What Isaiah might say.

During my daily bible study I came upon Isaiah 1:1-20 and thought wow this sounds really familiar. I thought to myself... I wonder what it would sound like if Isaiah the prophet lived in the United States and saw all the things that are happening today. What would he say. This is my take. Maybe this could inspire you to take a crack at it on your own.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the United States of America please take this to your heart. The sons and daughters of current and future generations are revolting against the Lord God Most High. We have lost the common knowledge of whom we serve, and placed and idol of money, and property in His glorious place. We are the richest sinful nation in the world, and are weighed down by the luxurious appeal of corruption and iniquity of others. We have abandoned the Lord, have no regret for the sin in our hearts and have completely turned away from him. When will this rebellion end? When will we see that the pain and suffering of bad health, depression, social decay and lack of compassion is wrong. From one end of the universe to the other there is not one good thing that can come from the rebellion against God. Our land is becoming a wasted land being devoured by strangers that our founding fathers were against. Thankfully God has left good people in our land or it would be completely destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah of old. It is time for us all to learn to do good, seek justice, and remove the ruthless malice in our hearts. Let us defend the helpless and lift up our fellow believers and non believers. Let us show compassion, and that we can make mistakes, yet admit that we made the mistakes and repent for them as sins. Let us reason together with the lord and say “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool”. If we consent and obey we may have the best of the land. However if we refuse we will loose it all.

JSON Schema testing with Postman

Postman is becoming quite the popular tool for accessing and testing REST api services. One of the cool features is that you can write some Javascript tests on your responses. Built into Postman is also the Tiny Validator v4 and Cheerio. Cheerio is a small core JQuery like implementation. The problem I have is that there is no way to import a schema file from a remote place or a file. This will be about how I get around that issue.Pre-request Script var uri=''; $.get(uri + '/someFolder/schema.json', function(schema) { postman.setEnvironmentVariable('schema', JSON.stringify(schema)); }); This Pre-request script is what saves the day. There are a couple of timing issues that are present due to async processing. If you were to put this in your test script your chances of it not completing in time are very high and you would get inconsistent results. If you are familiar with JQuery the $.get should look familiar as a ajax call that d…

Mock HTTP calls with Angular and Protractor

One of the benefits using AngularJS is also using some test tools like Protractor. Protractor is a tool that was made for Angular testing. Many times when testing you will need to mock some data so that you can see if your application responds in the correct manner. Let us assume that we have the following HTML file running our application.
<!doctype html> <html ng-app="demo"> <head> <title>Hello</title> <script src=""></script> <script src=""></script> <script src="hello.js"></script> </head> <body> <div ng-controller="Hello"> <p>Hello <span id="gname">{{}}</span></p> </div> …

Remote API useful tricks for Docker on Mac OS X

Install SocatSocat allow you to forward ports to a variety of things. For Docker forwarding a port to the docker.sock file makes a quick way to get access to the Docker remote api. Docker also allow a way to open up that TCP port however on Mac it is temperamental and hard to usebrew install socat socat -d TCP-LISTEN:2375,reuseaddr,fork UNIX:/var/run/docker.sock & Create an IP aliasRunning Docker containers locally is a fairly common thing. Interconnectivity between containers works naturally. However, sometimes you may also want a container to connect back to the Docker Remote API. If you are constantly on the go changing networks you do not want to have to change that IP address every time. A great use case for this is running Jenkins and using docker slavessudo ifconfig lo0 alias Remote API There are also some interesting endpoints you can use for informationcurl http://localhost:2375 curl http://localhost:2375/containers/json curl http://localhost:2375/image…
