I’ve wanting to modify the image short codes that I use so that they’re more automated. I finally got around to solving that now.
I’ve been working on making myself a short code to deal with translating an unusual CSV file into data that’s usable to Gohugo. It was to make my personal weather station’s data available on here. The go templates just are not something that’s super intuitive to me.
I have been slowly working on tweaking the layout files and CSS for my site here. It’s been fun learning new things and learning how powerful CSS has become.
I have decided that I want to look into alternatives to Kwrite as an editor for my website stuff. There’s nothing wrong with Kwrite at all. It just does more than I need it to do for these purposes and I thought I’d just try something new because that’s always fun. The only prerequisite that it has to have for me to use it is handle markdown well. That shouldn’t be too hard of a task to do since the markdown is basically just text.
A little over a year ago I was looking into alternatives to WordPress. Not that there was anything wrong with it, I just wanted to give something different a shot. This is more of a hobby with my ramblings for myself more than anything. I gave a couple of other platforms a try and they worked well enough but then I stumbled onto static site generators It seemed like a good idea to give it a shot since this is only a small hobby for me.
I don’t use this all that often anymore. Just too busy with other things right now. I’d used WordPress for years but had to check every so often for updates. I’d been meaning to look into static websites again for convenience and security purposes. I came across Hugo and it seemed like it would do just want I wanted. It’s still easy to create posts and such without running any scripts on the server.
