NuuksioCon 2014

It is in the past again. This year we played only the diceless Stalker roleplaying game. We also planned to play the last part of Babylon5 game started two years ago, but sadly it got cancelled at the last minute. The card gaming got more airtime! So the gaming continued with Bang! and Bilekuosi, with a new addition of a wonderful game called Cards Against Humanity. Based on the cards and amount played. We really are horrible people!

Clojure compojure app in Heroku

Tried out today the clojure compojure app deployment into cloud service. Deployment didn’t went as smoothly as one might have expected:

  1. By default it wanted to use Java6 instead of Java7.
  2. App didn’t start.
  3. It wanted to use older (< 2.0) Leiningen by default.
  4. App was oddly named in the heroku’s end,  and resulted non-descriptive domain url.

These all were easy to fix:

  1. Add a new file into your project’s root:
     echo "java.runtime.version=1.7" >
  2. Add a new file into your project’s root:
     echo "web: lein ring server-headless $PORT" > Procfile
  3. Add into project.clj file:
    :min-lein-version "2.0.0"
  4. You can simply rename the app through the heroku dashboard  and app’s settings pane, with rename functionality. Note that the heroku git repository name also changes, so you have to manually change it into your local project’s ./git/config-file so you can continue pushing into production.

Weather Forecaster Statistics

As a coder, one sometimes wonders if anybody uses your online service. Therefore, when Weather Forecaster went online on this site, I put a simple statistics collector for the ‘spell castings’ of it. Here are the results for year 2013, and it clearly shows that there are some users.
Forecasts 2013
Note, that no data is collected about the actual users. So there is no data of how many unique users there are, or where they hail from. I am happy, if there is even one user!
