My notes on what packages I absolutely need to install to maintain this site.
27 January 2022
I recently got a new laptop and decided to move to Manjaro, an Arch
Linux derivative. I had some frustration with setting it up, and getting
the tools I need to maintain this website installed. Documented below
are the steps I took to solve it.
TIL my site is a JAMStack site.
10 September 2021
Today I learned that my site which has been basically the same since
2016 is a JAMStack site. Although it was coined in 2015 by
Netlify, it seems to have become really popular in the past 2 years as a
term. I’m told it’s more of a theoretical framework than anything else.
Adding Search to My Static Blog Using AWS Lambda and SQLite
09 July 2021
I always wanted to have search on my site, but it’s statically hosted,
so I can’t have any dynamic content on it. I recently resolved that by
creating a little tiny lambda function on AWS that queries a SQLite
database hosted on S3. Here I’ll walk you through how I created the
back-end for it, and in some later posts I’ll include details on
calculating the cost.
Finding Jekyll Posts to Update With Cover Images
10 January 2021
I recently updated my site to make use of cover images on the post

cover attribute in their front-matter.
