Today I stopped serving requests for the domain

Acso-explorer was a patched version of gcc-explorer, bundled with pre-built cross-toolchains of gcc-m68k, gcc-mips and gcc-amd64.

The last request has been served October 29, 2016, but the node.js process was consuming 5-6% CPU with unjustified spikes to 10-12%.

I’ll be setting up a pointed to the container image on the Docker hub, and that will be the end of acso-explorer, at least for now.

I wrote a toy url shortener and people started using it

So yesterday I gave an introductory presentation on how to write web applications using Python, Flask and dokku. In my talk I shown how to go from zero to a fully functional application with a small but functional deployment environment based on Dokku.

The nice thing I noticed is that people started using it, and now I have some URLs shortened through my system.

The application is called musho, as in Micro Url SHOrtener. Here it is live, and you can find the source code on Gitlab.

I hope you like it 🙂
