Static

2019-6-13

Over the last years I have developed a static site generator written in Go. This site and some others are generated by the tool.
The frontend part of the site adapts gracefully from desktop width windows to mobile phone screens by reducing the number of columns of the layout.
With some added automations I reduced the effort for my blogging purposes to a minimum. For example, the AWS instance running the tool periodically scans a dropbox folder and automatically adds a new blog post if I put an image in a certain dropbox folder.
After updating the static site it publishes the new post to twitter and adds a variety of hashtags to ti.
My main reason for starting the project was independence from platform politics after a wordpress update broke the theme of my old blog.
If you are interested in the code, you can find the repository on github.
