New Drupal Theme - CorporateClean

It's pitiful and downright disgraceful to have such a neglected website!  No updates since Nov 2017!  Well at least I did something tonight.  

The CSS and JS files were not being served because of HTTPS mixed content errors.  In excusable!  

Back up and running with a very slick and outdated CorporateClean theme.  Not my favorite, but acceptible and simple CSS.  


The future is Drupal 8 - or BackDrop.  But When?

Chromium PPA

Install latest Chromium browser with this PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:saiarcot895/chromium-dev
sudo apt update
sudo apt install chromium-browser


Install Docker Compose

Let's get started and use instructions from here:

Install via Curl

curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.8.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Set to executable

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose


docker-compose --version


Install Docker

Start with Instructions here:


  • Update repos and add certs
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates
  • Add the new GPG key.
    $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-keys 58118E89F3A912897C070ADBF76221572C52609D

Committing file deletions with GIT

When you are working with a GIT repo, and you need to delete files, the best way to do that is to use a GIT command directly.  You can delete individual files:

git rm that/filename.txt

And you can delete whole folders too:

git rm -rf this/here/folder

But what to do when an automated process deletes file for you?  Now GIT reports a long list of deleted files, but there is no way to add that that change - actually REMOVE that change in an automated way.  Or is there?
