Installing libnl3 and py80211(nl) on debian

So, I recently needed to install a full, lastest version of libnl from their repository, so I could install py80211.

I was actually looking for the py80211 version I collabore with (https://code.google.com/p/py80211/) wich is liblorcon-related , but I ended up finding py80211, wich is libnl-related. At the end, I didn’t use that py80211 version, but I’ll still document here how to

Here are the steps to install them:

apt-get install automake autoconf libtool git bison flex swig
git clone https://github.com/thom311/libnl
sh autogen.sh
sh configure
make
make install

Ok, that was easy!
Now we only need to clone and test the sample from the py80211 repository:

git clone https://github.com/arend/py80211
cd py80211
python setup.py install

Voilá. There you have it.

Best wordpress developer setup ever

I’ve recently started working on a complex wordpress-based project, so I needed a full-stack solution that would help me do my work in the most optimized way.

There’s where I stumbled upon Bedrock, from the guys behind the famous theme roots.io and I’ve got to say I was pretty amazed.

Bedrock dudes have managed to:

  • Keep a codebase wordpress-clean (separated app from wordpress core)
  • Make me know about the possiblity to install wordpress plugins via composer
  • You can even install bedrock itself through composer
  • Ansible & Vagrant machines!

I’ve already used it on two more wordpress sites and It’s probably going to become a regular topic in my blog posts.
