My personal blog, hosted at Written in Clojure using Conjure and Neovim.

It’s a static site rendered from AsciiDoc, feel free to copy and modify the code if you think you’ll find it useful!


  • make build - Render the blog to static HTML in output.

  • make propel - Start a prepl server with Propel and write the port to .prepl-port.

  • make depot - Check for outdated dependencies with Depot.

  • make test - Execute all of the tests.

  • make serve - Host the output directory with Python’s http.server module.

  • make watch - Rebuild when any source files change, requires entr to be installed and make propel already running.

  • make build-container - Build the docker container and tag it as blog.

  • make run-container - Run the container locally, hosts on port 9898.

  • make setup-deploy - Configures git to deploy to my host.

  • make deploy - Deploys the current master to my host.


This blog runs on (referral link!)

The container ends up being just the static rendered HTML served by nginx hosted in Dokku. The server directory contains the nginx configuration template, the $PORT that Dokku selects is added in at startup.


Feel free to fork this project and adapt it for your own needs! You’ll need to replace my domain in a few places ( as well as my name. I’d prefer you to delete my posts and write your own too…​

You’ll probably want to edit the nginx configuration to remove the redirects I added for my own legacy blog reasons as well.

Just have a look around the source and grep for some things you spot that are related to myself, feel free to do whatever you’d like with the code.

If you get a lot out of forking this project I’d love to hear about it.
