Personal website built with Jekyll and hosted on Netlify.
My personal website has had a few iterations:
- First completely static and hand-written (yes, hand-written HTML) hosted on my own FreeBSD server running in my bedroom. Local Gitolite repository set up with a custom-hacked deployment script that copies files from the git repo to the local nginx web server content directory.
- The same website but hosted on a traditional web host (uberspace) with automatic deployment using GitHub with GitHub SCP action.
- The current setup: Jekyll + Netlify.
). Jekyll A Static Site Generator (SSG) built with ruby. Popularized as of its adoption in GitHub Pages.
makes it a breeze to publish new content: just create a new markdown file and the build system takes care of the rest for you.
Netlify provides free hosting for small private users and let’s you set up a nice CD pipeline (automatic website publish on git push to main branch).
