An Open Source Hardware Personal Computer Made in Silicon Valley, USA ?

I am on a mission to find an Intel style, open-source hardware, personal computer, made in Silicon Valley, USA.

I want to run Ubuntu or Redhat and have the mainline device drivers support for commercial peripherals.

I do not want Raspberry PI or Beaglebone, I want mainline PC architecture.

I do not want a Maker gadget or a DIY toy.

I know there is the high end Open Compute project, and that is for BIG INTERNET companies and government systems.

I asked Scott McNeally via Twitter.

I asked the question on Can I buy an open-source hardware computer assembled and manufactured in Silicon Valley? Quora.

I know of the Minnow Board project, which is an Intel project and was manufactured by a Texas company.

But, I want a Silicon Valley made personal computer. Not assembled or designed in Silicon Valley. But made in the Silicon Valley, USA.

I want to build an open source hardware and software commercial project on such a computer.

Any leads, email me at [email protected]

Composer, source code from private Gitlab and public Github for Sage 9 and Roots for WordPress Plugin & Theme Development

I want to split out my custom plugins and themes from my Roots repo so I can make it private, I just dont trust Ansible Vault enough, and there is always the chance of forgetting to encrypt with the key and committing the secrets and putting it into the git history.

I also want to manage the THEMES as well as the plugins to the git repo’s via Composer and GIT i.e. gitlab and doing this was surprisingly complicated and not well documented.

Bedrock i.e. site folder composer.json

my composer.json folder for Bedrock, the site scaffolding, looks like this

Deploying a site

every time you update, you need to commit all the repos, themes, plugins, and the roots root folder, if there are changes in references you need to run composer update and update the locks


composer update
git commit -am "source and ref"
git push
ansible-playbook deploy.yml -e "site=openplanetculture.com env=production" -vvv --ask-vault-pass

Live Reload

By default, Phoenix runs Live Reload and we can make changes to templates, code, styles, scripts, on the fly.

Change Homepage

Now, we change the homepage index template on this on the path

trumpsnewdealcom/lib/trumpsnewdealcom/web/templates/page/index.html.eex

New Style

Strip out the Phoenix default CSS from Bootstrap 3 from trumpsnewdealcom/assets/css/phoenix.css

Now we have a clean slate

Bootswatch 4

Now, I want to strip out Bootstrap 3 and replace with Bootswatch 4 and Bootstrap 4, we will customize from these.

Node Packages

We update package.json which manages our node_modules at trumpsnewdealcom/assets/package.json to include Bootswatch 4 from a branch on Github, its not on npm registry yet.

our /Users/devekko/Infra/trumpsnewdealcom/assets/package.json is now

Copy Asset Files

app.scss

We now need to connect compile and connect to SCSS

we rename app.css to app.scss


/* This file is for your main application css. */
@import "css/bootswatch/_variables.scss";
@import "bootstrap";
@import "css/bootswatch/_bootswatch.scss";

Brunch config

Thanks to this gist I learned how to configure Brunch for Bootstrap 4 on Phoenix


exports.config = {
// See http://brunch.io/#documentation for docs.
files: {
javascripts: {
joinTo: "js/app.js"

},
stylesheets: {
joinTo: "css/app.css"
},
templates: {
joinTo: "js/app.js"
}
},

conventions: {
assets: /^(static)/
},

// Phoenix paths configuration
paths: {
// Dependencies and current project directories to watch
watched: ["static", "css", "js", "vendor"],
// Where to compile files to
public: "../priv/static"
},

// Configure your plugins
plugins: {
babel: {
// Do not use ES6 compiler in vendor code
ignore: [/vendor/]
},
sass: {
options: {
includePaths: ["node_modules/bootstrap/scss"], // Tell sass-brunch where to look for files to @import
precision: 8 // Minimum precision required by bootstrap-sass
}
},
},

modules: {
autoRequire: {
"js/app.js": ["js/app"]
}
},

npm: {
enabled: true,
globals: { // Bootstrap's JavaScript requires both '$' and 'jQuery' in global scope
$: 'jquery',
jQuery: 'jquery',
bootstrap: 'bootstrap' // Require Bootstrap's JavaScript globally
}
}
};

Bootswatch

I manually copy the Bootswatch folders across from node_modules to the assets folders.

It is possible to use npm postinstall cp -ar type solutions, but this becomes complex as I want to strip out some files like gulp build files and dist etc etc. There is no good way to do this imho and its seems to be confirmed by Cloudless Studio.

I also want to modify the Materia Bootswatch theme and I want to keep it simple. I struggled with this for a day and realized a simple copy and paste was best.

app.scss looks like


/* This file is for your main application css. */
@import "css/bootswatch/_variables.scss";
@import "bootstrap";
@import "css/bootswatch/_bootswatch.scss";

and my css assets folder, Bootstrap is in the node_modules folder and is configured via Brunch and compiled via SASS Brunch


tree css
css
├── app.scss
├── bootswatch
│   ├── LICENSE
│   ├── _bootswatch.scss
│   └── _variables.scss
└── phoenix.css

now our site has Bootstrap 4 / Bootswatch 4 styles

Kitchen Sink

To conclude this part of the project, I add a kitchen-sink page from Bootswatch so I can compare and contrast the fidelity of my build, check for missing JS and CSS etc etc.

