Thinking about WordPress

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Today I have dealt with WordPress for the first time in a long time. I’m not planning to move my blog to WordPress (I’m in the process of developing my own content management system), but have set up a site for someone else and migrated a few articles.

This day is successful: I created a recursive SQL CTE in SQLite even before noon. :nerd:

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.

How to Get a Completely Free Website

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev
Updated on

In this post I want to show with which services and tools it is possible to run a completely free website. An own website not only offers the possibility to create your own professional web presence, it can also make you independent from silos like Facebook, Twitter or Medium. It is always better to publish content on your own page with your own domain. If a service changes the terms of use or ceases operation, it is so much easier to move to another service.

Published on in 🔗 Links

Similar to Ghost 3.0, WordPress (WordPress.com + Jetpack sites) now supports payments too. As with Ghost, this is also based on Stripe, but with a few more options (because WordPress in general has more options).
