dragon.style update process thread 

Hello stylish dragons! It's update time. I will be working on this throughout today, and we may have some downtime.

Things have started off promisingly, I got 3.4.6 running on my Mac without any visits to dependency hell. Seriously sometimes I have to spend an annoying amount of time just getting the same code that's on the server up and running on my machine.

oh hello progress bar to install XCode command line tools on this new machine, thanks for starting at 23h like you always do, very helpful

(it is currently at 4min and dropping, before going up to 20min, but I sure wish Apple would amend all their installing-shit-from-the-internet progress bars to at least say "* probably much less, we're still getting everything set up" in those cases)

anyway time to play with the cat I guess

Figure 1: Shemp.

Who looks larger in person, these photos make him look a bit kittenish but he is actually a fine young man of about three years!

ugh how do I make homebrew ditch all the old Intel binaries carried across from my old machine and recompile everything for ARM

aha, think I found it: database.guide/fix-cannot-inst

"just reinstall homebrew", awesome, thanks for providing an elegant path for a migration you can expect 100% of your Apple users to be taking, homebrew guys *sigh*

.... hasn't worked yet, libffi seems to be my new nemesis, replacing charlock_holmes

anyway time for a break, I need to shower and get ready for a previously scheduled appointment

Thinking of trying to stick my local dev instance into Docker. Have discovered that all guides for using Docker that existed back when the docs were on Github are completely gone from docs.joinmastodon.org. I shudder to imagine how many collective hours of dependency hell this choice has already created for new admins who just brought up 3.whatever, never mind how much dependency hell it will create in the future.

Okay, I am back from my errand (and from grabbing a turnover at the 130-year-old wikinotable bakery a few blocks form my place) and I am watching my first attempt to get Docker running on my local dev copy of dragon.style. If this works then perhaps I will finally be done with dependency hell forever.

Okay this feels like progress, I am watching three of the five processes that make up A Mastodon repeatedly restart themselves in the Docker app's window. I am pretty sure this is because the database is completely uninitialized. Now to find a copy of the Docker setup docs, since the Masto project, in their infinite wisdom, has completely removed any mention of Docker from the official docs site.

@anthracite If you have a database dump from the existing system, you should be able to import them to the new one.

I'd need to see your docker-compose.yaml to see what's what in your setup.

@anthracite If you are trying to do this off of the main branch, and didn't check out the tagged version, it can have...issues...as well. It may be worth a *gasp* call/chat after I have dinner to go over it and see if I can help since I've been running docker since day 1.

WHAT IS VOICE OMFG

I've been running the one on the server in docker since forever, I'm just trying to cram the local copy on my Mac in there too now so I can leave Dependency Hell forever.

@anthracite I don't know if this is useful, but this script keeps me from having to build shit over and over again.

@ksonney

I think this may be useful for the future once I get my local copy containerized!
