Getting Started with Flask

In this post, I will give you a very basic example to run a hello world program in flask. What make it different with the other tutorial is that this will enable your program to run from a cloud server, not just on a local server.

Before we go further

Because you want to run it in a cloud server, most probably you will use your ssh to connect and run it. However, you need to know that when you end your ssh session, your Flask server will also be shut down. To prevent that, my favourite is to use screen. If you are ubuntu lover like me, you can install it by typing

$ sudo apt-get install -y screen

Before you do any work, start by typing

$ screen

It will open a session for you. Later, after you run your Flask server, you may want to detach the session using this command

ctrl-a d

If you later want to go back to your session, you can do it by using the following command

$ screen -r

OK, without further ado, this is your first hello world program in Flask

# hello.py

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/')
def hello():
    return 'hello world'

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run(host='0.0.0.0', port=5000)

You can run the program using

$ python hello.py

Say that you run it in cloud with address 183.93.3.23, you can open the hello world program from your browser by typing

183.93.3.23:5000

This will show you a welcome message

hello world

After I mentioned earlier, if you want to let your hello world server to run, you can just detach from the session using the following command in terminal

ctrl-a d

Hope it helps :D

Find JIRA issues mentioned in Confluence Page

I have been walking through a lot of pages in internet but have not found any answer except one. However, the answer is not complete, so I will share my experience here. This feature is very useful, especially to summarize the issues found during certain tests, where the tests are reported in a confluence page. I found that there are so many questions about this, but Atlassian seems does not want to bother with this request. I found one way to do this by the following tricks Take one JIRA issue that related to the target confluence page (in this case, say it is GET-895) Find the global ID of a JIRA issue: http://bach.dc1.scram.com:8080/rest/api/latest/issue/GET-895/remotelink It will show the JSON like this: [{"id":28293,"self":"http://bach.dc1.scram.com:8080/rest/api/latest/issue/GET-895/remotelink/28293","globalId":"appId=662e1ccf-94da-3121-96ae-053d90587b29&pageId=105485659","application":{

Mininet/Containernet Problem: Exception: Error creating interface pair (s2-eth5,s3-eth1): RTNETLINK answers: File exists

If you did not shut down the previous running mininet/containernet network (e.g. if you lose your connection to remote server), you will got the following error when you try to rerun your mininet network Traceback (most recent call last): File "./mynet.py", line 31, in <module> net.addLink(d2, s1) File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/mininet/net.py", line 403, in addLink File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/mininet/link.py", line 430, in __init__ File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/mininet/link.py", line 474, in makeIntfPair File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/mininet/util.py", line 202, in makeIntfPair Exception: Error creating interface pair (d2-eth0,s1-eth2): RTNETLINK answers: File exists In order to solve the problem, you need to clean up the previous running topology by using the following command sudo mn -c It will clean up all your cache. It will be something like this $ sudo mn -c *** Re

Akte, paspor, dan visa untuk anak Indonesia yang lahir di Malaysia

Alhamdulillah, akhirnya urusan administrasi kenegaraan-nya Marwa sudah hampir selesai. Kemarin sore, di paspor marwa sudah ada visa pelancong selama 30 hari, tinggal nunggu proses di Putrajaya selama 7 hari untuk mendapatkan Multiple Entry-nya. Selepas itu, selesai.... Di dalam tulisan ini, saya pengen sedikit cerita pengalaman saya mengurus administrasi untuk anak Indonesia yang lahir di Malaysia (saya tidak tahu apakah untuk di negara lain prosedurnya juga sama). #1. Administrasi di klinik terdekat (sebelum melahirkan) Sebelum istri melahirkan, istri disarankan untuk mendaftar dan memeriksakan kandungannya secara rutin di klinik terdekat (meskipun hanya klinik, tapi fasilitas pemeriksaan dan labnya cukup lengkap dan canggih). Pada fase ini, istri akan diberi buku pemeriksaan. Buku ini penting untuk mengetahui kondisi si ibu, dan perkembangan janin. Buku ini akan diisi oleh dokter atau perawat yang memeriksa kandungan. #2. Administrasi setelah melahirkan Di klinik biasanya tid
