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.

Just installed Known CMS

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.

My weekend plan - Trying CircleCI for CI/CD and Known CMS

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.

Should I try the Known CMS that follow IndieWeb principles?

This month I spent lot of effort in turning this blog IndieWeb compliant. So far things are on right track. I was able to configure the linkback Drupal module and it is very good. There are many other things which are still pending like managing photos, checkins and webmentions from social media sites like twitter.

I am becoming a firm believer of #indieweb these days

Couple of days back I posted my POSSE plan for this website. One thing I managed to do was to make some changes on the site and posting quite regularly on this site and syndicating on linkedin and twitter.

I also made some changes on the site so that the images I upload are properly picked up on both of these social sites using the Open Graph and twitter cards.
