Over about

Welcome to yet another Hugo blog!

Moonstreet is the name of the street where I live, together with my lovely girlfriend. I am a devops engineer by day that just can't stop thinking about technology in the night.

The opinions expressed in this blog are my own personal opinions and do not represent my employer’s view in any way.

About this website

These are my notes about the things I learn and think I worthy of sharing with the world. This website is made with the following tools:

Here are the steps to create this site:

1sudo dnf install -y hugo
2mkdir ~/blog && cd ~/blog
3hugo new site moonstreet
4cd themes
5git init
6git clone https://github.com/kimcc/hugo-theme-noteworthy.git
7cd ..
8echo 'theme = "hugo-theme-noteworthy"' >> config.toml
9hugo serve -D

Then in a new terminal window:

1hugo new posts/hugo.md

And then paste this content in hugo.md.

Push to Github and publish with Netlify

When publishing, make sure your post is not set to 'draft'. Run a final hugo to build the site. Then commit and push.

On a new computer
