Jekyll is the generator to make this blog/static site. It uses the Minima theme with no customizations, and is hosted on a Digital Ocean VPS. I use Visual Studio Code to write the posts, the command line jekyll serve -w to preview it, JEKYLL_ENV=production jekyll build to generate the files, and an rsync to publish.

This site started out as a Harp site, and in late 2020, I converted it to Jekyll releatively easily, as the posts were already in Markdown, though I did have to convert some of the HTML using Turndown (there’s a good Turndown plugin for Visual Studio Code).

The SSL certificate is generated by Let’s Encrypt and is renewed automatically, though I check it every 3 months just in case it’s not.
