Automate hugo

TL;DR Mid 2018 I switched my blog from Wordpress to Hugo. Main reason was performance and that I can use Asciidoctor to write the posts. What happened the last 18 months? I stayed with the theme I selected 2018, but I tweaked it a little bit. So I added lunr to implement searching, changed all scripts and fonts from CDN to local (privacy and tracking), updated Bootstrap 3 to 4. Working with Bootstrap was quite fun, I haven’t done a lot of HTML or CSS the last years, but the grid and css classes from Bootstrap are working without checking each change on all browsers and are responsive.

New Blog Engine

I switched my blog to Hugo the last days. After nearly 12 years with WordPress, I needed something new. Why did I drop WordPress, one of the most used blog engines in the world? Most used means always most interesting for bad guys. Dynamic pages are slower and can contain more vulnerabilities than static pages (which Hugo generates). Hugo supports git, so I have version control in my posts and design. I can start a small web server locally and test the posts: hugo server -D and the most convenient thing: I can use VIM for editing. VIM is THE editor for me, I tried using it with vim-anywhere with my browsers, but it’s still not the same.

Here for example embedding a video to a blog post. Prerequist is that you’ve no fear to change some html source. Upload the video to the Files application in Connections All blog readers need to have access to the video file Easiest way is to upload to Community files and use it in the Community blog directly in this community Open the file within IBM Connections Docs Viewer and click on ABOUT – Get Links Copy the “Link to download file:” to the clipboard Now create a new blog post (add heading, tags, additional text)

Last week a new blog editor for offline blogging has announced IBM Connections blogs support. Blogsy is a nice tool and costs about 4€ in apple app store. My first tests are not very good, because Blogsy 3.3 has problems with multiple Blogs in IBM Connections. Only one day later, after some comments in Blogsy Blog, a new version can be downloaded from Appstore. Blogsy 3.3.1 can handle multiple Connections blogs, but the App crashes right after uploading a new post. I hope they will make a updated version soon. I enjoy offline blog editors very much, because i can prepare articles on train and upload them later after i found a free WLAN.

Viel zu tun

Irgendwie komme ich im Moment nicht zum Bloggen. Mich interessieren so viele Dinge und ich beschäftige mich mit verschiedenen Projekten gleichzeitig. Joomla: Ich überlege, ob ich nicht WordPress aufgebe und zu Joomla wechsle, da habe ich dann doch mehr Möglichkeiten Artikel zu posten, die man auch sauber verlinken kann. Ich bereite eine Nagios Presentation vor. Schwerpunkt wird das http://www.edcom.de/edcom/web/edcomcms.nsf/id/DE_Deep_in_the_Use_Monitoring_-laestiges_uebel_oder_sinnvolle_Prophylaxe_Netzwerkueberwachung_mit?open&l=DE&ccm=010008[Monitoring von Lotus Domino]. Hierzu nutze ich Ubuntu, SNMPTT und ein paar weitere Tools. Irgendwie hab ich SNMPTT mit den Anleitungen nicht zum Laufen gebracht. Das Init-Skript funktioniert überhaupt nicht. Auch nicht, wenn ich /etc/init.d/skeleton nach functions kopiere.
