Creating New Blog Posts in Emacs

I use the Emacs thermonuclear word processor for everything in my life that has to do with editing text. It’s extensibility is unmatched by any other editor out there; if there’s a feature missing that would make your life easier, then pop open the hood and add it! While it’s not the prettiest language to work with, Emacs Lisp (or elisp) is a pretty straight forward, yet deeply powerful extension language.

Hugo: Only Show Content Under a Given Section

One thing I initially found strange of Hugo was that it listed every piece of content on the front page - as if they were all blog posts. Luckily Hugo is flexible enough to change that behaviour without having to do any hacking. This blog post is mostly so that I remember how to do this in the future. To limit your front page to show only content from a certain sub-directory, say, “post”, edit your index.

Playing With Bootstrap

You may have noticed that the appearance of my website has changed, starting yesterday. This is because I wanted to find an excuse to mess around with bootstrap, an excellent package of javascript and css for making front-end website design easy. For the time being I’m sticking with one of the sample layouts, but I plan to play around with it in the future, so expect to see some changes!
