I was commenting recently the idea of digital gardens, and a bit after that I realised how easy would be to have my own.
This site is already some markdown files on a directory, so I added a sub-directory and some templates to make Hugo render them pretty –with a table of contents, for example–, and that was it.
So you can go to the notes section, and see how it looks. Currently there are a couple of things over there:
- How to setup a Minecraft server with Podman, because we run one at home and I want to remember how things work in a couple of weeks.
- A transcription of our White Box sessions, because we have been playing a table-top RPG at home and I thought our adventure was kind of neat.
So is not that different to what I had when I was using
vim-wiki –although I ended not using that one–, with the main difference being that when I update this website, the notes are made public.
The core idea behind a digital garden is learning in public, but in my case I think it is going to be more like an easy and quick way of publishing some work in progress content –a bit like a personal wiki–, or for those things where a blog post is not really the best format.
Time will tell if I keep using it!
