  • Subtitling the Croatian Series "Bitange i Princeze" with autosub

    I always missed subtitles for the Croatian TV series Bitange i princeze, because the actors speak pretty fast. Recently, I found out that Google Cloud offers Speech-to-Text conversion. However, to use Google Cloud you have to provide your credit card information and I am already at Amazon AWS for cloud services. Thus, it did not seem reasonable to register an account with Google only for trying to subtitle a series.

  • Chefkoch-Magazin-Rezepte kategorisieren mit OCR und Python

Deshalb wollte ich alle Rezepte in einer Liste sammeln. Das Abtippen jedes Titels erwies sich allerdings als zu umständlich.

    Croatia is one of the countries in the European Union that is not part of Schengen yet. This means that on entry and exit of the country passports are being checked. Depending on the intensity of the traffic this might lead to long wait times.

  • Continuous Delivery of an e-book with Softcover and Gitlab

    In a previous article I have explained how to setup GitLab in Docker behind Nginx. In this article I want to explain how you can use GitLab to do continuous delivery for different kind of projects.

  • Installing GitLab in an internal Docker Container behind a public Nginx

    There are several options available to install GitLab on your server. The recommended way by GitLab is to use GitLab Omnibus, but this will bundle with an included Nginx server. If you already have your own instance of Nginx you probably do not want to install another one - it cannot listen on the default ports anyway. Thus, you have to look for another method to install GitLab. Another possibility would be to install GitLab from source. In this case however, you will have to install PostgreSQL, Redis and Nodejs.
