Official Google Drive Linux Client Screenshots Leaked

piątek, 30 Styczeń 2015

Web Upd8: There are almost three years since Google Drive launched and we have yet to see an official client for Linux. 

There are almost three years since Google Drive launched and we have yet to see an official client for Linux. While there are various unofficial clients, none of them is perfect, with Insync probably being the best option, but it costs $15 per Google account and not everybody wants to pay for something Google is offering for free on Windows, Mac and mobile.

Oracle Releases Node.js Tools

The New Stack: Back at its OpenWorld event in 2014, Oracle announced it was working on a Node.js driver for its database products. The resulting code was released last week, as open source code with an Apache 2.0 license. 

Back at its OpenWorld event in 2014, Oracle announced it was working on a Node.js driver for its database products. The resulting code was released last week, as open source code with an Apache 2.0 license.

The driver is now available from GitHub, and includes tools for working with JavaScript objects and arrays, and for translating between Oracle and JavaScript data types. It’s designed to handle transactions, and to work with Oracle’s built-in scaling tools. This includes the ability to quickly end transactions in the event of server failures – allowing Node.js applications to quickly failover to another database, without losing user data.

While the driver is currently a preview release for Unix servers, including Linux and Mac OS, it’s under active development and support for Windows is forthcoming (which should allow Azure Oracle instances to work with Azure Node.js servers).
