Playing with Huginn: "Your agents are standing by!"

"Huginn is a system for building agents and performing automated tasks online." Here's how I found it, made a personal newsletter (and some other stuff) with it. Next time: Docker setup....

Leaving Evernote for Joplin

I have been looking for an Evernote replacement for the longest time. It's a nice tool, but it has some features and limitations that irritated me: no markdown support (the HTML in the editor often got messy), no end-to-end encryption or control over my data, and a restrictive device limit and online-only requirement in the free version. While one could argue I could have paid to fix some of those problems, I didn't want to. The only restriction that really bothered me was the two-device limit. I had no use for more space or extra features: in the 5+ years...

Later, I'd managed to replace my Bonobo Git Server with Gitea. The last piece was to move a custom app - which was written in .NET and needed to be re-written to run on Ubuntu. (And it took forever to find time to do that.) So after I had my app re-written with .NET Core 2[1] MVC, using Vue, Bulma, TypeScript and some arcane Webpack stuff that...

Running a git repo site on nginx on Ubuntu

Last time around I wrote about migrating my webs to an Ubuntu VM. One of the few things that were left to migrate was my private git repo hosting site. I'd used Bonobo Git Server and had always been satisfied with it. Since it doesn't target .Net Core, I didn't see any reasonable way to run it on Ubuntu. After some searching, I'd fortunately stumbled upon Gitea. To get it up and running for the first time wasn't that difficult. I just had to: sudo useradd -m gitea wget https://dl.gitea.io/gitea/1.1.3/gitea-1.1.3-linux-amd64...
