I created my first personal website around 1996 in the now defunct Geocities. Later I maintained a personal website in asturlinux.org, the local Linux user group that I co-founded. Then I moved to just blogging in blogpost.com and my personal website was no longer maintained. After many years of neglect, today I spent a bit of time setting up a new personal website using Github Pages.
There is not much to be seen here for now. I may eventually add some content. For now here are some links:
- An archived version of the abandoned website from asturlinux.org (in Spanish), which has not been updated since 2007.
- The blog that I wrote during my decade living in Sydney, Australia, between 2012 and 2022.
This new website is hosted in Github Pages. A few technical details: the website is completely static. Setting it up using the instructions from Github was very easy. I’m using VSCode to edit the contents because I want to get a bit more familiar with that IDE (I mostly use Jetbrains IDEA in my daily job). I installed a few VSCode plugins for Jenkins and Github. The only hiccups so far were:
I was experiencing some errors when running
bundle install. The problem was that the version of the
bundlegem was a bit oldie. I ran
gem install bundleragain followed by
bundle --full-indexand that solved the problem.
The Jekyll plugin for VSCode was failing to start the Jekyll server, but the error message was not obvious. After a bit of Googling, I discovered that it aparently it needs an additional dependency. I ran
bundle add webrickand the problem disappeared.
