  • Fun with File Formats

    In addition to this resource and UK's equivalent (PRONOM/DROID, also mentioned in the linked post), I've found ArchiveTeam's wiki to be very useful for obscure file format details: http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/

    The `shared-mime-info` database from freedesktop-dot-org is probably more worthy of contribution than these government-backed databases, at least in terms of number-of-end-users. New type definitions in their database will improve the entire Linux/BSD ecosystem (both desktop and server!) because it's consumed not only by fd.o's own `update-mime-database` utility but by many language-specific type-identification libraries too https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xdg/shared-mime-info/-/blob/m...

    …including (shameless plug) the new Ractor-based Ruby type library I've been working on in the wake of the `mimemagic` drama earlier this year: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/tree/NEW%E2%80%85SENSA...

    I considered switching to Hugo a while back but ended up sticking with Jekyll for the extensibility, like a few others have said. I'm particularly interested in image thumbnailing and format conversion since so many of my posts are image-heavy. I often found that to be my biggest and most frequent barrier to writing since plain text only goes so far on the modern web.

    In Hugo, every solution I've seen uses a custom shortcode or custom Markdown image template-rendering hook along with Hugo's build-in image resizing. Many posts even suggest converting image resources to different formats with an external tool. It does seem like the image handling situation in Hugo is improving since it just gained WebP processing support in addition to JPEG: https://gohugo.io/news/0.83.0-relnotes/

    Jekyll plugins offer way more power than a shortcode ('include' in Jekyll-speak) can, like how the author of the OP is using Jekyll-Picture-Tag. I've been working on my own similar plugin to handle converting and embedding my site's images, videos, SVGs, PDFs, text files, fonts and weird retro computer formats, etc. For example I can embed an SVG using standard Markdown syntax like `![](somediagram.svg)` and get a tag with the SVG plus rasterized JPG+WebP+AVIF+whatever at multiple sizes all totally seamlessly: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD

    Very happy the existence of Hugo lit a fire under the Jekyll team to work on speed though :)

    > It works at first, but you end up wanting to design your own custom SSG once you run up against something that goes against your mental model of how things should work.

    There is a middle ground. I hit this point in Jekyll when I wanted Insanely Great image thumbnailing that no extant Jekyll plugin could provide, ended up writing my own tool to do that, but didn't want to duplicate the rest of Jekyll's functionality too. It's kiiinda hacky and I probably should propose the interface changes upstream if I keep doing this, but a very light monkey-patch lets my tool pretend to be a Jekyll::StaticFile that just happens to write out many separate files: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/blob/master/DistorteD-...
