Weekly Check-In #5

Published: 07/04/2023

What did I do this week?

This week I worked mostly on the docker task. I wrote several sections in README.md to explain how it the image can be used in different ways. I added several features to entry.sh to allow configuration via environment variables and also to allow using borgmatic subcommands directly. 

My commits these week were low compared to previous ones but I learned a lot. I did get sidetrack as I tried to create several of my images to learn Dockerfile and tried various deployment using GH Actions and deployment tools which costed me a lot of hours.

What's coming up next?

I plan to work further on this task but I've also picked up an old PR for borgmatic which was pending. There are several merge conflicts due to new changes which I'm resolving so I can get back to writing actual code.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I did. I couldn't figure out how to allow user to directly use borgmatic subcommands with docker-compose. See this comment.
