* Add lp2019 talk cs4mMike Gerwitz2019-03-253-0/+39
* rss: Fix header link and redirect broken linksMike Gerwitz2019-02-211-1/+1
| | | | | | I noticed a lot of odd `/rss.xml' requests in my 404 log. As it turns out, it was my fault. This both fixes it and adds a redirect in case someone tries to do this manually. I suppose that'd be convenient.
* post: GHCQ's Exceptional AccessMike Gerwitz2019-02-181-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Wow. I had wanted to spend less than an hour on a response, and instead I wound up writing my largest article since the NSA revelations and GHS. Hopefully others find this useful. I've been sitting on this for weeks because I didn't have the time to finish final proofreading and changes. I need to release this before I sit on it for another couple; I have to start working on my LP2019 talk soon. * post/2019-02-18-ghcq-exceptional-access-e2ee-decentralization-reproducible.md: New post. * src/papers.rec: Add post to top.
* rss: Clarify that RSS content is the abstractMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | I'm still debating whether to include the full text of the post within the RSS feed, since some of them may be substantial (like the one I'll be posting soon that I've been sitting on for a couple weeks because I'm too busy/lazy to do final editing). * src/rss.sh: Add "(Read full post)" link.
* footer: Add RSS linkMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-0/+1
| | | | | | Oops. * src/footer.tpl.htm: Add `RSS Feed' link.
* css: Prevent preload inline from overriding stylesheetMike Gerwitz2019-02-161-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | The inlined CSS intended to make the stylesheet applicaton less jarring on slow connections was placed _after_ `style.css', which was causing it to take precedence over the mobile layout. Silly mistake, and not good. And it went unnoticed for too long; I didn't visit my own website on mobile for a bit. Sorry, mobile people! * src/header.tpl.htm (head): Move style.css link below inline style.
* Generate inline CSS for page headerMike Gerwitz2019-01-192-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The idea here is to provide as little CSS as is sensible for the initial page load to be styled in a layout similar to the final layout. This initial styling may be briefly visible on a slow conection. Slow connections can happen for a variety of reasons. For example, I'm a Tor user, and connection speeds vary. Mobile connection speeds can also vary wildly. This adds a few hundred bytes, but I was able to cut it down quite a bit, and I don't find this to be unreasonable relative to the other data on each page.
* src/index.sh: Set sapsf talk linkMike Gerwitz2019-01-181-1/+1
| | | | Wow, the most prominant link on the page and I forgot to set it.
* cgit-root generationMike Gerwitz2019-01-174-83/+54
| | | | | | | | This automates creation of the header and footer. Previously I modified them manually and they got out-of-sync. This is deployed to a different location on my webserver, even though the public route is `/projects'.
* src/cgit: Add existing configurationMike Gerwitz2019-01-175-0/+260
| | | | | This contains the old header and footer. Committing this first will allow us to easily see the diff.
* Link to source code of postMike Gerwitz2019-01-171-2/+12
| | | | | | Rather than displaying the hash separately, this just makes the date a link to the source code. Until I display a modification date, this will also make it easy to see the history of the file.
* Responsive desginMike Gerwitz2019-01-173-15/+16
| | | | | | This website honors the user's default font settings (both to be kind and for accessibility reasons). Consequently, the responsive layout is based on character units (ch) rather than pixels.
* Update footer links and Copyright yearMike Gerwitz2019-01-171-13/+15
* Index page sapsf highlight cleanupMike Gerwitz2019-01-161-0/+1
| | | | | This corrects the padding and provides better placement for the talk link.
* src/404.htm: Update pageMike Gerwitz2019-01-161-13/+21
| | | | | This is a bit less abrasive and a tad bit more helpful. As I've mentioned in previous commits, the goal of this site has since changed.
* Redirect old postsMike Gerwitz2019-01-161-0/+69
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | We have two sitautions to account for: 1. Old posts had both uppercase and lowercase letters in slugs; and 2. Some ids changed. Lighttpd can't convert to lowercase and having a bunch of separate redirects in my webserver configuration for the id changes is messy. So, this script is intended to be called only when a post contains an uppercase character in the path. I had wanted to avoid _any_ sort of dynamic scripts. Oh well. All other redirects are handled in the websevrer configuration (which isn't part of this repo atm).
* Generate slug from post filenamesMike Gerwitz2019-01-162-10/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Rather than having Pandoc generate the id, which has the potential to change over time and cause 404s, let's just generate the slug from the filename so that the ids will never change. This also solves the awkward question of what the filename should be, since it was previously something arbitrary. This mass rename was accomplished via this simple shell script: for p in *.meta; do slug=$( recsel -P slug "$p" | xargs basename ) mv -v "${p/.meta/.md}" "${p:0:10}-$slug.md" done with minor manual tweaks where I saw fit. Of course, now I have some pretty long filenames, which is undesirable. The next step is to compare it with the slugs currently on mikegerwitz.com and make them match. That's the next commit, and should be pretty simple.
* Majority of work on generation of new static siteMike Gerwitz2019-01-1122-0/+2808
I didn't originally intend for all of this to be in a single commit. But here we are. I don't have the time to split these up more cleanly; this project is taking more time than I originally hoped that it would. This is a new static site generator. More information to follow in the near future (hopefully in the form of an article), but repo2html is now removed. See code comments for additional information; I tried to make it suitable as a learning resource for others. It is essentially a set of shell scripts with a fairly robust build for incremental generation. The site has changed drastically, reflecting that its purpose has changed over the years: it is now intended for publishing quality works (or at least I hope), not just a braindump. This retains most of the text of the original pages verbatim, with the exception of the About page. Other pages may have their text modified in commits that follow. Enhancements to follow in future commits.
