At Auth0 we develop a lot of sample applications to show developers how to use our various features inside their applications. These applications invariably require some sort of configuration which is read from a file. For our Angular Quickstarts for example, there is a file called auth0-variables.ts.example which contains an example of the settings required for the application to run. When a user downloads or forks this example to run it locally, they need to simply rename that file to auth0-variables.
Recently I had to configure a build on Jenkins for the work I am doing at Auth0 and ran into an issue with a shell script that did not want to execute and failed with a “Permission Denied” error. Being new to the Linux world I reached out to a colleague and it turned out the solution was an easy one. It is new for me, so I am sharing it so it can maybe help you in the future.
Microsoft recently made Git source control available as an alternative source control provider on Team Foundation Service. I decided to move my existing private repositories from Github to TFS. This video describes the process.
