The Post About the Blog

Stuff used

  • Hugo - go-templates into static html. Great to work with, and very nice to have posts and everything in repos. Write the theme AND the content in your favourite editor while having it autoreload in your browser.
  • NGINX + Certbot - approximately 5 min setup from blank server to webserver that handles its own certs.
  • mastercss - css library. Mostly because the theme I used as the foundation used it and it seemed new and cool.
  • CI/CD - … deploy script using rsync ;)

All hosted on a very cheap hetzner VPS. Having used both AWS and GCP it’s quite nice to have a cloud provider where you can read about all of their offerings in 10 minutes and be up and running in another 10 (…after getting through the identification process).


Fun way to document projects.
