Writing my own CMS in Golang?

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

After trying to write my own static site generator as an experiment, I now started to write my own CMS. Written in Go, SQLite as database (SQLite is awesome!) and focused on performance and simplicity. Currently I’m using Hugo with a number of dynamic additional services (for Micropub, Webmentions, ActivityPub, …), so it’s almost questionable why I use a static page generator at all. If I use my own lightweight and high-performance CMS, I could save myself all this extra stuff or at least reduce it in complexity.


“7 myths Apple is using to justify their 30% tax on apps”

Published on in 🔗 Links

Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram, published a blog post with “7 myths Apple is using to justify their 30% tax on apps”. He explains quite well why Apple’s practices are not fair and disproves many arguments that you can regularly read from Apple fans on Hacker News or in comments on tech news sites.
