Ask HN: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself?

A silly userscript  that uses jQuery selectors to interact with YouTube's DOM to help me move videos around my playlists. Sadly it breaks every few months whenever YouTube updates their DOM. AFIK this is the only way to "programmatically" move videos out of my Watch Later list since they removed the functionality from the API
Ask HN: What personal tools are you the most proud of making?

I've created a couple of userscripts (anybody remember Greasemonkey?) to help augment sites that I use everyday
Sadly they break every couple of months when the sites' DOM changes. The YouTube one is currently broken and I haven't had the time to fix it yet

What framework or service do you use to build your programming language's documentation?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages | 5 Aug 2022
I use https://www.getzola.org/ + https://tailwindcss.com. In special the use of this plugin helps a lot (mean, you don't need to do styling for the markdown) https://tailwindcss.com/docs/typography-plugin.

The latest Zola needs a newer glibc: https://github.com/getzola/zola/issues/1713

Ask HN: What relatively new project/movement are you excited about?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Aug 2022
Not really new but I'm all in self-hosting, decentralization, privacy and original web owned by individuals rather than big corp. I never manage to get drowned in any social media trends or platform.
I really like Zola https://www.getzola.org/

What is the best way to get a free domain and hosting for a blog?

I mean from personal experience, I just setup my website through github pages or gitlab pages. Then I just used a static site generator like hugo or zola. The domain is also taken care of too as its just your username appended to either one of the git sites io domain.

How to Create a Simple Blog?
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 19 Apr 2022
Yep, I would suggest to go indie instead of using a posting platform. Platforms die, limit your control and growth options.
Grab a domain ($1 sale at Namecheap atm), generate the site from simple markdown files using Zola (it's basically a better Hugo — if you've heard of it), and host at Netlify for free.
People who prefer a specific language would prefer a framework / generator in that language. Zola is a somewhat neutral option — since you didn't mention your preferences for the language.
Same with the services. I personally prefer Cloudflare as both registrar and hosting, but Netlify would be a bit more intuitive to start with.
Like you, I love clean blog layouts. Shouldn't be a problem if you have a CSS background, but there are themes at the Zola site if you are busy. Not all are great, but there are a couple of neat and clean ones.
P.S. At first I was a bit surprised to see such question here, but then realized that it's actually smart to ask HK — as most of the googleable content is affiliate crap.
