Technically Alex's blog

How this all started. Meta

It all started with a little something like this during a late night voice call:

    <Me> *finishes explaining what I did during the week*
    <I??> Y'know you should make a blog or something as a way to show what your are doing as what you are doing is impressive and could maybe get you a job
    <Me> Intresting I guess that is this weekend's project

So I started working on the blog on 27 March, 2021 and got it to a somewhat working state the next day. This is the current iteration of the blog and it is built a little something like this:

          YOU!
          /^\
           |
        (https)
           |
    Caddy (webserver blag.nicolor.tech)
          /^\
           |
        (rsync)
           |
    Gitlab runner (build the site)
          /^\
           |      
    Gitlab (hosting the source)
          /^\
           | 
         (git)  <———————————
           |				       |
      Me (clueless) —> Forestry.io (CMS)

Next up is frameworks I am using. This site is a somewhat modified version of the "eleventy base blog" skeleton thing. For static site generation I'm useing 11ty (eleventy) framework.
