We are surrounded with a class of mobile devices that are ten or more years out of date, and predate any iPhone or Android phone entirely:
- scanners that grocery clerks use to track inventory,
- stylus tablets that couriers log their deliveries on,
- handhelds that stockkeepers take into the warehouse,
- the button-covered rectangle the agent uses to check in your rental car.
Most of them are Windows CE based devices which were used by consumers at the end of last century! But why is this? The industry needs an enterprise operating system optimized for reliability, but also battery life. As Apple seems unwilling to allow non-Apple devices to run its operating system, it becomes a race between the other two big player: Microsoft and Google.
Bowery is a limitless development environment available at http://bowery.io/.It is free for DEVELOPERS and STARTUPS. All you need to do is configure one simple file per host. With a few lines bowery is setting up a host inkl. your app, the dependencies (like redis, mongodb,..) and up you go. Your app will be online in a short time inkl. ssh access to the VM.
PS: Signup is done via the CLI. I think this is a trend
Working with several Vagrant boxes in parallel can be tricky. So today I wrote a small shell script to help me here. It will
start the VM (if not already running),
Login into the VM via SSH,
suspend the VM after exiting the VM (if you want)
if [ -f ./Vagrantfile ]
if vagrant status | grep -q "running ("
echo Box is already running
echo Starting box ...
echo Login in ...
read -n1 -p "Suspend box ? [y,N]" doit
case $doit in
y|Y) vagrant suspend ;;
n|N) echo OK ;;
*) echo OK ;;
echo No Vagrantfile found!
