GitLab.com is a competitor of Github. It’s a service provider for git-based source code repositories that offers much more than it’s bigger brother. In this post I will try to convince you to try it out for your next project.

GitLab is not only a simple git hosting; its features impact the whole development process, the way of contributing to a project, executing and running tests, protecting source code from changes, more and more.

This year (2016) and last year, a few new laws were introduced by Cameron’s government, so I decided to get myself VPN. First, I tried a lifetime TigerVPN for 30$, nice deal. Unfortunately, TigerVPN doesn’t fully support Linux OpenVPN implementation. Connection is dropped when reaching ~900kb/s upload+download; network-manager tells that server time outed and it never reconnects due to… an authentication problem.

So I started looking for other affordable solutions. Two biggest competitors are PIA and TorGuard. I started reading discussions on reddit about those two, and it seems, there are very little differences. I was given a rolling promotion code for TorGuard, a 50% discount code that can be used after my 2 years long service comes to an end. It’s good.

My major project in Java (Android) involved image manipulation where I used JHLabs. I found there was no easy way to add JHLabs support for Android without extracting sources and manually adding them to the project. So there it is now:
https://gitlab.com/agilob/JHLabs_android

It’s compatible with gradle build system, so you can easily add it to your gradle project.

To use it in your project:

  1. Go to the main folder of your application
  2. mkdir third_party
  3. Edit settings.gradle and add this line
    include 'third_party:jhlabs2'
  4. Add this line to your dependencies:
    compile project(':third_party:jhlabs2')
  5. It should be done now!

You can see it working in my project!

A friend notified me today about an offer on stacksocial where you can get lifetime TigerVPN for only 29$!

TigerVPN is one of the most respected companies that care about your privacy. According to this table, they are one of the best VPN providers, based on TorrentFreak survey from 2014. What’s most important, they claim not to keep logs, don’t yhgmm… respect DMCA, don’t block P2P and don’t try to identify users.

I saw such question on SO. There was no solution with RegEx so… I was bored I think.

public static boolean isValid(String ip) {
    boolean isvalid;
 
    isvalid = ip.matches(
            "(([0-9]|[0-9]{0,2}|1[0-9]*{0,2}|2[0-5][0-5]|0{0,3}).){3}" +
             "([0-9]|[0-9]{0,2}|1[0-9]*{0,2}|2[0-5][0-5]|0{0,3})"
    );
 
    return isvalid;
}

You can work with SQL queries in Qt and SQL in many different ways, here I will show you how I came up with a working method. To keep things simple, I am not going to use any UI to print or edit queries. It will be just source code and stdout, as a database engine I will use SQLite3.

After you created your project, edit project.pro and locate line:

QT       += core

Modify this line by adding `sql`:

QT       += core sql

Since now, when you compile your project, QtSql module will be linked to the project:

g++ -Wl,-O1 -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro -o QtSql main.o   -lQt5Sql -lQt5Core -lpthread

This blog is also available in .onion domain. Both blogs have different databases, DB users and passwords, different WordPress configurations, and as a result, they have different data in DB column.

After publishing a new post here, I do not want to manually copy posts from here to there and I want images from b.agilob.net to be available in .onion to avoid any clearnet connections. To do so, the content of each post must be scanned for ‘/‘ and this string must be replaced with ‘http://agiloblulimjeqlq.onion/‘.

There are two ways to set clan as your default compiler in Qt-Creator. One way will set LLVM as default in Qt-Creator for you only and the other one will set LLVM as default for your project, so everyone cloning/forking your repo will use clang too. If you want clang as default only for you, go in Qt-Creator to Tools -> Options -> Build & Run -> Kits select your default kit, I have `Desktop` and set Compiler to CLang. Continue reading
