Self-hosting SSO with Nginx (Part 1): Keycloak
https://joeeey.com/blog/selfhosting-sso-with-nginx-keycloak-part-1/, posted 14 May by peter in development hosting howto security toread
There are many tools that we can use for SSO, such as Authelia, Authentik, or Keycloak.
Although some of the aforementioned SSO tools may be easier to set up, I decided to go with Keycloak. Keycloak is an enterprise-level tool that is supported by Redhat. Using Keycloak will give us a lot of flexibility, and ticks the boxes for acceptable memory usage, theme-ability, and multi-factor authentication support.

Git - git-worktree Documentation
https://git-scm.com/docs/git-worktree, posted Jun '22 by peter in development documentation howto reference versioncontrol
In its simplest form,
git worktree add <path>automatically creates a new branch whose name is the final component of
<path>, which is convenient if you plan to work on a new topic. For instance,
git worktree add ../hotfixcreates new branch
hotfixand checks it out at path
../hotfix. To instead work on an existing branch in a new worktree, use
git worktree add <path> <branch>. On the other hand, if you just plan to make some experimental changes or do testing without disturbing existing development, it is often convenient to create a throwaway worktree not associated with any branch. For instance,
git worktree add -d <path>creates a new worktree with a detached
HEADat the same commit as the current branch.
If a working tree is deleted without using
git worktree remove, then its associated administrative files, which reside in the repository (see "DETAILS" below), will eventually be removed automatically (see
gc.worktreePruneExpirein git-config), or you can run
git worktree prunein the main or any linked worktree to clean up any stale administrative files.

Using Let's Encrypt for internal servers

But while there are many tools to automatically renew certificates for publicly available webservers (certbot, simp_le, I wrote about how to do that 3 years back), it's hard to find any useful information about how to issue certificates for internal non Internet facing servers and/or devices with Let's Encrypt.

Spreadsheet Formulas for Personal Finance
https://bou.ke/blog/formulas/, posted Aug '21 by peter in finance howto list math reference toread
I love spreadsheets. Spreadsheet programs like Microsoft's Excel, Apple's Numbers and Google Sheets are the secret heroes of our civilization.
I've also been interested in personal finance and the FIRE community for a while—not so much in the early retirement aspect but in the financial literacy it teaches its members. I have combined my passion for both into one mega-spreadsheet that I use to track my income, expenses, savings and investments in one overview. While creating this spreadsheet I got proficient in some new formulas, which I'll share here—and also write down for my own reference.
