Fedora 28 : Integrate tinymce editor with Fedora and Django.

This is a raw tutorial about how to integrate the python module named django-tinymce with a Django project.
I used the raw word because you need to have a working Django project into your Fedora distro.
You can see my old tutorial about Django to see how to build a Django project.
About this python module, you can read more here.
The django-tinymce is a Django application that contains a widget to render a form field as a TinyMCE editor.
I have a project named trydjango with a Django application named products into my django folder.
I used activate command to activate my virtual environment:
[mythcat@desk django]$ source bin/activate
I install this python module named django-tinymce:
(django) [mythcat@desk django]$ pip install django-tinymce4-lite
Collecting django-tinymce4-lite
Installing collected packages: jsmin, django-tinymce4-lite
Successfully installed django-tinymce4-lite-1.7.2 jsmin-2.2.2
Let's see my folder project django named src:
(django) [mythcat@desk django]$ cd src/
(django) [mythcat@desk src]$ ll
total 136
-rw-r--r--. 1 mythcat mythcat 135168 Sep 28 12:21 db.sqlite3
-rwxrwxr-x. 1 mythcat mythcat    541 Sep 23 18:56
drwxrwxr-x. 4 mythcat mythcat    142 Sep 26 21:45 pages
drwxrwxr-x. 4 mythcat mythcat    142 Sep 28 18:30 products
drwxrwxr-x. 3 mythcat mythcat    112 Sep 28 12:04 templates
drwxrwxr-x. 3 mythcat mythcat     93 Sep 28 12:14 trydjango
The installation is simple and star with to your and file:
(django) [mythcat@desk src]$ cd trydjango/
(django) [mythcat@desk trydjango]$ vim 

(django) [mythcat@desk trydjango]$ vim

from django.contrib import admin
from django.urls import path, include

from pages.views import home_view, about_view, contact_view
from products.views import product_detail_view

urlpatterns = [
    path('', home_view, name='home'),
    path('about/', about_view),
    path(r'^tinymce/', include('tinymce.urls')),
This is my change I used to add the tinymce editor into my django application named products.
(django) [mythcat@desk products]$ vim
from django.db import models
from tinymce.models import HTMLField

# Create your models here.
class Product(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField(max_length=120)
#    description = models.TextField(blank=True, null=True)
    description = HTMLField()
    price = models.DecimalField(decimal_places=2, max_digits=1000)
    summary = models.TextField(default='this is cool!')
You can see I used HTMLField and default come is TextField.
The result of this changes can see into the next output:

Fedora 28 : Show a video with Google Apps Script.

It's not a tutorial specific to Fedora's distribution, but many users of this are programmers or developers and its tutorial is very useful.
The tutorial is about how to display a video in a sidebar on a Google document.
I used Google Apps Script to do this.
You can see the tutorial here.

Fedora 28 : Start a service daemon with Python.

In this tutorial I will starting one service using systemctl , python and systemd. First, you need to create a file named testpython.service .
[mythcat@desk system]# cd /etc/systemd/system/
[root@desk system]# vim testpython.service
This file is a configuration file for this service.
Description=Python Service
ExecStart=/usr/bin/python /home/mythcat/
Create the python file for this service. I named .
[root@desk system]# exit
[mythcat@desk system]$ cd ~
[mythcat@desk ~]$ vim

#!/usr/bin/env python

import logging
import time


while True:"Hi")
Change permissions file for this python file and testpython.service, see:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ chmod 764
Because you run this service with systemd then selinux will send you error, fix that:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ chcon -t bin_t ~/
Reload all services and start your service with this commands:
[root@desk system]# systemctl daemon-reload
[root@desk system]# systemctl start  testpython.service
[root@desk system]# systemctl status  testpython.service
● testpython.service - Python Service

Fedora 28 : Using AdonisJs web framework.

