What is the best practice for using `secrets` in Symfony 6?

4 October 2023 @ 5:55 pm

In Symfony 6, bin/console secrets:set MY_VAR seems super handy, especially to create environment specific variables - but if you have to upload the generated private decryption key to the server anyway, and the variable values are easily accessible via bin/console secrets:list --reveal , what are the advantages of using secrets via the cli vs simply defining MY_VAR in an environment-specific .env file?

this code is for navigation bar in my website. when a new notification comes the var has_new_notification will be true then the notification-mark should show in notification element in the navbar. also there is class called active that makes the element color in navbar change when i click on the element. the problem: i can only see the notification-mark on notification element when i am inside notification page. `{% load static %} a{ background-color: #51546e; color: #fff; padding: 10px 20px; margin: -10px -20px; border-radius: 10px; } .header__menuItem.notification { position: relative; } .notification-mark { position: absolute; top: 0; right: 0; width: 10px; height: 10px; background-color: red; border-radius: 50%; } DevSearch Logo Menu <li class="header__menuItem {% if request.path == '/accounts/notofications/' %}active{% endif %} notification"> <a href="{% url 'notofications' %}">Notificat

Auth0 SAML IDP-initiated returns the error “Unsupported response mode: auth0_pq_openid” when logging in

4 October 2023 @ 5:54 pm

We have our our auth0 stack set up from terraform. It currently consists of a regular web app and a SAML connection pointing to SAMLING ( Samling 1 ). Our goal is to implement IDP-initiated login (according to client requirements). Another point; we have a post login action that will attach two claims to the id_token. When the response is posted back from SAMLING, the user is created perfectly, the action is triggered perfectly but then we get redirected to auth0 error page saying " unsupported_response_mode : Unsupported response mode: auth0_pq_openid" It is absolutely frustrating the lack of resources related to auth0_pq_openid response_mode we find no helpful information at all. We have tried setting “front_channel” and “back_channel” on the SAML connection with no luck (it seem this config is associated with response_modes). We have previously set up everything by hand on another account and it worked just fine and when

In ant colony optimization algorithms, will ant select other nodes when the destination node is selectable?

4 October 2023 @ 5:54 pm

I'm new to the computational intelligence. Now I a doubt when learning the ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm. Will ant select other nodes when the destination node is selectable? And will the ants return to the source node? For this example, Ant 1 start from source (node 1) in the 1st iteration and move to node 5 and then node 6. Is it possible that this ant select node 4 instead of choosing destination node 7? In addition, what if pheromone dissipation is not considered. Do ants release pheromones multiple times on the same edge?

Creamy or Crunchy: Visualizing Food Protein Structures in Wolfram Language

15 September 2023 @ 8:51 pm

How important is the relationship between protein structure and the food we eat? Protein structure influences food texture. It can make a food smooth and creamy or crisp and crunchy.Protein structure helps determine digestibility. Proteins with looser structures are more readily hydrolyzed into amino acids for easier digestion.Protein structure is a factor in whether foods such as peanuts and shellfish cause an allergic reaction.Protein structure can make our foods elegant and appetizing.

Prompts for Work & Play: Launching the Wolfram Prompt Repository

8 June 2023 @ 2:04 am

Prompts are how one channels an LLM to do something. LLMs in a sense always have lots of “latent capability” (e.g. from their training on billions of webpages). But prompts—in a way that’s still scientifically mysterious—are what let one “engineer” what part of that capability to bring out.
