My First Pull RequestMay 8, 2020 | 3 minutes
From the countless posts I’ve seen from #100DaysToOffload, I finally decided to partake as well. Well, even though I did get NetlifyCMS up and running to post online, I’m still writing this post on a Vim terminal. Over the week, I’ve been playing around with self-hosting an instance of Pleroma on one of my spare Rasberry Pis with YunoHost. I’ll probably make a separate post on this when I get it to a much more stable state.

Ok! I felt pretty bad neglecting the webpage, considering that I do enjoy the Hermit theme and the overall Hugo structure. One of my major issues was that I set this up with a 1-click deployment within Netlify. This was nice for a couple of reasons: Download a sample hugo website with some posts Download and auto-setup NetlifyCMS, a web interface that will publish posts or page updates to git behind the scenes Incorporate scripts for a CI/CD process to deploy this via Netlify, which is where the site is currently hosted I managed to initially hack around the files enough to change the theme and add my own content, but there was tons of sprinklings of placeholder formats, posts, and silly things like shopping cart items.
Playing with DNS & IPv6 at HomeOctober 28, 2019 | 2 minutes
Lesson learned today; if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. As part of attempting to take general ownership of my own data, I’ve been trying to lessen my reliance on Google. I’ve been playing around with a few alternative email sources (Tutanota and Proton Mail), which I’ll probably discuss at a later date. Anyways, my recent goal was to set up NextCloud, specifically NextCloud Pi since I have a fairly idle Raspberry Pi that only does Ad-blocking via DNS.
HelloAugust 26, 2019 |
Hello! I’ve been out of the personal website making business for a while, but I felt a bit compelled to start practicing again ever since I’ve been reading up on posts on Fosstodon Mastodon instance. It took some thinking to figure out what I wanted to build, but essentially I’m making: GitLab Hugo Netlify CMS There may be some major changes going on, but I’ll try to share my discoveries as I go along.
