Remote Debugging ASP.NET Core with Ngrok

Sometimes it can be helpful to test your apps not only on a local machine, but also using other devices within or outside, your network. In my current example, I use an ASP.NET Core web application that contains an API that I can in turn access via an Android app. I debug the Android app on a physical device that is on the same network as the ASP.NET Core application....

Password-Synchronization with Syncthing

If you are reading this, chances are you already use a password manager. I have been doing that for several years now.

Domain Redirection with .htaccess and PHP

I’ve been starting a new blog on my domain, for which I wanted to use the ‘blog’ subdomain. However, this subdomain was already in use for all my coding-related stuff. So, I decided to move my current blog from /blog to /coding and upload my new blog to /blog. So far, so good. Now I have both of my blogs up and running.
