A Dockerized 'Handle' Server
· ☕ 3 min read · ✍️ Mark A. McFate
Today’s quest… to build a new server for Digital.Grinnell, preferably one that is “Dockerized”. I’m going to start by forking datacite/docker-handle, a project that looks promising, and following it along with the documentation in chapter 3 of the HANDLE.NET (version 9) Technical Manual.

This post picks up from where Configuring DGDocker2 left off. In it I will establish a workflow to setup a “Dockerized” server complete with Traefik, Portainer, and Who Am I. It should be relatively easy to add additional non-static services to any server that is initially configured using this package.

My mission today is to successfully migrate the images/containers/services chronicled in post 030, “Dockerized Omeka-S: Starting Over” to Docker-ready node dgdocker2 without compromising any of the services that already run there. Pushing WMI Omeka-S to Production on dgdocker2 Grinnell’s dgdocker2 server, specifically dgdocker2.

Building Grocy in Docksal

Grocy looks lika a great little PHP stack application for me. It’s aim is to help folks organize and inventory their “stuff”, with a slant toward food and groceries. I need this! Since I’m also a big fan of Docker and Docksal, naturally I wanted to spin Grocy up in one of these environments.

This command snippet needs a blog post of its own! I typically use the following command stream to clean up any Docker cruft before I begin anew. Note: Uncomment the third line ONLY if you want to delete images and download new ones.

Attention! The Docksal portion of this discussion DID NOT WORK PROPERLY so I’ve hidden it from public view. Don’t use this project with Docksal (fin commands) until further notice! I’ve created a new fork of dodeeric/omeka-s-docker at DigitalGrinnell/omeka-s-docker, and it introduces a new docker-compose.

Removing Traefik's Weak Cipher Suites

Most of the servers I deploy to and manage here at Grinnell College are now “Dockerized”, and all of those use Traefik to manage traffic, of course. Before a web app or server can be opened for access to the world here, it has to pass a vulnerability scan, and I’m not privy to the specifics of that scan.

A Blog is Born
· ☕ 2 min read · ✍️ Mark A. McFate
Have you ever wondered how a blog is born? The story behind this blog begins with my interest in stepping back from the CMS world, primarily Drupal, to discover the joys of static site generation. The journey begins in earnest at the 2016 DLF Forum: Milwaukee on the eve of the United States’ 2016 national election, when all the buzz that wasn’t political, was about building static web sites, and Jekyll.
