Ported to NextJS1/16/2023
Well, I did it again. I ported this blog to a new stack, this time to NextJS. I haven't written much in the past few years, since Twitter had sucked up a lot of my writing energy. I was never very comfortable on Twitter, though. The idea of going viral filled me with dread and I automatically deleted old posts. Twitter seemed to encourage the worst in people. Now that tech community there has been blown up in catastrophic fashion, I once again find myself thinking about blogging and writing long form posts.
The most recent incarnation had been a Python-based markdown site (Hyde) that I had forked to add a few features. This time, I found that NextJS had all the features I needed for static site generation, and I could use Typescript. Generation times are fast, too.
I found this helpful when figuring out the static generation.
