    Hi all, I threw this together over the last two weekends as an alternative to falling into the Spotify rut that I had found myself in. It's pretty simple, and I am hosting as little of it as possible (hence the static website).

    I am not doing any tracking or analytics, but I have linked to a form where you can fill out some info about your thoughts on it. Please do so as I would like to make it easier to use.

    Happy Listening!

    Edit: apparently I don't know how to format titles for urls...

    Thanks for the clarification, your discussion helps :).

    based on this, it should definitely be possible using a reverse-proxy. I had a quick google, and it seems that nginx now supports reverse-proxying TCP streams[1]. Great news, now you can do subdomain based matching to route different users to different containers.

    ie. user1.example.com -> container1

    In terms of configuring nginx to dynamically update routes as you register new users, I would recommend the jwilder repo as a starting point[2].

    I think the linked resources should provide a starting point for you to play with. It does require that you have some way to set DNS records (you can use your hosts file for testing). I would be very interested in seeing if you get this working, and what you think of it.

    ps. Regarding resource restrictions, docker has builtin tools for that.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the info, I hadn't heard of the tup system before.

    Yeah, it would be difficult to write code that can be formally verified if one can hook into the compiler.

    Regarding dependency management, I was thinking more along the lines of 3rd-party libraries (similar to pip/npm). Do you have an idea about this, or are you not at that stage yet?

    Hi, this is a really interesting language, I really like it. The source code seems pretty minimal too which makes it much more manageable.

    Are you interested in doing any sort of formal verification on the semantics of your language? I haven't looked into how powerful the compiler API is, so it may not allow for this.

    Secondly, have you had a think about dependency management? Have you thought about writing your own tool, or are you going to piggyback on something else?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Don't buy gear straight away, and talk to your local gym about deals they may have. The gyms around me have a 'if you do the training course with us, we'll give you a discount on gear' thing going on.

    I'll be honest, I only read the original whitepaper and some accompanying implementations of blockchain in its infancy. And from what I understood of the concept I saw it as a linked-list. granted, this is technically a DAG, but it has the limitation that each node may have a max of two edges.

    I have heard through the grapevine that Blockchain is changing its technological underpinnings to something more sustainable and scalable (and hopefully more energy-efficient) but I find it hard to read anything on the topic. Mostly because as soon as I start looking for blockchain related discussions or content it very quickly turns into a flamewar of speculation and namecalling.

    Despite this, I am actually interested in the technology and if you have any good (tech-focused) resources on the new developments in blockchain technologies.

    Disclaimer: I don't really follow this field, and when I refer to blockchain, I should really clarify it to mean Bitcoin v1.0

    In its most its most simple form, git has a similar structure to the blockchain, but rather than being a linked-list, it is a DAG.

    This is a pretty short and 1000 mile overview of the system, but I find it helps in visualising how everything fits together.

    Edit: I see that others have posted pretty decent resources on it. I'll leave my comment anyway

    I think this is good advice in general (as well as the sibling thread), but as OP seems to be new to the container ecosystem, it may be confusing to recommend what are essentially 'bleeding-edge' techniques for managing containers.

    Disclaimer: bleeding-edge does not mean unstable. Just that the mindset is changing in industry towards immutable/managed-infra, and not everyone is there yet (but soon hopefully!)

    This is a question that is attempting to be answered by the likes of Kubernetes/orchestrators. There are definitely ways to get routing to work correctly as all containers are essentially NAT'd and then that network is bridged via your host to the outside world.

    I assume you want to be able to SSH into your docker containers so that you can manage them, this isn't really how they are designed to run, as any changes you may make when they are running will be lost if they are restarted. It's better to think of them as immutable virtualmachines. And if you do want to hop into a container while it's running, then there is always the possibility of using ssh to get to the host machine, then docker exec -it <docker-container-name> /bin/bash.

    When it comes to inbound traffic, there are a few options... I mentioned them in my top-level comment, but I think it may be worth illustrating what I do on my own server.

    My setup is a single server running an nginx instance (one ip address), which I have pointed all of my domains at (foo.com, bar.com, baz.com). Then I have configured nginx to forward any traffic destined for foo.com to go to the container I have specified as the handler for foo.com. This can all be done using the jwilder/nginx-proxy container that I linked to in my other comment. I should add a disclaimer that in this setup, you will not be able to arbitrarily expose many ports, or directly ssh into any container.

    I think we would benefit from understanding what it is you are trying to do with your docker containers. This would help us to give you more specific advice on how to configure your server/network
