PostgreSQL – select all tables and all columns from the database

How to find all the table names in your schema:

select table_catalog, table_name, table_type from information_schema.tables where table_type like '%TABLE%' and table_name not like 'pg%' and table_name not like 'sql%' order by table_name asc;

How to find out all the columns and column types:

select table_name, column_name, data_type  from information_schema.columns col where table_name in (select table_name from information_schema.tables tab where table_type like '%TABLE%' and table_name not like 'pg%' and table_name not like 'sql%' order by table_name asc);

Putty – convert ppk to OpenSSH and use multiple keys

Open PuttyGen
Click Load
Load your private key
Go to Conversions->Export OpenSSH and export your private key
Copy your private key to ~/.ssh/id_dsa (or id_rsa).

Create the RFC 4716 version of the public key using ssh-keygen

ssh-keygen -e -f ~/.ssh/id_dsa > ~/.ssh/id_dsa_com.pub

Convert the RFC 4716 version of the public key to the OpenSSH format:

ssh-keygen -i -f ~/.ssh/id_dsa_com.pub > ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub

So in each of the subfolders you will have id_rsa and id_rsa.pub.
Pointing to the Key

The only problem now, is that when ssh searches for a key, it won’t be able to find the one it’s looking for. You need to correctly edit your config file that should be located in your ~/.ssh/ folder. If it isn’t already there, just create a new file.

Mine looks like the following:

Host github.com
	User git
	Hostname github.com
	PreferredAuthentications publickey
	IdentityFile ~/.ssh/git/id_rsa
Host fedoraproject.org
	Hostname fedoraproject.org
	PreferredAuthentications publickey
	IdentityFile ~/.ssh/fedoraproject/id_rsa
Host fedorapeople.org
	Hostname fedorapeople.org
	PreferredAuthentications publickey
	IdentityFile ~/.ssh/fedoraproject/id_rsa

Swift: Add basic HTTPAuth to NSURLSession

First you need to make sure that you use a different NSURLSessionConfiguration, where you will modify the headers.
The HTTP Auth needs to be like “Basic: base64 string”, the base64 string being the encoding of username:password.

let userPasswordString = "\(email):\(password)"
            let userPasswordData = userPasswordString.dataUsingEncoding(NSUTF8StringEncoding)
            let base64EncodedCredential = userPasswordData!.base64EncodedStringWithOptions(nil)
            let authString = "Basic \(base64EncodedCredential)"
            sessionConfiguration.HTTPAdditionalHeaders = ["Authorization" : authString]
