How to host your Python 3 Flask MVP with Supervisor on Ubuntu Server 16.04

Due to its minimalistic design, the Python Flask framework is ideal for building the web server layer of minimal viable products (MVP) to validate customers’ needs. However, development work is just one part of the user validation efforts. To ensure that our customer can access our Flask MVP and provide feedback as and when they are available, we will need to get it running with as a server daemon.

Supervisor is a convenient tool for running applications as a server daemon.

This post documents the steps that I took to host a Python 3 Flask MVP with Supervisor on an Ubuntu Server 16.04 instance.

How I setup a CCTV camera with Raspberry Pi Zero W and motionEyeOS image for home surveillance

When the Raspberry Pi Zero W was launched, I didn’t think twice before ordering one. Compared to the Raspberry Pi Zero, the Raspberry Pi Zero W comes with WiFi. This meant that I can use my new Raspberry Pi Zero W to replace my Raspberry Pi 3 CCTV camera for home surveillance and use the more powerful Raspberry Pi 3 for other projects.

This post documents how I setup my Raspberry Pi Zero W as a CCTV camera using the MotionEyeOS image.

Setting up a free CA signed SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt for my LEMP server on my Raspberry Pi 3 with an Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 image to secure my WordPress site

After setting up a LEMP web server on Raspberry Pi 3 with an Ubuntu Server 15.10.3 image to host my new WordPress website, a good colleague of mine recommended me to try implementing a free certified SSL certificate. The intelligent and generous folks from Let’s Encrypt had created a free and open Certificate Authority and an automated workflow for websites to generate certified SSL certificates for serving trusted and encrypted communication.

Since, there is no cost involved in implementing the SSL certificate, I went on to try and implement one on the Nginx server on my Raspberry Pi 3.

This post documents my process on setting up a Let’s Encrypt certified SSL certificate for my Nginx server on my Raspberry Pi 3.
