Updates

Stay up to dates with our latest activities and progress.
To increase availability of Jitesoft in-house tool, a page have been set up and registered as a js.org domain for the Yolog JavaScript logging project!

Yolog is a logger which is environment agnostic, that is, it should work in any environment that supports JavaScript*.
The best thing with Yolog is that it is very easily customizable with a exposed plugin API. Creating a new plugin is really easy, and if you want, there are some official plugins that can be used right out of the box!

Feel free to try it out!
As usual, it's open source (MIT)!

* plugins are not always environment agnostic as the logger itself, this due to the fact that some requires API keys and other login information, which is not supposed to be exposed on the client side!

A new blog post have been posted at jite.eu which explains how to start build multi architecture images with docker and buildkit!

Excerpt:

Buildkit allows us to use some magic things, such as… build multiple images with a single builder, a builder that creates the manifest and even pushes it all to the registries you tag it for! Further on, by using the experimental syntax in your docker images, you have access to even more special features!

As said in earlier post, we have started to build our images as multi-platform/arch. Doing this requires some re-writing of the images and build scripts and also requires new build servers with better support for architecture emulation.
Currently we have discontinued a few of our low-range (OVZ) servers, as the kernel on those doesn't support multi-platform emulation as with a bare metal or none host-kernel bound virtualized server. Instead we have acquired a bare metal server with 8 cores and 32gb ram to be able to build all platforms without it taking more time than necessary.

In the earlier post, the images we had ported to build for multiple platforms where only the base images. The work have proceeded and a few more of our images are now supporting more architectures!

The following images have been updated:

  • NginX (Alpine Linux - amd64, arm64, ppc64le, i386, s390x)
  • Memcached (Alpine Linux - amd64, s390x, ppc64le)
  • Lighttpd (Alpine Linux - amd64, arm64, ppc64le, i386, s390x)
  • Docker (Alpine Linux - amd64, arm64, armv7, ppc64le, s390x)1
  • Kubectl (Alpine Linux - amd64, arm64, i386, ppc64le, s390x)

1 Different images support different architectures due to docker not supporting all in all versions.

The work continues and hopefully we will soon have support for all architectures in all our images!

Jitesoft have finally decided to take the step to expand our Docker images to multiple architectures. From now on, all our base images supports the following archs:

To extend the availability of the Jitesoft docker images, we have decided to start push to a new registry. This does not mean that we will stop pushing to neither Docker Hub nor GitLab, but that we now have even more registries you can choose from!

A set of new public docker images have been released from the Jitesoft organization. The following images are noteworthy:
