I’ve spent the last week in the mountains, skiing, relaxing and eating well.
I also took some time rewriting my blog. The old blog relies on client certificates to enter the admin area. This worked like a charm while I had the certificates on hand, but now, 8 years, 4 computers and a whole lot of reinstalls later, they are nowhere to be found.
The new blog is written using Svelte (because why not?) and currently only lives on my laptop.
I’ve written a new admin UI and established a proxy connection to my CouchDB instance through a SSH tunnel.
All in all, I’ve gotten to the point where I can write new posts. (Yay!!)
The new blog won’t be online for a while though since I need to write a real proxy backend for the database and set up some proper authentication for the admin UI first.
There might be screenshots in a few day.
Here’s to hoping it doesn’t take another 8 years for me to post again! =)
