Tasks included:

  • decrease TTLs for the A/AAAA records
    • it was already 3600, I don't think I will have a need of moving faster as I don't have to shut down GitHub pages while DNS is propagating.
  • go through source repositories
    • apparently 4
    • archive unused there are too many, so a new emphasis on source
    • open issues linking here
      • pin them
  • actually move

Why GitHub?

It was the first Git host I and probably many others registered on and I think the first one to provide a service like GitHub Pages, which I think will be the biggest problem here, but luckily Jekyll should be quite portable even if I have to build it by hand.

Why not GitHub

They are US based and have customers and practices due to it that I find problematic.

Possible solutions

I need to research them:

  • Experimental product somewhere that has request to not post it publicly without talking with their team?
  • Neocities

Potential solutions in the future

Not solutions

https://developers.cloudflare.com/distributed-web/ipfs-gateway/updating-for-ipfs/ causes HTML5Validator errors for me, so no testing IPFS even for fun.

Status update: only this repository remains at GitHub as I haven't decided where to move it or investigated the options. Suggestions and reviews etc. welcome.

#154 tracks Mikaela.info linking to various places and my activity in them.

https://neocities.org/ is probably great for static sites (havn't tried yet) and also free for small sites. But i think they are worth supporting. They host on IPFS too!

Thanks, I added it to my list to investigate (on a better time).

I have been focusing too much on other things and too little on my actual goals and things I really want to do, so I am not sure when I will get around to it though. It's almost 02 am for me at the moment.

New option: Codeberg pages https://pages.codeberg.org/ .


Codeberg Pages. Static Pages for your Projects.

Create a repo named 'pages' in your user account or org, push static content, HTML, style, fonts, images.

Share your rendered content via:

https://pages.codeberg.org/<username>/

Welcome to Codeberg.org!

This looks like it would currently be a subdirectory, but I think it's worth following.

https://uberspace.de/en/ I read looked into earlier today for privacytoolsIO/privacytools.io#1290 also seems like a strong candidate and due to being paid (and be low-income friendly due to "pay as you think is right", it might also be more reliable option.

I didn't read so deeply to see if they had documentation on how to integrate Jekyll, but I can do that by myself and I am sure that they support something like it as they have link to Hugo in their footer.

Unlike other candidates (partially excluding IPFS), they would give me an onion.
