  • Tanglu 2 (Bartholomea annulata) status update #1

    The Tanglu project is now a proud member (licensee) of the Open Invention Network (OIN), which build a pool of defensive patents to protect the Linux ecosystem from companies who are trying to use patents against Linux. Although the Tanglu community does not fully support the generally positive stance the OIN has about software patents, the OIN effort is very useful and we agree with it’s goal. Therefore, Tanglu joined the OIN as licensee.

  • 10 Quick Facts About Docker Container Virtualization

    The open-source Docker virtualization technology is one of the most exciting innovations to enter the enterprise IT space in years. Docker is a container virtualization technology that offers the promise of a more efficient, lightweight approach to application deployment than most organizations are currently implementing. With a traditional virtualization hypervisor like VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V or the open-source Xen and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technologies, each virtual machine (VM) needs its own operating system. In contrast, with Docker, applications sit inside a container that resides on a single host operating system, that can serve many containers. Although Docker is a relatively new effort that got under way in March 2013, the project has matured quickly and the Docker 1.0 milestone was released on June 9. Alongside the Docker 1.0 release came the official debut of the Docker Hub, which is a repository for what are known as "dockerized" applications that can be deployed to any Docker host. Some of the world's largest technology vendors, including IBM, Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Red Hat, support Docker. eWEEK examines the world of Docker container virtualization.

An introduction to Joplin, an open source Evernote alternative

Joplin is an open source cross-platform note-taking and to-do application. It can handle a large number of notes, organized into notebooks, and can synchronize them across multiple devices. The notes can be edited in Markdown, either from within the app or with your own text editor, and each application has an option to render Markdown with formatting, images, URLs, and more. Any number of files, such as images and PDFs, can be attached to a note, and notes can also be tagged. I started developing Joplin when Evernote changed its pricing model and because I wanted my 4,000+ notes to be stored in a more open format, free of any proprietary solution. To that end, I have developed three Joplin applications, all under the MIT License: for desktop (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), for mobile (Android and iOS), and for the terminal (Windows, MacOS, and Linux). All the applications have similar user interfaces and can synchronize with each other. They are based on open standards and technologies including SQLite and JavaScript for the backend, and Terminal Kit (Node.js), Electron, and React Native for the three front ends. Read more
