Building this website

Starting out

What spurred me to redo my website and blog is the fact that I got accepted to RC and they encourage us to learn openly. This is something that I've wanted to do for a long time anyway, so I felt that now is the time to get this website up and running.

Basically, I know nothing (or very little) about web development, and would like to get up to speed where at least I am comfortable adjusting my website. I plan on using emacs to the extent possible, and I'll put the source of how I build the website together with the source of the actual notes and static pages + assets online at src.hut and eventually building it there.

How to structure posts

Each org mode file will have some options relating to information which will be taken care of when the site is published. In practice, this means that the resulting HTML will take into account this options somehow.

Posts should have the following functionality

  • Time created
  • Latest time changed
  • Tags

and rely as much as possible on already defined options of org mode.
