Well would look at that – it’s a blog post!
I haven’t really toyed around with this thing for a while, but i somehow got
the inspiration now, so why stop a good inspiration when you have it?
So what is this thing?
Well, it’s a web site, or more specifically
a blog, which is generated and hosted on Gitlab and is
built on a system called Hugo with the
Kiera theme. Hugo eats markdown files.
When i push these to to Gitlab, a little robot (a Runner in Gitlab parlance)
translates it to a bunch of web pages and that’s what you’re seeing now (if you
aren’t watching the markdown source).
I would actually want to have the pages end up on my web server rather than on
Gitlab, but maybe i’ll be able to do something about that too once i learn some
more. I might even write up something about that.
I wish i could write exactly what i did to get this thing running, but it’s
based on efforts i did a year back and then refreshed today. But the much of
the process is described here
