I was hard down for ~5min last night while rolling out secrets in parameter store. 0.149.0, 0.149.1, 0.149.2, and 0.149.3 were bad releases #fail. 0.149.4 is stable: Postmortem pending.

41-commit weekend ๐ŸคฉFeel much better about my #webpack , #ansible, and #packer code #win

The computers did exactly what I told them to do ๐Ÿ˜• #fail

Add in some manual #terraform state edits and deleting things in the #aws console and we're recovered #fail #win

23:11 utc nov 04 2018 permalink

At least I was able to repro in local #vagrant once I figured out what was going on. #win

A red herring was adding a call to dd in the cleanup script to zero the free space on the disk. I thought I was somehow filling the disk and not reclaiming space.

23:05 utc nov 04 2018 permalink

The cleanup script didn't error because my set flags were in the shebang but #packer was invoking the script via bash instead of directly #fail So many yaks.

This change was introduced in 0.146.0 but did not manifest due to a bug in the cleanup script. I was not passing -y to apt autoremove, which caused the command to abort and end the script with an error. #fail

Removing just the dev package with #ansible #provisioning had no effect in local env, but combined with the apt purge in the #packer script, uninstalled mysqlclient

23:00 utc nov 04 2018 permalink

Root cause: My app depends on the python package mysqlclient, which in turn depends on the libmysqlclient system package. I was pulling this in transitively via the dev package required for building.

Undeployable manifested as healthz returning 502 when adding a new instance to the ALB, marking it as unhealthy and timing out #terraform

I recently started cleaning up after myself during #provisioning. There are two steps to this: #ansible uninstalls build deps and #packer executes a cleanup script that does an apt purge and autoremove

22:57 utc nov 04 2018 permalink

Got into an undeployable state due to differences in #provisioning between local and prod environments #fail

I completed removing build artifacts from source control. Static assets dist and document-root dirs: replaced with running #webpack on host. Third-party #ansible roles: installed from galaxy via #packer and #vagrant at provision time. #win

That was a 35-commit weekend. New features and improved code quality. #win

Significantly refactored my #webpack static asset pipeline today. No longer build assets locally and check them in. Build happens as part of #ansible provisioning. #win

I added code block and syntax highlighting to my new #blog. Planning on using it for an upcoming post about #terraform.

03:22 utc oct 28 2018 permalink

#django is a joy to use. Making my new blog app was so easy. Each view is only two lines of code! #win

I accidentally skipped v0.139.0 today because prettier barfed during cutting the release and I forgot to reset my git tree. I guess I forgot to run prettier on my whole repo when I enabled it. #fail
