schestowitz[TR2]                                        <p>I won't explain much in this blog post because I just want to introduce nftables and show what it looks like, and how to get started.</p>Feb 07 13:41
schestowitz[TR2]                                        <p>I added comments in my configuration files, I hope it's enough to get a grasp and make you curious to learn about nftables if you use Linux.</p>Feb 07 13:41

schestowitz[TR2]                                        <p>A desktop is a great introduction if you’ve never used BSD before. It teaches you about package management, how the base system is structured, building your first OpenZFS pool, how to perform updates, and in the case of FreeBSD, how to run tools like jails for process isolation, and bhyve for virtual machines. It’s these use cases that happen to make the FreeBSD desktop extremely compeFeb 07 13:55
schestowitz[TR2]lling for me. While understood to be “server” technologies, they also make upgrading foolproof, and the testing new software and architectures a cinch.</p>Feb 07 13:55

schestowitz[TR2]                    <p>The breakout board for the Librem 5 is a great way for hardware hackers to add functionality to your phone. When attached, you’ll have nicely exposed programmable pins. This allows you to use I2C, serial, and many digital sensors, much like you would on a single-board microcomputer.</p>Feb 07 14:18
schestowitz[TR2]                    <p>With this setup, you can add ambient temperature, gas, humidity, and many other sensor types to your Librem 5.</p><p>Once you get your Breakout board and other needed electronics for your project, you can plan out which pins you’ll need. For this example, we are using I2C for an ENS160 gas sensor. Because the I2C logic voltage on the Librem 5 is 1.8V, we need to use a level translator to translate it to 3.3Feb 07 14:18
schestowitz[TR2]V.Now that we know what will be hooked up, we can short these pads with solder on the breakout board to expose 3.3V and 1.8V. With that done, we can attach the breakout board to the Librem 5.</p>Feb 07 14:18
