Discussing GitHub Integration, DigitalOcean Configuration, and Custom Web Components Development
The State Changers discussed the process of their work with domain issues related to DigitalOcean, where there was a delay in DNS registration. A member was trying to personalize domain names using DNS settings which lead to a discussion about DNS databases and records. They also discussed the usage of Railway for deploying code, using Docker and managing environment variables.
WeWeb's support for external components and its integration method using configuration files from GitHub repositories were covered. However, the State Changers noted that WeWeb's documentation could be improved, especially for self-hosting features.
They discussed strategies for code deployment, advocating for letting external services manage as many concerns as possible. The topic of managing credentials for authentication was briefly discussed, indicating this will be a future challenge.
One participant was instructed on using GitHub to download files, commit, and push updates to GitHub. The group discussed using command-line interfaces versus the GitHub desktop client, with the latter being recommended for ease of use and better integration with GitHub.
Another participant encountered an error when failing to push changes after committing them in GitHub Desktop. They were given advice on how to avoid and resolve conflicts in the future. The meeting concluded with reminders about future office hours and further discussions.
Key technologies mentioned include: DigitalOcean, Docker, WeWeb, Railway, GitHub, and DNS.
