New Year - New Engine

Chyrp pretty much died (last update in 2016), Chyrp Lite‘s codebase is too different at this point (I have custom feathers, custom image processing and probably a few other things, and I don't remember at all how I did any of it), and having a website with an outdated CMS is a major security hole. I've heard of Jekyll, but hadn't thought much about Static Site Generators until I encountered Erik McClure's website (through a link to Pony Clicker). I saw what he did with his blog, though about what I needed for my blog and eventually decided to migrate to a static website. I had a choice between Jekyll and Hugo. Jekyll required a Ruby environment and had some dependencies, while Hugo was written in Go and was compiled into a single binary. Also SlackBuilds had Hugo and didn't have Jekyll. So Hugo it is.

SlackBuilds batch

I've been a bit busy with script writing, as you can see. But let me tell you everything in the right order. Mintstick As I said in my post on Google+, there's a shortage on tools for USB sticks formatting. The one I chose in the end was mintstick. It's simple enough for the average PC user and doesn't have many dependencies. I was also considering Gnome Disk Util, which is for some reason like alpha and omega of easy to use formatting tools, but it requires gnome-common at very least, so I decided to go with mintstick, which I really liked.

Mass Photo feather for Chyrp

It took me a couple of days (the whole weekend minus time for watching livestreams) and a lot of effort (I don't know PHP and generally can't write anything more complex than simple scripts), but it seems to work. The result is my previous post. The feather (extention for Chyrp blog CMS that provides new format for your posts) is based on the default Photo feather, except there's no Alt-Text field.

It turned out, that I need a full featured website much less than a simple blog. I don’t want to have a blog on Tumblr, but I do like their implementation of it, so I went with Chyrp, which is pretty close. But then Chyrp died, so I moved to Hugo. The blog is NSFW, as I might occasionally post some pr0n and other disturbing stuff.
