What is Istio?

LXer - Fri, 2018-09-21 11:56
One of the key metrics or performance indicator of a microservices software architecture and environment is lead time (the amount of time it takes to get from idea to production). Many things have an impact on lead time, such as decision-making time, how quickly the code can be implemented, testing, continuous integration, etc.[This is part one of my ten-part Introduction to Istio series, originally published on Red Hat Developers.]read more

Is there a linux shell with structured data?

Reddit - Fri, 2018-09-21 09:54

I spend most of my time in the shell, using bash to manipulate the file system and run programs. I love the power of piping several small tools together to create complex behaviors with a few keystrokes.

But one of the things the bothers me is that everything is text. I know, it's the best supported format, but it's also extremely limited in its capacity to carry data.

I could use an actual programming language like Python, of course, and I'm often forced to, even for rather simple tasks. But what I would really like is a shell that supports structured data (say, like json) as the basic medium of communication between programs, but still gives me the brevity and simplicity of a shell.

For example: ls can return a list of dictionaries, each one representing a file. It will have a to_text() method that prints it nicely with colors and everything, but I can also choose to iterate over the files, without having to worry about spaces, null-terminations, etc.

Is there such a project? I'm fine with early stage code, I might even contribute. I'm just tired of linuxing like it's the 70s.

(inb4 anyone suggests fish, xonsh or zsh, they're great but not what I'm looking for)

Windows Studio/ Professional Software

Reddit - Fri, 2018-09-21 08:25

Is it possible to run Adobe, FL Studio, CAD, or Maya on Linux? Or are those only for Mac/PC? I love Linux and I can't give up that software and I can't be wrong if I think it's possible to run anything through it because it just doesn't make sense to me if you couldn't. So many people use it professionally... It's on phones, it must be possible...I get more done on Linux until it's time to whip out the real ammo. No virtual box.