AdonisJs is a Node.js web framework with a breath of fresh air and drizzle of elegant syntax on top of it.
We prefer developer joy and stability over anything else.
I tested today this web framework named AdonisJs with Fedora 28.
The main goal was to use MySQL with MariaDB from Fedora 28 distro.
Let's start with the installation of AdonisJs on Fedora 28:
[root@desk mythcat]# npm i --global @adonisjs/cli
/usr/bin/adonis -> /usr/lib/node_modules/@adonisjs/cli/index.js
+ @adonisjs/cli@4.0.7
added 406 packages from 182 contributors in 33.533s
Go to the default user:
[root@desk mythcat]# exit
Create the application , I named myapp:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ adonis new myapp
    _       _             _         _     
   / \   __| | ___  _ __ (_)___    | |___ 
  / _ \ / _` |/ _ \| '_ \| / __|_  | / __|
 / ___ \ (_| | (_) | | | | \__ \ |_| \__ \
/_/   \_\__,_|\___/|_| |_|_|___/\___/|___/

  [1/6] 🔬  Requirements matched [node & npm]
  [2/6] 🔦  Ensuring project directory is clean [myapp]
  [3/6] 📥  Cloned [adonisjs/adonis-fullstack-app]
  [4/6] 📦  Dependencies installed
  [5/6] 📖  Environment variables copied [.env]
  [6/6] 🔑  Key generated [adonis key:generate]

🚀   Successfully created project
👉   Get started with the following commands
Let's test the default myapp with this commands:
$ cd myapp
$ adonis serve --dev

[mythcat@desk ~]$ cd myapp
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ adonis serve --dev

> Watching files for changes...

2018-09-16T09:47:46.799Z - info: serving app on
This is the result of the running myapp on web address:
Let's see the folders and files from AdonisJS:
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ ls
ace  config    node_modules  package-lock.json  server.js
app  database  package.json  public             resources  start
The configuration for web files can be seen here:
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ vim  start/routes.js 
'use strict'

| Routes
| Http routes are entry points to your web application. You can create
| routes for different URL's and bind Controller actions to them.
| A complete guide on routing is available here.

/** @type {import('@adonisjs/framework/src/Route/Manager'} */
const Route = use('Route')

This is telling Adonis that when the root of the site is loaded, render a template/view called welcome.
That welcome template can be found in /resources/views/welcome.edge.
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ cd resources/
[mythcat@desk resources]$ ll
total 0
drwxrwxr-x. 2 mythcat mythcat 26 Sep 16 12:46 views
[mythcat@desk resources]$ cd views/
[mythcat@desk views]$ ll
total 4
-rw-rw-r--. 1 mythcat mythcat 339 Sep 16 12:46 welcome.edge
Let's see the source code of this default webpage:
[mythcat@desk views]$ vim welcome.edge 
For example, if you change into start/routes.js from welcome to index then you need to rename the welcome.edge to index.edge .
About css files you can make changes into public/style.css :
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ cd public/
[mythcat@desk public]$ vim  style.css

@import url('');

html, body {
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;

body {
  font-family: 'Montserrat', sans-serif;
  font-weight: 300;
  background-image: url("/splash.png");
  background-color: #220052;

* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
Using the mysql database is simple. Into Fedora 28 distro you can use mariadb, let's install it.
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ su
[root@desk myapp]# dnf install mariadb mariadb-server
[root@desk myapp]# systemctl start mariadb
[root@desk myapp]# systemctl status mariadb
● mariadb.service - MariaDB 10.2 database server
You need to make changes into .env file into your project folder.
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ vim .env
Use this changes for mariadb:
Install into AdonisJs with this command:
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ adonis install mysql
  [1/1] 📦  Dependencies installed [mysql]
Use this mysql commands to create the database:
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ mysql -u root
Welcome to the MariaDB monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MariaDB connection id is 18
Server version: 10.2.17-MariaDB MariaDB Server

Copyright (c) 2000, 2018, Oracle, MariaDB Corporation Ab and others.

