    :globe_with_meridians: Jekyll is a blog-aware static site generator in Ruby

    Project mention: Ask HN: Looking for lightweight personal blogging platform | | 2024-02-06

    In future, if you want to move from Jekyll to something else, you just have to worry about that `_posts` and `_assets` folder. They may have different naming convention but you can just config-managed it or change it to your choice. This is why I suggested owning that two yourself.

    You also may not worry about FrontMatter[3] (meta in the header) and its accompanying jazz by asking Jekyll to use the plugins `jekyll-optional-front-matter` and `jekyll-titles-from-headings`. These comes as part of the officially supported Jekyll plugins[4] by Github. That way, you are just writing a human-readable plain-text spiced up with Markdown and readable by almost every other Static Site Generator.

    Now, play with the `_config.yml` that Jekyll generates for you from the theme above to define your post dates, navigation, and others. Jekyll is one of the OGs — the Gandalf of Static Site Generators. If you have a problem, someone somewhere has solved that.

    Did I missed something? I was supposed to write a blog article for my website on this one and this comment will serve as my starting bullet points.





  • Gollum

    A simple, Git-powered wiki with a sweet API and local frontend.

    Project mention: Can Git or any other VCS be used as a database instead of SQL/NoSQL ones? Have you ever seen such a thing? | /r/AskProgramming | 2023-12-07

    Arguably something like ikiwiki or gollum is doing this. These are both wikis that use git as their backend 'database'. I happen to like wikis like this a lot better over wikis that store their data in mysql or some other traditional SQL backend.

    Project mention: Exam Complete -- Got enough points but am worried about the report. | /r/oscp | 2023-07-05

    Thank you! Yes, I used and included vulnerability details, as well as how to fix the vulnerability and it got lengthy which I think was unnecessary, but I tried to make it nice and be thorough. I probably should've put more time in trying to fix the other issues I had but oh well.
