Inspired by @jlelse’s post on DNSControl, I moved my few DNS configurations to use that auto-deployable system and I must say I am amazed. I’ve known a few other systems for such kind of automation like Ansible, but never used them. In the meanwhile, I also started using GNU’s stow to manage my dotfiles. It’s much better than my previous system where I had a script that just copied the dotfiles over. This way they’re symlinked so the changes will be reflected with ease. I’m happy with it.
That’s such a nice story. I actually mostly use GitHub’s interface and the CLI to work with Git. I only recall using SVN for publishing WordPress plugins a long time ago. I have had to modules during my bachelor’s with the same teacher that required us to use the Concurrent Versions Systems and that one can be a pain. I’m always afraid I’m gonna break something 😂
