Combined RSS with fulltext

This weekend, Jochen T. contacted me with an interesting question about Hugo and the theme I am using for this blog: I don’t understand how I can create a “normal” feed, I have searched for help, but found nothing.

Script for Testing-Farm

Yesterday evening somebody desperately fought in despair with Packer, the younger sister of Vagrant. The goal was to create a testing farm of n machines for Virtualbox and make them accessible via SSH for further automated software testing/rollout.

Hugo as Web-Developing Platform

Making of blog.jakobs.systems At the beginning of the (first?) Corona lockdown in March 2020, I was advised during an nightly Jitsi meeting by a befriended admin from Hamburg about giving Hugo a chance. Probably just after I dropped a rant about Rapidweaver, my previous static site generator on the Mac. The idea needed to grow for almost half a year, till August, when I finally found a test balloon for Hugo: My personal blog and if everything succeeds, my official website, which is slowly getting rusty.
