How to document a project with MkDocs πŸ“Ή


Welcome my third video tutorial, this time, on how to get started with MkDocs.

In this video I try to give you a basic overview of MkDocs and a configuration consisting of the material theme and search plugin.


The MkDocs configuration used in the video.

site_name: My Cool Project Documentation
  name: material
    - search.suggest
    - search.highlight
  - search
  - Introduction: ""
  - Tutorial:
      - Tutorial Subsection: "pages/tutorial/"
  - About: "pages/"

Docker Deployment

When you’re ready to deploy your documentation website, say in Docker with Nginx the following Dockerfile and Nginx default.conf should do.


FROM python:3.9 as builder


COPY . .

RUN pip install mkdocs mkdocs-material && mkdocs build

FROM nginx as deploy

# Copy the build to the nginx directory.
COPY --from=builder /app/site/ /usr/share/nginx/html/

# Copy the nginx configuration to the nginx config directory.
COPY default.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/

EXPOSE 8080:8080/tcp


server {
    listen 8080;
    root /usr/share/nginx/html/;
    index index.html;

I thought that making videos will be easier that typing blog posts but to my surprise the difficulty is a bit higher. Fixing mistakes takes more time with videos and since I’m not that great of a presenter I struggle with presenting the content. Hopefully I will improve my skills with time and practice.

How to write parametrized tests in Python with pytest πŸŽ₯

Hi πŸ‘‹

Welcome to another video tutorial on how to write parametrized tests in Python using pytest.

If you want to follow along, here’s the code that I’ve tested in the video.

from typing import List

class Solution:
    def move_zeroes(self, nums: List[int]) -> None:
        last_zero = 0
        index = 0
        while index < len(nums):
            if nums[index] != 0:
                nums[last_zero], nums[index] = nums[index], nums[last_zero]
                last_zero += 1
            index += 1

def main():
    solution = Solution()
    arr = [1,0,1]

if __name__ == '__main__':

AutoFixture in ASP.Net Core πŸŽ₯

Hello, πŸ‘‹

This is my first video blog post in which I try to explain AutoFixture.

Here’s the test case referenced in the video and the code repository for the Retroactiune project.

I used the following packages in my project.

        <PackageReference Include="AutoFixture" Version="4.17.0" />
        <PackageReference Include="AutoFixture.Xunit2" Version="4.17.0" />

Thanks for watching! πŸ™‚
