LXer: Sync your Fitbit on Linux with Galileo

Saturday 12th of November 2016 03:43:32 PM
If you have a Fitbit fitness device and wish to sync your device using the wireless dongle on your Linux machine, the good news is it is possible with the Bluetooth-based Fitbit devices, thanks to a small Python utility called Galileo. Note: you will need a bit of terminal-foo, but to be honest, I found the little program just as reliable if not more reliable and hassle-free than the official Fitbit apps on Android and Windows! In this short article we'll look at how to get it.

One of the core features of the policy was the adoption of an open source development model:

I was just watching The Big Short and I thought Steve Carrel's character Mark Baum bore more than a passing resemblance to Linus Torvalds. You guys have any other candidates?

TuxMachines: Programming News

Saturday 12th of November 2016 08:56:53 AM
  • Programming: Windows and Linux Lose Developers to Mac OS

    Both GNU/Linux and Windows have been slowly losing ground among developers. The Linux desktop hasn’t changed much in years and remains a clunky alternative. Windows 10 has made progress, but increasingly developers are choosing to use Macs. The number of developers using a Windows platform for development is expected to drop below 50 percent over the next year.

  • GitHub Enterprise 2.8 adds new workflow options

    The big changes rolled out for GitHub Enterprise 2.8 may seem familiar, but don't say GitHub is running out of ideas. Instead, the company is adding tools to GitHub Enterprise that enterprises may already know, rather than expand functionality exclusive to GitHub.

    Some new pieces, like the Reviews or Projects functions, will likely draw users because of their tight integration with the product or because they provide the equivalent of a third-party option. But others, like Jupyter support, appeal because they open up GitHub Enterprise to use cases that didn’t exist before or would have been difficult to implement.

  • Tumblr Is The Latest Company Boasting About PHP7 Performance

    We've talked a lot on Phoronix about PHP 7 due to the mighty impressive performance improvements found in this major update that was released at the end of last year. Many companies have blogged about their positive performance experiences in upgrading to PHP7, many of which we've shared on Phoronix, and Tumblr is now the latest company to boast about their migration from PHP5 to PHP7.

TuxMachines: Linux Foundation and Linux

Saturday 12th of November 2016 08:55:58 AM
  • The Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative Renews Funding for Reproducible Builds Project
  • Fluentd Joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

    Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) voted to accept Fluentd as the fourth hosted project after Kubernetes, Prometheus and OpenTracing. You can find more information on the project in this proposal presented to the TOC recently.

    As CNCF builds out multiple paths for adopting cloud native computing, the TOC is looking to unite high-quality and relevant projects into the Foundation. Fluentd was started by Treasure Data in 2011 and is an open source data collector that allows you to implement at an unified logging layer. Logging is a crucial part of cloud native architectures and aligns well with CNCF’s goal to significantly increase the overall flexibility and reliability of modern distributed systems environments capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self healing multi-tenant nodes.

  • How Blockchain Will Change Your Life

    Until the mid-1990s, the internet was little more than an arcane set of technical standards used by academics. Few predicted the profound effect it would have on society. Today, blockchain—the technology behind the digital currency bitcoin—might seem like a trinket for computer geeks. But once widely adopted, it will transform the world.

  • Nithya Ruff's Appointment to Linux Foundation Aids Diversity Efforts

    It's been a couple of weeks since the nonprofit Linux Foundation announced the addition of Nithya Ruff, along with Erica Brescia and Jeff Garzik, to its board. Ruff comes to the table with a long list of accomplishments. For the past two years she's been at Western Digital, where she's currently the director of open source office and is also the founding president of the company's Women’s Innovation Network. During this same period, she's been a member of the OpenStack Diversity Working Group and Women of OpenStack.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
