The branch should have been created using the previous command


git checkout [name of new or existing branch]

The -b creates a new branch and switches to the new branch.


git checkout -b

Delete a branch


git branch -d

This push the changes to the remote repository and delete the branch

Fetch -To get updates from a remote branch.

To synchronize your repository with a remote repository, fetching all the data it has into your branch reference locally for merging


git fetch

git pull -> This will fetch from the remote and merge with the current branch locally

Push – To update a remote repository with the changes you’ve made locally.

It will take what your [branch] looks like and push it to be [branch] on the remote, if possible. If someone else has pushed since you last fetched and merged, the Git server will deny your push until you are up to date.


git push

How to update your project which has already been modified from the current master branch. (similar to SVN update)

When you have changed on your working copy, from the command line do:


git stash

This will stash your current changes and clear your status


git pull

This will pull changes from an upstream branch. Make sure it says fast-forward in the report. If it doesn’t, you are probably doing an unintended merge


git stash pop

This will apply stashed changes back to working copy and remove the changes from stash unless you have conflicts. In the case of conflict, they will stay in the stash so you can start over if needed.

If you need to see what is in your stash


git stash list

eldam 1.2.0 released

We can now update and delete multiple document records using Elasticsearch query DSL and scripts. In this release below two new methods are included.

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/eldam/1.2.0 

Documentation for this release at http://eldam.readthedocs.io/en/v1.2.0/

eldam 1.0.1 released

ElasticSearch Data Manager (eldam). eldam works with Zope transaction. You can add, delete or update documents all through your session. All data will be included in Elasticsearch database at the end when the transaction is committed. The module can be used in your web application to add/modify or delete elastic search data that will be committed along with other transaction data manager like zope.sqlalchemy.  If any one of the transaction fails, then every Elasticsearch committed data will be reverted back. It’s like all go in or none. eldam implements two-phase commit as defined by the Zope transaction module.  The module is well suited for a pyramid application.

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/eldam/1.0.1 

How to install eldam


pip install eldam

Try it out


import transaction
from eldam.elasticdatamanager import ElasticDataManager
edm = ElasticDataManager()
edm.connect({
'elasticsearch_hosts':["16.83.62.232:9200","16.83.63.114:9200"]
} ,"test")
edm.add({'_type':'group',
'_id':'2',
'_source':{
"gid": 234,
"owner": "bemineni",
"name": "Sammy",
"grp_hash": "456678",
"description": "Sammy group"
}
})
transaction.commit()

Generating a sha256 self signed certificate

We can generate a self-signed certificate using one simple command. This is fast and simple

izero@Ganesha ~/devel/demo $ openssl req -x509 -sha256 -nodes -days 365
-newkey rsa:2048 -keyout device.key -out device.crt
Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key
..............................................................+++
........+++
writing new private key to 'device.key'
-----
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
-----
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:TX
Locality Name (eg, city) []:Houston
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Lotus Inc
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:Lotus apps
Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []:iamzeroblog.wordpress.com
Email Address []:srikanth.bemineni@gmail.com

 

What all did happen by executing this single command?

  1. We just created a new 2048 bit RSA key “device key “
  2. The command internally generated a CSR (certificate sign request).
  3. The command internally used the device key to sign the CSR and generate a device.crt signed the certificate

Now use your certificate(device.crt) and key(device.key) in your web server.

Who is guiding your state of mind? Can you fight it ?

I want to start with some scenarios dealing with different people in your life.

  • Lets say you heard in news about a well know business person who killed his wife for money . He is on trial today. You got a crucial clue about this murder. If this clue is submitted to the authorities, he will be definitely convicted.
  • You met a person in a store, he smiled at you and  you smiled back. You got acquainted, you two guys are not longer strangers any more. You came out of the store with that person. You just found out the that he didn’t pay for an item and you remind him about that, but he says its fine.
  • There is kid in your street, you knew his family for past 10 years. You saw this kid grow up in front of your eyes. You just came to know the that the kid is involved in some gang and is dealing drugs.
  • Your son/daughter hit a 10 year old kid with your car. He/she didn’t come out of the car to help the kid, but instead came back home. Nobody saw what happened on that street. You just came to know about this from your son/daughter
  • You are travelling in a bus, and met with an accident. The bus fell into a river, you know how to swim and escape. You also feel that you can save some people.

Now think what you are going to do in all these situations?

There is varying level of emotions, feeling and personal loss that can result based on the righteous decision you make. In some situations the decision can affect your life very personally, In some it may be minimal, some times it may not affect you at all, you may also give suggestions on what is right thing to do at that time.

I feel we have varying degree of will to fight these demons in our mind to take the righteous decision. The situation may not always deal with some simple things mentioned above or with some ones life itself. The decision may with be with respect to materialistic gain or loss.

In the above questions, that last two situation is where our demons really kicks in. I feel if a person can really overcome this, then  he is a pure soul who has conquered his demons. We can also at our subconscious  level can tell where we are, and  who is guiding our mind at this moment, is it the seven sins of evil or the path to righteousness . If we are with a person for long time, we can definitely tell what his decision would be , when these kind of situation occurs in his life.

Most of people including me move around this scale.

scale

As this blog is written people in India are getting their new currency. I have been talking to some of my friends, seeing so many videos of people blaming the decision. Some people say common people should not be affected, some say government need to attack the big shots. From my perspective, every person in India from the multi millionaire to a street beggar is  hiding some black money. Every one has some or significant amount of money that is not “reported” to the government. Looking up to the above questions, the situation falls under the last category. “My money is gone” for the mistakes that I have done to not disclose my money to the government.  The crossed sentence is the whole statement which has the answer for the righteous decision. Lets see to how much extent the people of India are going to fight the demons to make the country a better place.

 

Deleting the parent who owns you

man-cutting-a-branch

In my ten years of the programming experience, this is the most common programming bug that I always see in the code.


class A;

class B
{
public:
  B(A* parent)
  {
    m_parent = parent;
  }

  void funcB()
  {
     delete m_parent;
  }

public:

   A* m_parent;
};

class A
{

 A()
 {
    bptr = new B(this);
 }

 ~A()
  {

  }

 void funcA()
 {
    bptr->funcB();
 }

 void sayHi()
 {

     cout<<"Hi this is A";  }  public:     B* bptr; }; main() {    A* aptr = new A();    aptr->funcA();
   aptr->sayHi();
}

Some times these may be not be a straight forward bug like the one mentioned above. The difficulty is in finding when the Object was deleted. The best way is to put a break point at A’s destruct-or.

In Qt always try to use deleteLater to delete an object. Some times the object would have generated the event, and we should not be deleting the calling object from the slot or event processing handler. The best example I can give is during the socket disconnect event. The disconnect signal would be emitted on the socket closeEvent.  If this event is handled by a slot in your program then , don’t delete the socket in the disconnected handler slot.  Always use deleteLater(socket) to delete the socket object in the closeEvent handler. This will make sure that the socket object is deleted before the event loop starts processing the next event.
