I'll agree with you on all counts. I (mostly) en­joy my sta­tic site at the mo­ment, plus it helps that the whole work­flow is free (which is su­per im­por­tant to me).

Static sites too can get un­wieldy, just like any CMS to be hon­est, but the level of ab­strac­tion is far, far less com­pared to some­thing like WordPress or Ghost. The con­trol I have is nice to­day, but what hap­pens when I no longer have the time or in­cli­na­tion to main­tain a big pud­dle of APIs and a bunch of mov­ing parts?

I par­tic­u­larly like Ghost and re­cently rec­om­mended it to a friend. It costs ₹/month to run but my headache is pretty much re­duced to back­ups and up­grades, and the odd un­usual fea­ture re­quest which I'd have to write man­u­ally. I don't mind.

Another friend is mov­ing to Ghost (to be fair, from some­thing like Medium) as well even though they are tech­ni­cally com­pe­tent. They'd like to fo­cus on con­tent, not babysit­ting the setup. And I com­pletely get it!

fire­fox-send-news

📔 Note

Yesterday, I faced an is­sue send­ing a PDF file through my NextCloud provider. I don't like to self-host some­thing so crit­i­cal be­cause it has my con­tacts, cal­en­dar, and files. Unfortunately, my cloud host provider runs ver­sion 18 whereas it ap­pears to be fixed in ver­sion 19.

Previously, I had used Firefox Send for this but it had been shut down tem­porar­ily due to con­cerns around mal­ware be­ing sent us­ing the ser­vice. I asked the Fosstodon com­mu­nity for an al­ter­na­tive as I was un­happy not be­ing able to pass­word-pro­tect or set an ex­pi­ra­tion date on WeTransfer or Dropbox.

Very quickly, I dis­cov­ered Lufi. I like the user-ex­pe­ri­ence as tried on a pub­lic in­stance, and will self host it for sure. Even more so now that Firefox Send has been of­fi­cially shut down, as many in the pri­vacy com­mu­nity pre­dicted would hap­pen.



mdn-con­tri­bu­tion

📔 Note

I had al­ways de­sired a con­tri­bu­tion to the MDN doc­u­men­ta­tion. It is a fan­tas­tic re­source that has helped me im­mensely through the years.

The idea that some­thing I con­tribute can ben­e­fit hun­dreds or thou­sands of de­vel­op­ers in mak­ing bet­ter in­formed de­ci­sions gives me so much joy.

This fi­nally came true to­day with a small im­ple­men­ta­tion note around how Firefox for Android cur­rently doesn't han­dle a datalist due to a re­gres­sion in­tro­duced in v79.

My ex­pe­ri­ence was very pleas­ant and rather quick. I would love to do this again! 😊

On my sta­tic site, I use Forestry CMS to write ar­ti­cles. There's also Netlify CMS (not af­fil­i­ated to Netlify), but I find Forestry to have a re­mark­ably bet­ter UI/UX. That's my rec­om­men­da­tion. The ini­tial setup can be te­dious, but for a sim­ple blog, it might not be.