I add trumpsnewdealcom/lib/trumpsnewdealcom/web/templates/page/kitchen.html.eex with HTML from Bootswatch

Page Controller updated

I add a new atom :kitchen for our kitchen sink


def kitchen(conn, _params) do
render conn, "kitchen.html"
end

and in the router trumpsnewdealcom/lib/trumpsnewdealcom/web/router.ex

I add a new route


scope "/", Trumpsnewdealcom.Web do
pipe_through :browser

get "/", PageController, :index
get "/kitchen", PageController, :kitchen

end

I copy the tag contents from https://bootswatch.com/4-alpha/materia/ and paste into kitchen.index.eex and we now we have a kitchen sink at http://0.0.0.0:4000/kitchen

Change Brand Primary

And of course, to make myself feel like a talented designer I change brand-primary

GOTCHA: and for some reason, I have to stop and restart phoenix server for the css to refresh, no doubt a setting in brunch. Will try to reproduce this and publish a repo.

stay tuned as I build out the game

ALSO, PLEASE DONT FLAME ME, I didn’t vote for Trump, but I do think there is a roll-back of the FDR New Deal, hence, Trumps New Deal

Semantic UI SASS (or NOT) on Sage 9 dev

Part 3 of a series, lets get Semantic UI Sass port working

yarn add semantic-ui-sass

yarn will download semantic-ui-sass from the npm registry and update our package.json

✨ Done in 6.26s.

now I run yarn start and get errors, its not looking good for Semantic UI and Sage, especially from a, lets get the site up quickly perspective, so I will roll back to Bootstrap 4.

Some factors

  1. Semantic UI has site templates which requires LESS, apparently SASS doesn’t do import of variables
  2. Roots uses SASS, and so I would either have to use SASS and LESS in Roots or use the Semantic UI Sass port
  3. Semantic UI Sass may or may not be feature complete
  4. Sage imports Bootstrap and so I would need to manually work through and compare and contrast, matching Bootstrap to Semantic UI
  5. Semantic UI Sass doesn’t have the variable for colors or palettes and colors are mixed into the CSS/SCSS, this is a real limitation and for me is a deal killer
  6. perhaps the composer Sage project setup option without a style at all would be better, but there would still be questions about Semantic UI itself and especially the fact that there is no official SASS port now, or possibly ever
  7. Sage webpack config would need to be changed to run LESS, probably not too difficult, but possibly time consuming

so, its a rabbit hole of complexity and something I don’t want, so its back to the default, Bootstrap 4.

I really love the idea of Semantic UI and haven’t given up on it and will come back to again, but right now it looks like I will stick with Bootstrap 4

Maybe will try to come back to Semantic UI LESS on Sage after building a site with the default Bootstrap 4.

Semantic UI and Sage on WordPress

Sage 9 dev Bootstrap 4

Following on from Semantic UI and Roots lets follow-up and get the SASS port of Semantic UI working with and customized into something like a theme.

Baseline with Bootstrap

Since I am new to Sage and Roots and Trellis, and also Facebook’s new npm client called yarn lets get a baseline theme working with the default Bootstrap 4.

Sage 9 dev docs

main.css is not working, so we need to dig into the Sage 9 docs

  1. Theme installation
  2. Theme set-up

ok, to get styles.css rendering properly into into dist folder we need to update sage/main.css to openplanetculture.com/main.css in src/setup.php


add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', function () {
wp_enqueue_style('openplanetculture.com/main.css', asset_path('styles/main.css'), false, null);
wp_enqueue_script('openplanetculture.com/main.js', asset_path('scripts/main.js'), ['jquery'], null, true);
}, 100);

browsersync and sage 9 dev

now when we update variables such and brand color in openplanetculture.com/site/web/app/themes/openplanetculture.com/assets/styles/common/_variables.scss

we get a change in color instantly !

that’s our baseline with Bootstrap 4

Sage 9 dev Bootstrap 4
Sage 9 dev Bootstrap 4

Part 3

Finally, Semantic UI SASS, working on this now

WordPress Roots.io and Semantic UI Sass

After building a custom theme with Understrap and Material Design for Bootstrap 4 I wanted to quickly, i.e. within a few days, build a WordPress site using the Roots.io framework and Semantic UI.

Semantic UI has a community ownership model i.e. its not Facebook, or Google or Twitter or Microsoft and has ports into NPM, gems, Elm, Ember etc

Assign Domain OpenPlanetCulture.com

The website domain will be Open Planet Culture, openplanetculture.com. The idea for this project is a site about the planet Earth, but without the New Age baggage of Gaia Hypothesis and hopefully more accessible to the science on the subject. I want to try to use language that bridges the left-right culture-wars divide on subjects such as climate change etc. We assign the domain in Dynadot to Cloudflare and set-up DNSSEC.

