New tag pages

3 April 2013 3:33 AM (tekuti | meta | dispass.el)

I've changed my tekuti instance to have tag pages that look more like the index page. I did this so that I can use tag pages as news pages for my various projects. You may have a look at the dispass.el project site to see the new "Read News" link, which will take you to the dispass.el tag page.

Minor update

27 December 2012 2:59 AM (meta)

Just a minor update, I've changed the stylesheet to have <pre> blocks have a little less padding and some greater margins so it should be clear that the lines are part of the block and not just page separation or glitches. Also, for the pages generated by org-mode the table of contents should be hidden by default and pop-up when you hover over it.

First post!

Again with the first post, I just can't stop!

Guess what's back

3 October 2012 10:24 PM (org-mode | tekuti | meta | emacs | elisp | coding | blogging)

A while ago I wrote a couple of functions in GNU Emacs to help me with blogging using tekuti. I don't know how, but I somehow accidentally deleted the file these functions were in and didn't have the energy to retrieve it.

Today I wanted to blog a little again and so I rewrote the functions from last time, but this time hopefully a little better. I'm now fully dependent on org-mode and use its comment/property syntax to manage tekuti's metadata.

I've already put it in a temporary spot for safe keeping, I'll move it somewhere else when I have a little more of it.

The functions I'll still want to add include:

  • Editing the posts I've written in org, showing the options I used
    for them in the usual way.

  • Automatic committing, this shouldn't be too hard since I've also
    written an emacs minor mode that does this.

  • Easy saving, listing and continuing of drafts, right now I'm just
    placing org files in my $HOME directory.

And anything else that I can come up with later.

Once more

10 August 2012 0:07 AM (meta | tekuti)

Once again I'm trying something new. This time it's tekuti, written in scheme, or guile more specifically, and running on lighttpd with modlisp. It's an interesting experiment.

I don't know if org-blog doesn't suit my needs or if its just that the new toy has lost its shine, but I've had an itch to try tekuti and now I'm scratching it.

Let's hope it sticks this time.

Website update

3 June 2012 11:18 PM (meta)

As you can see I finally updated my website again. It's the same basic idea as before, except this time I try to make the posts look more lisp-y, since I'm writing a lot more emacs-lisp as of late I've grown fond of all the parentheses.

I've also moved my static website from ninthfloor to my own domain in the hopes it will become more a part of my website than it was before, although the beauty of static websites generated by things like org-mode, jekyll and such is of course that they can pretty much be placed on any public web space, and they're fast.

Anyway, perhaps I'll post more, but for now I'm happy to have changed things a little again.

Another approach

14 March 2012 0:00 AM (meta | project)

I thought I'd give having the website another try, except this time I'd take a different approach.

There are many fun/cool/interesting places, communities and sites to join and to post things on or to or at. I thought it might be an interesting idea to gather it all up and show it in one place.

So I've written a very simple RSS parser that just goes through a few RSS feeds and puts all the posts together. Now I barely have to maintain a site in order to have one, which makes things very easy for me.

CGI

29 January 2012 0:00 AM (meta | test)

Just testing to see if the CGI works correctly now.

It does!

An experiment

23 December 2011 0:00 AM (meta | blazeblogger)

I don't like using web pages. I don't like using web browsers either. Or perhaps I only dislike using web pages because I dislike using web browsers. No matter, though.

This means, although I really like all of django's features, I dislike using the admin pages to maintain a website/blog. Give me the commandline + emacs any day!

It is for this reason that I've decided to try out BlazeBlogger. This way I can use a couple of commandline utilities and emacs to maintain a simplistic web site and feel very comfortable doing so, I hope.

I hope this will also inspire me to write some more blog posts. I've written a few, but they were/are pretty much all about changes I made to the site, that's not very interesting.
