How to Install SVN Server on Debian 9

/ Category: Uncategorized / Comments: None

In this article, you will find all the steps that you need to take in order to set up the Subversion (svn) server on your Debian 9 Cloud VPS.

Subversion is an open source version control system which helps you keep track of files and folders collection. Whenever you do some change, such as adding or deleting a file or a folder that is managed with Subversion, these changes are committed to your Subversion repository and as a result, a new revision in your repository is created and it reflects these changes. You can, at any time you wish, go back and check the contents of the revisions made previously, and even revert back to a previous snapshot. This makes developing projects much easier to follow in a team, as well as making it safer in case a mistake is made.

How to Install Yarn on Ubuntu 16.04

/ Category: Tutorials / Comments: None

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on an Ubuntu 16.04 Cloud VPS, as well as go over some of the basics with using Yarn.

Yarn is a Javascript package manager, serving as an alternative to NPM. It is an open-source project and was built by a team at Facebook. There are many advantages when using Yarn, such as:

  • Offline Installation
  • Faster download, packages are installed in parallel
  • Support for multiple registries

As you can see, the interesting feature is the offline installation. Once you have installed a package, it will be cached and we can create another project from scratch without being connected to the internet, which in turn will save our bandwidth usage.
Usually, a project requires some dependencies and every time we install them to start a project, the “npm install” command would consume your bandwidth. When using Yarn, the download is done just once. Let’s begin installing Yarn.
