This is a quick, practical guide to get you started. A common issue I notice in projects that use Dockerfile's is that they don't easily run on developer machines and don't work across operating systems and IDEs (Visual Studio Code, vs. PyCharm, vs. Command line).

Motivation 💪

  • You have been using Obsidian to store your notes. I highly recommend it if you don't - in that case, come back to this page later.
  • Your current solution to write notes is to use a separate app or separate Obsidian Vault on your phone. After you reach your computer, you manually copy and paste data into your primary Obsidian Vault. I previously used Google Keep for temporary notes, which were moved into Obsidian Vault when I found the time.

Outcome

By the end of this post, you'll be able to run: ssh $machine_name from anywhere in the internet-connected planet, using SSH keys. It is free and requires no future maintainance. This guide uses Cloudflare Tunnel, a service by Cloudflare with a free-tier. It will filter traffic to your machines through Cloudflare's network, including authenticating you. Because of this, your machines won't directly be exposed to threat actors and "1337 haxors".

  • Your speakers aren't bluetooth
  • You don't want to use your headphones

    • I want to share my music with others
  • Your macOS is connected via AUX cable (or USB-C/HDMI) to speakers, so let's use them instead

Being cross-platform, Flutter abstracts away Platform APIs, such as iOS, Android, Web, macOS, Windows and Linux. However, there are platform specific differences which will affect how you implement features or develop package plugins.

For example, on iOS, you need to implement didReceive(_:completionHandler:) in your app's main entrypoint (AppDelegate), where as on Android, you need to declare a Service or Broadcast Receiver in the AndroidManifest.xml file, and override FirebaseMessagingService onMessageReceived method.

I work in a team that manages far more software libraries than there are people. I wanted to raise my concern about standardisation across projects/ libraries (e.g. readmes, tools, github workflow file naming conventions). For example, synchronizing all the projects to have:
