In the last7days series on this blog I’ll revisit interesting content from twitter from the last 7 days and I’ll add further comments or responses to feedback which I got. The list will have about 3-5 pieces of content to keep it crisp and I hope you like what you see!
1) Better inclusion of Tweets into Hugo documents by @ardithbetz
She presents a better way to include tweets into Hugo documents, which I already use on this blog as well. I am very happy with the toolset which Hugo gives me for good looking sites, where you can keep the sourcen in Github and connect it to an automated CI/CD flow.
For this blog I use Buddy.works as a CI/CD system and it comes very close ot my idea of an ideal deployment flow (just taking care of my own blog and some web pages). I also tried e.g. hosting Jenkins on my own Synology box: while this works, it requires too much mental bandwidth to keep it running (since running Jenkins is not my mainb business).
Dear Jenkins fans: please don’t kill me!
2) Marktext, a new elegant markdown editor by @marktextapp
Marktext – Elegant Markdown Editor for Linux, macOS, Windows https://t.co/0GfLi2xRR6 > looks neat, will try out— Daniel Koller (@dakoller) December 28, 2021
Marktext is a new & free markdown editor, which I am currently trying out to write the posts for my hugo-based blog. It has a reduced UI, which puts complete focus to the writing process itself. (At first glance, a very helpful feature of the product)
3) A hundred things I learned writing my first technical book by @viebel
Writing a book in many areas is different from e.g. wirting a blog post and for people, who are curious, the author lists things to ideally think about before starting the writing process.
Resist the temptation to impress your readers with “cool stuff” if you think it might confuse them. is just one of the more surprising ones.
I am happy to get feedback from you!
