    :zap: Dynamically generated stats for your github readmes

    The widgets at the bottom of the site are based on a library called GitHub readme stats. It is a set of scripts hosted on Vercel that generates stats based on your GitHub info. It is meant for custom Readme files that you show on your GitHub page, but it works just as well on my site. The second widget is also from the same repo but pulls the information from Wakatime. Wakatime silently watches your code editors, in a non-creepy way, and gathers statistics on what language you are working in, how long you have spent on a project, and other metrics. I've been using it for years, and I find it a great metric on what other languages I've interacted with beyond PHP.

  • cross-post

    Cross Post a blog to multiple websites

    The final piece of my blogging infrastructure is an NPM utility called cross-post. This will take the content from the main blog (in this case, the url for my CMS environment) and post to Hashnode and Dev.to. This post is my first attempt at this, so I’m crossing fingers.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • jigsaw

    Simple static sites with Laravel’s Blade.

    Now, as for what runs the site. It is a static site, using Jigsaw as the framework. Jigsaw uses Laravel’s blade templating. Since one of my goals this year is to learn Laravel, it was the perfect fit for my site. GitHub is where I've decided to store my repos, and Netlify watches for changes to my main branch and rebuilds my site.

  • Puts Debuggerer

    Ruby library for improved puts debugging, automatically displaying bonus useful information such as source line number and source code.