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

MariaDB [(none)]> create database adonis;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

MariaDB [(none)]> exit;
Let's test migration command for files to allow you to create and delete tables.
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ adonis migration:run
migrate: 1503248427885_user.js
migrate: 1503248427886_token.js
Database migrated successfully in 4.11 s
[mythcat@desk myapp]$ adonis make:migration jobs
> Choose an action undefined
✔ create  database/migrations/1537095058367_jobs_schema.js
Now that our database and tables have been created, I can create a model for handling jobs table and associated data.
The next tasks to follow depends by your website:

  • Creating a Model 
  • Creating a Controller 
  • User Authentication

Fedora 28 : LibreOffice remote connection.

I wrote a tutorial about the remote connection in LibreOffice, see this article.
The main problem with LibreOffice development is the changes.
Now the feature Open remote is not working.
The bug is officially recognized and represented, see the page.
They inform us, see comment 31:
John R Mead 2017-12-17 22:43:03 UTC Well, it still doesn't work with LibreOffice Version: (x64); I'm not providing screenshots this time since it's identical in everyway to my previous attempts. At the end of all the copy/pasting between LibreOffice and my browser to get all the relevant permissions, when I finally make the attempt to connect, I get the same message: The specified device is invalid. 

Current system configuration of potentially relevant software: 

Windows 10 Professional (x64) Version 1709 (build 16299.125) 
Java 9.0.1 
Microsoft - OneDrive version (x64) 
LibreOffice Version: (x64)

It's a common practice to see open-source software with bugs, most bugs are already available to users to avoid problems.
Most backup bugs are authentication and changes in development.

Fedora 28 : The Revel framework with golang.

The development team has a very effective text:
A high productivity, full-stack web framework for the Go language.
They used this words:
Revel provides routing, parameter parsing, validation, session/flash, templating, caching, job running, a testing framework, and even internationalization. I tested it yesterday and today I will show you how effective it is.
This framework is very easy to install and use it with Fedora 28.
I could say this is like django framework with the temptation style.
Let's start with a simple example into a folder created by me and named gocode:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ mkdir ~/gocode
[mythcat@desk ~]$ export GOPATH=~/gocode
[mythcat@desk ~]$ echo export GOPATH=$GOPATH >> ~/.bash_profile
[mythcat@desk ~]$ cd gocode/
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ go get
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ ls
pkg  src
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ go get
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ ls
bin  pkg  src
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ export PATH="$PATH:$GOPATH/bin"
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ revel helpDEBUG 19:24:09  revel  server.go:27: arguments by adding nil
~ revel!
usage: revel command [arguments]

The commands are:

    new         create a skeleton Revel application
    run         run a Revel application
    build       build a Revel application (e.g. for deployment)
    package     package a Revel application (e.g. for deployment)
    clean       clean a Revel application's temp files
    test        run all tests from the command-line
    version     displays the Revel Framework and Go version

Use "revel help [command]" for more information.
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ ls
bin  pkg  src
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ revel new myapp
DEBUG 19:38:50  revel  server.go:27: RegisterServerEngine: Registered engine 
~ revel!
Your application is ready:

You can run it with:
   revel run myapp
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ revel run myapp
DEBUG 19:39:15  revel  server.go:27: RegisterServerEngine: Registered engine 
~ revel!
Trying to build with myapp (0x0,0x0)
DEBUG 19:39:15  revel module.go:152: Sorted keys  section=module keys=module.static 
Let's see the source code - in this case the default files: app.go and Index.html .
[mythcat@desk gocode]$ cd src/myapp/app/
[mythcat@desk app]$ ls
controllers  init.go  routes  tmp  views
[mythcat@desk app]$ cd controllers/
[mythcat@desk controllers]$ ls
[mythcat@desk controllers]$ cat app.go 
package controllers

import (

type App struct {

func (c App) Index() revel.Result {
    return c.Render()

[mythcat@desk App]$ cat Index.html 
The cat command will show the source code of Index.html file.
Let's add a golang variable named greeting to app.go and Index.html files:
[mythcat@desk controllers]$ cat app.go 
package controllers

import (

type App struct {

func (c App) Index() revel.Result {
    greeting := "Fedora and revel framework !"
    return c.Render(greeting)
This variable greeting will will be add into file Index.html with tag p after It works!
This is result of two screenshots from start install and after I change with the variable greeting.
