My Boring Yet Modern Web Starter Stack

I like to use the same stack again and again. It makes me productive, makes code less buggy, and builds knowledge over time. Unless there is a real need like unmaintained software or a different kind of application or unless I am going to build a Facebook or Google, I rarely change things in this stack. Even if I am going to build Facebook, I would start here and then adjust as it grows, just like Facebook did with it’s stack.

Karate Mocks on Google CloudRun

I have written mock features in Karate for integration testing. Recently I wanted to run them centrally somewhere so all my testing infra can use the same set of Mocks. I wanted an easy way to launch it and maintenance-free. So I tried it with CloudRun, which can run any stateless web service. One needs to provide a container to it. That’s all.
