Why I Changed the Site's Build System

Published: Thu Apr 16 2020

I started off this website in Common Lisp then to org-mode and now finally to a mixture of the two?! Well, okay, not really a mixture - more like a semi-similar adaptation. Okay, that's not really true either… Lemme just explain it simply: the new build system using Emacs org-mode, make, and a small Fennel script. Why is this better than using plain old org?

Dragora, a Philosophy of Life

This new way of thought is fairly interesting and something that I find quite valuable.

Dragora as a concept comes in 4 parts: freedom, independence, community, simplicity. Each of these parts are valid concepts in computing but also in personal life, as I've found out. Let's unpack.

Why Org?

Published: Sun Jan 07 2018

There are a ton of options when it comes to creating a website; from designing it to picking tools for it to hosting it, there is a plethora! As a professional web developer, I know this first hand. In fact, there is a painful sickness called JavaScript Fatigue that effects tons of developers because there are so many friggin' options! Given all these choices, why on Earth did I choose to use org-mode to create this site?! Read More…
