It can become tiresome to precede every docker command with sudo. Adding oneself to the docker group can avoid that.
While for the most part the Gitlab CI Runner documentation is great, there are a few options that aren't as known that are useful for more advanced use or requirements.
While this can be reapplied more broadly, this is specifically about getting the Jenkins agents to run automatically on boot, for both Linux and Windows.
Through just the Virtual Machine Manager UI, there's not a real way to perform plain disk passthrough to a virtual machine. However, to perform a disk passthrough isn't all that hard with just a tweak to a file.
Previously we added tools for code coverage and static analysis via clang-tidy. Now comes the ability to perform better runtime testing through GCC and Clang's sanitizer tools, and integrating them with CMake.
Code coverage gives the ability to determine which sections of code are used, and how much, helping to prevent issues from sections of code that aren't run during tests and thus could potentially fail in production.
The clang tools, clang-format and clang-tidy can be immensly useful, both for software development on local machines and as passes in a CI pipeline. This is especially true when they are integrated into a CMake script, where new targets 'format' and 'tidy' can be exist.
One of the most valuable basic types in computer science is the floating point type. The float is that allows for a massive range of storable values, at the cost of some precision after the value becomes large enough, due to the fact that floats can only store ~7.2 decimal digits. Thus, if we wish to keep a certain fixed amount or precision, we need to either put coded limits around the use of particular floats, or just create our own fixed point type.
