November 10, 2017Categories: IT, Tutorial
In the previous post , I've described how to build an image when you're behind a proxy. Now, if your container needs access to the internet for e.g. downloading python dependencies, you'll need to give it explicitly. The way to do it is via -e parameter (environment) of docker run . You can…

September 21, 2017Categories: Software, Tutorial
The other day I had to install Docker at work, aka behind a corporate proxy (on Windows 8). While the docker installer is stand-alone and all is good, dealing with the VM is a different matter... The problem popped up when I tried to create a Django image and pip install failed miserably. To get…

October 26, 2016Categories: Software, Tutorial
TL;DR: There's no easy way to create a proxy :) I've tried for a while to build a way to request something through a proxy, for testing an emulated android app. The solution came from Octavian who kindly provided me a snippet to run once per app lifetime. It tackles the problem from two fronts…

Set Different Gradle Configurations

September 19, 2016Categories: IT, Tutorial
TL;DR : create a global gradle.properties file (in <HOME>/.gradle or GRADLE_USER_HOME if defined). Place there the system specific configuration. The other day I had the unpleasant surprise that Android Studio replicated my proxy settings into gradle.properties and got committed to Git…

June 18, 2015Category: Software
The recent updates in Android Studio eliminate the possibility of passing JVM arguments to gradle. That's quite unfortunate because I quite liked my solution and now I was getting a (not) nice Connection refused message... So I had to find a different solution. Environment Variable As always…

January 26, 2015Category: IT
Apparently, productivity increases when you listen to (the right type of) music. So, my medicine these days is Spotify. To make your proxy woes go away, try to use https://play.spotify.com/?http=1 . If that doesn't work, you're out of luck.

Gradle and Proxy Authentication in Android Studio

July 28, 2014Category: Software
Update : This is obsolete as Android Studio is going to eliminate JVM arguments for gradle. See this post for a more future-proof approach . The other day I did an exercise to install Android Studio ("AS" henceforth) (0.8.4 at the moment of writing) and create a project with gradle in an…