Development Set-up on Mac Sierra

Install Trellis, the Ansible devops based toolchain. Locally for development it uses Vagrant and remotely on production uses Ansible.

We install Virtualbox, the Virtualbox extensions pack and Vagrant, direct from the vendor.

WordPress building on (a) Trellis

Trellis a dev-prod 12 factor app style toolchain.

We need to install Ansible which first requires PIP on Mac.


sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install ansible

we also need Vagrant plugins


vagrant plugin install vagrant-bindfs
vagrant plugin install vagrant-hostmanager

we change the to Project directory, make our project folder


cd ~/Projects
mkdir www.openplanetculture.com
cd www.openplanetculture.com/

and now clone from Github and remove the .git folder, we dont need these .git history files

git clone --depth=1 [email protected]:roots/trellis.git && rm -rf trellis/.git

Bedrock a boilerplate base for WordPress site development

We now git clone Bedrock which contains boilerplate and modern development tools such as Facebook’s Nodejs client Yarn.


git clone --depth=1 [email protected]:roots/bedrock.git site && rm -rf site/.git

Next, we use Ansible Galaxy to install our Roots.io ecosystem roles, which are in turned sourced from the Ansible ecosystem of community roles.


cd trellis && ansible-galaxy install -r requirements.yml

install worked fine

WordPress Site development

Now we have our fundament, we have our Roots, our Trellis and our Bedrock, lets build a site.

According to the excellent Roots docs, the “site” is the basic unit of organization and a server can host 1 or more, sites.

This is excellent !

We control the sites using Ansible Group Variables and other settings, so our code is our infrastructure.

Site and Secrets organization

Sounds a bit like a spy novel, but instead we have sites defined in
www.openplanetculture.com/trellis/group_vars/development/wordpress_sites.yml

and the sites secrets in www.openplanetculture.com/trellis/group_vars/development/vault.yml

Personally, I am not convinced Ansible Vault is not a risk, but its widely used and we will go with it for now. Its certainly better than clear text passwords.

Lets generate some passwords using command line pwgen, or alternatively, my preference Password Safe.


brew install pwgen

and set them in our secrets (which I changed after publishing this blog post!)


vault_mysql_root_password: uoquiGh8Sego2hee

vault_wordpress_sites:
openplanetcuture.com:
admin_password: admin
env:
db_password: oonaNgo5eeP4eich

Notice, also that Roots.io preferences openplanetculture.com as canonical, NOT www.openplanetculture.com. This is actually not recommended by Cloudflare, but let’s go with this for now, we “should” be able to just change config and it will work, but for now, lets stay close to defaults so we don’t trip ourselves up.

There are loads of Ansible settings that we can use as we progress.

Complete Local Development Setup

We complete our local dev setup from the detailed official docs.

We check-list ourselves and looks good, so lets run vagrant up, I’ll grab a coffee and expect to do some further trouble-shooting. Vagrant rarely works the first time imho….

Dev site installed

Now I can visit the site on http://openplanetculture.dev

Open Planet Culture DEV site
Open Planet Culture DEV site

Create a new theme with Sage

Sage is the custom starter theme and its used by some interesting sites, including Data.gov.


cd /Users/devekko/Projects/openplanetculture.com/site/web/app/themes

lets install Sage master (9-dev) and we first need Composer installed globally


php -r "copy('https://getcomposer.org/installer', 'composer-setup.php');"\nphp -r "if (hash_file('SHA384', 'composer-setup.php') === '55d6ead61b29c7bdee5cccfb50076874187bd9f21f65d8991d46ec5cc90518f447387fb9f76ebae1fbbacf329e583e30') { echo 'Installer verified'; } else { echo 'Installer corrupt'; unlink('composer-setup.php'); } echo PHP_EOL;"\nphp composer-setup.php\nphp -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');"
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

now we install using Composer and the interactive prompts

Buy the Book

There is lots more about Sage, and the best way is buy the book and support the project!

Sage 9-dev with yarn npm package manager


cd /Users/devekko/Projects/openplanetculture.com/site/web/app/themes/openplanetculture.com
brew install zsh
brew install yarn

now we use yarn as a replace npm client, no more nom install


openplanetculture.com yarn
yarn install v0.21.3

now we run yarn run start


yarn run start
yarn run v0.21.3
$ webpack --hide-modules --watch --config assets/build/webpack.config.js

Webpack is watching the files…

[BS] [HTML Injector] Running...
[BS] Proxying: http://openplanetculture.dev
[BS] Access URLs:


   Local: http://localhost:3000
External: http://10.1.10.51:3000

      UI: http://localhost:3001

UI External: http://10.1.10.51:3001

now we have our SASS compiled into CSS and we have the basic setup for theming with Sage 9-dev and Trellis and Roots

YAY !

Adding Semantic UI

I want to try Semantic UI and use yarn


openplanetculture.com yarn add semantic-ui-sass
