[Tom_Morris]
hello lovely indieweb people. after being offline for a very long time, my personal site is back up… as a static site. I can’t promise I’m going to post lots on it, for various personal reasons, but it is no longer 500-ing, so that’s a plus.
#
[Tom_Morris]
I also sent a PR to the author of the Hugo theme I’m using to add rel-me links and it got approved. https://github.com/htr3n/hyde-hyde/pull/38

Yeah, I didn’t want to get set up on IRC again, and I’m socially mandated to use Slack.
#
[Tom_Morris]
Thanks for the welcome back @Zegnat. Was it Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett who said writing is 90% not getting distracted by the internet. s/writing/life/g 🙂
#
Zegnat
Not sure. But I bet it was a problem for Adams, as I recall he was a huge nerd. (Didn’t Stephen Fry talk about taking his Apple computer under the arm to visit Adams as they were two of the first UK Apple users?)
#
[kevinmarks]
Adams really enjoyed writing with other people, but couldn't do that for his novels and so stressed himself out all the time.
#
[Tom_Morris]
I know his editor locked him in hotel rooms for days on end to force him to write the fourth book of HHGG.

[kevinmarks]
He wrote the radio show with John Lloyd to help him finish it, but went solo on the novels.
#
[kevinmarks]
I am thinking of Hugo munging my site, but I haven't looked at netlify
#
[Tom_Morris]
netlify is handy because it is basically github pages but you can get it to work with https
#
[Tom_Morris]
it has let’s encrypt baked in.
#
Zegnat
GitHub Pages does HTTPS now too, if I am not wrong? Though this sounds like a discussion for the dev channel :)
#
[Tom_Morris]
ah yeah, the other things you can do on netlify that I like is redirects: you can create a simple plain text file with redirects in

[Tom_Morris]
one important thing I think that we could do re. static site generators like jekyll and hugo is make a listing on the wiki of which popular community-supported themes support h-entry, rel-me and other microformats/indieweb building blocks. hey, they should probably be on the uf wiki too
#
[Tom_Morris]
at some point, I’ll probably fork and make PRs on some of them to add h-entry, h-card and rel-me

[Tom_Morris] there is talk (see /Leaders page) of rethinking the wiki navigation around three pathways, one of which would be a SSG how-to guide

agreed [Tom_Morris], we need to streamline the setup for SSGs with IndieWeb support. I think there was some progress in that with the default templates for at least one of them now including mf2

!tell jgmac1106 SSG in particular was not really a focus of the three pathways proposal that I made on /Leaders for the home page.

I was grouping that into “build your own” path it was late when I was reading it..but I can envision it as just a new section and three nice icons with well though out wiki navigation but that is more -meta
