VividCortex's Open-Source Documentation

We were inspired by this recent post on CircleCI's blog, highlighting the many virtues of well-written and accessible documentation. Just as significantly, they point out the deeper value of making that documentation open-source. Documentation is where an engineering team can really elucidate its ideas and the execution that makes those ideas function; as CircleCI explains, it can be an invaluable resource for newcomers and veteran users alike. That sort of community inclusion is something we strongly agree with at VividCortex.

Nobody Loves Graphite Anymore

Many of our customers use Graphite, and I don’t think anyone would argue with me when I say it’s probably the most commonly used time series database in the DevOps community. Not only does it have a huge installed base, it also has a robust community of advocates and developers, including Jason Dixon, who’s writing a book on monitoring with Graphite. (We featured Jason in our Brainiac Corner a while ago.)

Authentication with Middleware using Siesta

We recently added a token-based authentication example to the Siesta repository that provides an excellent starting point for building authenticated APIs using our lightweight HTTP handler library for Go. This example, modeled after our own internal API services, demonstrates features and practices that we’ve developed and found useful after using Siesta in production for many months.

VividCortex php-recaptcha-validator

We recently updated our angular-recaptcha to use the new Google’s simplified captcha.

Validations must be done server side, so one of our brainiacs created php-recaptcha-validator as a companion to angular-recaptcha. You can do this in whatever language you prefer; this is an option for PHP and is MIT licensed.

The README file contains the simple steps to install and use it.

To install, simply add your project requirement using composer

You will need to instantiate a new validator with your secret key provided by Google.

$validator = new Validator($secret);

Then, you can move on to validating responses. The response and the client’s IP are required.

// Returns TRUE or FALSE
$result = $validator->validate($response, $clientIp);

As always, we welcome comments and contributions.
