chronica is the name I've given this site that you're currently on. This is the third large iteration of the site. It holds a small blog, a wiki for things I'm interested in and work on, and an integration to my time tracking system ándaga. The focus of this site has been and will continue to be a focus on functional minimalism and tools. I hope that everything on this site is intentional. It will serve as a continually growing place both in how it is made and the content that is displayed here.
How is it made
I have a full blog post on how this site is generated, but in short, it's content is written in markdown, then enriched by mdoc, and then transformed into HTML using flexmark. This is all done with Scala and Ammonite scripts, built with GitHub Actions, and hosted with Zeit Now.
I also must give credit where credit is due. Below are a few sites that I recommend and that have highly influenced chronica.
- wiki.xxiivv.com Devine has radically changed the way I think about development. His philosophy and approach to development has taught me that it's ok to go against he grain and to simply create. His ecosystem of tools are a testimony of productivity and creativity that in my opinion flies in the face of many modern day trends.
- avenier.now.sh Josh's pursuit of functional minimalism (my interpretation of his work) inspires me to ignore the noise and focus on what matters. Ironically, the current iterations of our sites are quite similar in the way they look, which was not intentional.
- macwright.org Tom's site is a reminder that I don't have to settle for giant sites full of trackers and adds to find quality content.
