META Post - Blog Infrastructure
Static Website Generation
I write all my posts in markdown and use jekyll to generate a static HTML/JS website. I use a modifed version of the Sidey Theme Sidey Theme.
All code and content is stored and pushed to a private GitLab repo.
Simple website analytics are collected through the personal version of goatcounter.com
dannysalzman.com is registered on namecheap.com
I use a free Netlify.com account to host dannysalzman.com. It is a static website. That’s why it’s so SNAPPY and FAST!
The Gitlab repo is connected to my Netlify account. Whenever I push a change to ‘Master’ in Gitlab that creates a post commmit hook to Netlify to rebuild and deploy the website with the latest code.
