Website

Yesterday, I wrote it's time to stop using Facebook, and I wrote about how I'm still using Instagram and WhatsApp. To be able to delete my Instagram account soon, I'm now building an Instagram archive on my website with photos I originally published on Instagram. For the gallery I took inspiration from hugo-easy-gallery and the gallery on justabloginthepark.com (source) and used PhotoSwipe. It's a really nice JavaScript library without dependencies.
I used Pagekit for quite some time with my personal homepage. Pagekit gave me a nice Admin UI and there were also nice themes and plugins, which I could use. But Pagekit is PHP and the setup isn't that optimal. So I switched back to a static site setup with Hugo. Some years ago I used Jekyll to build a lot of websites. Jekyll was really easy to use and you could host your sites on GitHub for free, I didn't rent a server yet back then.
In this post I’ll describe you how you can run a fully customizable and fast website with an custom domain completely free! GitHub Pages GitHub Pages is the hosting service we’ll use for the website. GitHub Pages is a part of GitHub where you can host websites for free. How you can setup a GitHub Page read here. You can also use an custom domain, but later more… Jekyll Jekyll is the blogging system we’ll use to setup the page (or blog).
