How to Create a Docker Image From a Container

In this article on Dataset’s blog, you can get a step-by-step instructions on how to create a Docker container, modify its internal state, and then save the container as an image. This is really handy when you’re working out how an image should be constructed because you can just keep tweaking a running container until it works as you want it to. When you’re done, just save it as an image. You can use the following guide to customize and deploy the DataSet agent for common tasks such as adding parsers for your log files, adding redaction/sampling rules, running custom plugins, or mounting volumes for application log files. Okay, let’s jump right into it.

Getting Started Quickly With PowerShell Logging

PowerShell is often used to perform critical maintenance tasks on computers or servers. It’s important for admins to know how if these scripts ran well or not. In this post on Dataset’s blog, you can look into how you can log with PowerShell in a very basic way by writing your own logging function. Then we’ll cover why logging from PowerShell is useful. We’ll also talk about what you should log and what you should not log. Finally, we’ll look at two different options that will make your logging lives easier.

How to Use the GitHub API to List Repositories

As a software engineer, you probably use GitHub quite often, be it as part of your day job, while working on your solo projects, or when contributing to open source. Generally speaking, GitHub’s UI is clean, intuitive, and nice to use. However, if you need to integrate GitHub with the applications you write, using GitHub manually just won’t cut it. That’s where GitHub’s REST API comes in handy. This post on Fusebit’s blog from Carlos Schults is a hands-on guide to the GitHub API.

Discord API Rate Limiting, A Troubleshooting Guide

Most freely available APIs and commercial APIs have a rate limit. The rate limit’s there so that hackers or bots don’t abuse it, because if they send too many requests quickly, it could break the API endpoint. It can also be applied to user types, e.g., paying users usually have higher limits than free users. But sometimes, this becomes an issue for a genuine person who’s developing a product using these APIs. In this post from Nabendu Biswas on Fusebit’s blog, you can look into dealing with Discord API rate limiting from a developer’s perspective.

Discord’s REST API, An Introduction With Examples

Does Discord have a REST API? The short answer is “yes.” In addition to making bots, the Discord API supports REST. Thanks to the Discord REST API, you can build beyond just bots that run with your Discord server in the app. For example, you can use the Discord REST API to authenticate users with your external web or mobile apps. In this post from Pius Aboyi on Fusebit’s blog, you’ll learn how to get started with the Discord REST API and see some examples of practical things you can do using the API.

How to Use the GitHub Pulls API to Manage Pull Requests

The pull request process is one of the key facets of working with GitHub. Engineers ask for and give reviews through the pull request and discuss design and architectural decisions. Additionally, pull requests often act as quality gates, kickstarting the CI process.You might often wish you could do more with pull requests, creating automations and integrations around them. The good news is that you can use the GitHub Pulls API. And in this post from Carlos Schults on Fusebit’s blog, you’ll learn how to get started with this GitHub API to manage your pull requests.
