I used to generate my website by piecing together html templates and pages. I stopped doing that and started using kcgi.
Today, I switched back to a static site. It is generated from markdown using just sh, lowdown, awk, cat, etc. The link is to the page on the site about the site (meta) and includes a link to the source that makes the site.
I am using stagit with no option to clone, but I’ll get one set up tomorrow and probably tomorrow too I’ll post a version with none of my assets or css so the initial git clone doesn’t take forever.
The small web and weird web are overlapping uses of the Worldwide Web that harkens back to Web 1.0: personally-owned and non-corporate domains, text-based, and interlinked with federation or webrings.
