Until “now” I was happy user of Jekyll static site generator, everything worked fine with it and blog was easy to manage. The major drawback of Jekyll (for me that is) is that it is written in Ruby and I never before worked with Ruby. Because of this I diceded to go the “easy” route and use docker image to simplify the initial installation and Jekyll management. The official docker image works fine, the only thing I needed to do was to add ruby gem local cache so it would not need to download all that mess over and over again (what a hell that is).
After a while I am writing about changes on this blog. The major changes in short are: New domain name. Self-hosted on VPS which is powered by Artix. Own git server powered by Gitea. Openring integration which provides links to articles from blogs I follow. For the future I plan some things, but the current setup is working fine so I have no idea when it will be done.
After some time I once again tried to create a blog. This time with it should be nice static site with dark design and only memories. At first I went on journey to find a nice dark theme which I would use as a base. After a bit I found tocttou/hacker-blog which is really nice. See demo. Customization It sounds all nice and fine but it is a bit plain. I decided that categories or tags would be nice.
