I am obsessed with location tracking. I started using Foursquare more than 10 years ago on my Blackberry phone. I loved that app. It is still one of my favourite application. It was very popular for couple of years but then after the smart phone revolution (post Blackberry phase) I guess Foursquare lost its shine but they came back with their new service Swarm. I have not really restarted using Foursquare to the fullest yet however since the last few months I have been hooked to the IndieWeb principles.
I am trying very hard to post everything on my website and syndicating it elsewhere - POSSE. It is a good way to own your data and I don't see any reason why people should not follow IndieWeb principles.
Coming to the point of my obsession with GPS tracking. I do track lot of my actual…

I installed Known CMS last night quickly. It took me 10 mins flat to install it on my webfaction hosting. So far I like it.
Just couple of days back I setup Hugo which is a static site generator written in Go Language. I really like it.
Although this blog is my primary site which I will continue to use as it is a Drupal based site.
This is my post on my Known site: http://www.sagar.ravi.pro/2018/checked-into-dental-appointment
Let me check if webmentions work or not :)

Just before the start of the weekend I planned to work on Known CMS and Circle CI but things turned out slightly differently or I should say a lot. I ended up setting up a Hugo website and used Netlify to continuously deploy it on https://hugo.ravi.pro which is thew new subdomain that I setup.
What is Hugo?
It is framework for building website using text files. Similar to Jekyll but the interesting thing is that it is written in Go and that is what intrigued me to explore it further. I made a posted the video on my youtube channel where I shared about Go language and my intention to learn it. In the past few weeks I was quite busy with other work and I couldn't think of a project where I can use Go and Hugo was the perfect project to learn Go.
Funny thing is that setting up a site in…

There was a phase in my life when I used to do some side projects quite regularly. It really gave me satisfaction to build something. When I was kid I used to learn how to solder and make small electrical projects. When I bought my first computer those electrical projects turned into digital projects and I still miss playing with resistors, transistors and capacitors but you can't do everything at the same time in life. May be I will go back to electronics later in my life but till then I have to expand my knowledge in digital space.
This week I have 2 projects in mind. Little ambitious but possible certainly. I want to try Known CMS which follows IndieWeb principles and hopefully inline with my POSSE plan. Most likely I will setup a subdomain on ravisagar.in or ravi.pro but not sure…
