Static hosting: jekyll, forestry, github and cloudflare
This post contains a quick summary describing how this website is actually made.
The whole website is purely made of static assets. It is versioned via git. Hosting of static pages is provided by Github Pages.
The software running under the hood is Jekyll. It allows to quickly build static websites starting from plaintext Markdown files.
From time to time I enjoy using a CMS and writing contents directly from the browser. Forestry fits perfectly in the above flow, as it directly supports Jekyll and git.
Finally, Cloudflare content delivery network takes care of caching and last-hop TLS encapsulation.
