Use Makefile as a task runner for arbitrary projects

Use Makefile as a task runner for arbitrary projects

Use the make, Luke!


Simple Example

MAKEFLAGS += --jobs=4

INDICES = music_group music_album music_recording music_composition

.PHONY: prepare up stop get_indices $(INDICES)

    mkdir -p ../Muzeum-Node-Data

up: prepare
    docker-compose up

    docker-compose stop

    docker-compose exec ipfs sh

    mkdir -p ../Muzeum-Node-Data/ipfs/export/soundscape/[email protected]
    docker-compose exec ipfs ipfs get /ipns/[email protected]/index.json -o soundscape/[email protected]/index.json

get_indices: $(INDICES)


Automatic Variables



Let's assume you have install target, which is a very common in Makefiles. If you do not use .PHONY, and a file named install exists in the same directory as the Makefile, then make install will do nothing.


Run Another Target in the Same Makefile

Say that coverage depends on clean.

.PHONY: clean coverage

     find . -regex "\(.*__pycache__.*\|*.py[co]\)" -delete

coverage: clean
     docker exec -i -t streetvoice_django_1 python -m coverage run test --failfast
     docker exec -i -t streetvoice_django_1 python -m coverage html -i


Run Targets Parallelly

MAKEFLAGS += --jobs=4

.PHONY: task1 task2 task3 task4

    echo "hello [email protected]"

    echo "hello [email protected]"

    echo "hello [email protected]"

    echo "hello [email protected]"

tasks: task1 task2 task3 task4

You could add MAKEFLAGS += --jobs=4 in your Makefile, or you could also call make with -j 4 explicitly.

$ make tasks
# or
$ make -j 4 tasks


Pass Arguments to make command

.PHONY: something

ifeq ($(var),foo)
    @echo $(var) "bar"
    @echo "others"
$ make something var=foo
foo bar

$ make something


Detect OS

.PHONY: update

ifeq ($(shell uname),Darwin)
    brew update
    apt-get update

Check Whether a File or Directory Exists

.PHONY: up install

ifneq ($(wildcard /usr/local/HAL-9000/bin/hal),)
    UP_COMMAND = /usr/local/HAL-9000/bin/hal up
    UP_COMMAND = docker-compose up


    pip install -r requirements_dev.txt

Spark SQL cookbook (Python)

最近在為 StreetVoice 開發一個音樂的推薦系統,採用 Apache Spark,不過因為老是忘記 DataFrame 某某功能的用法,所以就乾脆仿效 O'Reilly 著名的 Cookbook 系列,幫自己寫了一篇 Spark SQL cookbook,複習、速查兩相宜啊。

因為 Spark 支援 Scala、Java、Python 和 R,一開始是打算用 Scala 來練練功的,不過畢竟是公司的專案,考慮到後續其他人的參與和維護,好像還是採用一個團隊成員都熟悉的語言比較好吶(成熟的大人.jpg)。


How to Size Executors, Cores and Memory for a Spark application running in memory

在使用 spark-submit 的時候可以指定 --driver-memory--executor-memory--executor-cores--num-executors 等參數來配置你的 Spark app 可以使用的運算資源,這篇文章指出了幾個需要注意的地方以及 One executor per core 和 One executor per node 這兩種做法會有什麼問題。

P.S. 現在 Spark 除了 Standalone 和 YARN 模式之外,也開始實驗性地支援 Kubernetes 了:apache-spark-on-k8s,看樣子 k8s 真的有一統江湖之勢了啊。

Mastering Feature Engineering

整個推薦系統的 pipeline 可以很粗略地分成 candidate generation 和 ranking 兩個部分,而 ranking 常用的模型之一就是簡單粗暴的 Logistic Regression(通常還會搭配 GBDT 或 Deep Neural Networks)。因為要用 LR 需要大量的 Feature Engineering,所以我就特地找了一本專門在講特徵工程的書,上週末去剪頭髮的時候終於讀完,正好可以推薦給大家。

不過這本書講的是比較基礎的部分(不要想一步登天嘛),例如針對數值特徵的 Binning 或標準化、針對文字特徵的 TF-IDF 和針對類別特徵的 One-hot encoding 或 Feature hashing,對創建出非線性特徵的 Feature Construction 則沒有什麼著墨。可以搭配前幾期推薦過的「机器学习中的数据清洗与特征处理综述」一起看。

Write Explicit Tests

Sometimes, normal programming good practices don’t apply to software tests. DRY in particular I don’t subscribe to for test code, because I want my tests to read like a story. - Kent Beck 如是說


Strace - The SysAdmin's Microscope

strace 是個可以用來觀測某個 script 或 process 在 system call 這個層面到底做了哪些事的指令,是 troubleshooting 的好幫手,尤其是用來解決在 Linux 上大家喜聞樂見的「幹你娘為什麼 xxx 跑不起來?!(20 分鐘之後)噢我權限設錯了」的問題。

單核心,如果 Load average 是 1 表示負載 100%
多核心的話,因為 Load average 是所有 CPU 數加起來,所以數值可能會大於 1
