Fix Terminal no longer uses keychain in MacOS Sierra

Since Sierra, I got prompted for my ssh key password everytime. After digging a bit, it seems Apple just changes it recently.

On macOS, specifies whether the system should search for passphrases in the user’s keychain when attempting to use a particular key. When the passphrase is provided by the user, this option also specifies whether the passphrase should be stored into the keychain once it has been verified to be correct. The argument must be ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The default is ‘no’.

In order to fix this, you just have to enable UseKeychain for every hosts by adding these lines into your .ssh/config file

Host *
   AddKeysToAgent yes
   UseKeychain yes
   IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Alternatively, you can add ssh-add -A into your .bashrc or .zshrc.

Why we choose Kubernetes over ECS

Bring in the Goddamn Adults Already

Time and time again, the young startup promotes their longest-tenured young engineer to become CTO of their 20-something startup. And it makes sense on the surface, because it’s their “best” engineer. And why not? They’ve been there for so long that they know the system they’ve built more than anyone else.
But now they have two problems: they lose their “best” engineer, and on top of that, they gain what’s probably a shit manager.

Sharing secret data in Kubernetes

  • I’ve seen people bundle config file within source code.
  • I’ve seen people bundle config when building Docker images.


Just use secrets / environment variables.

Here is a very detail tutorial on how to share secret data in Kubernetes.

Using squid proxy to bypass 3rd party API IP whitelisting

At work, I have to work with many 3rd party supplier API which requires IP whitelisting. This is becoming an issue when we need to autoscale using multiple Kubernetes nodes.

There are several ways to deal with this

  • Use NAT gateway to forward all outgoing traffic to the gateway
  • Use a proxy like Squid

I went with Squid since it’s much easier. Tinkering with network setting is nightmare for me.

You can follow the tutorial here on Google Cloud Documentation and then export these environment variables below in your Kubernetes nodes / Docker container.

export http_proxy="http://<proxy-ip>:3128"
export https_proxy="http://<proxy-ip>:3128"
export ftp_proxy="http://<proxy-ip>:3128"
export no_proxy=",metadata,metadata.google.internal"

You can verify if it’s working properly by checking the public IP address of the node afterward by curl ifconfig.me.

Also, package like request does respect HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY so you probably don’t have to make any changes to the existing code base.
