pkb — Personal Knowledge Base

pkb is a small Rust application that allows you to efficiently publish a collection of Markdown files. I run my instance at linkedlist.org.

Build Status

Configuration

  • Copy the Rocket.sample.toml file to Rocket.toml and fill in your own details
  • Link the directory with your Markdown files in it. E.g. ln -s ~/Dropbox/My\ Markdown\ Files pages
  • Start the server, cargo run and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/pages
  • You should create Markdown file called home.md. This file will be shown as the homepage: http://127.0.0.1:8000

Deployment

  1. Build a release binary: cargo build --release --locked, it will be created at target/release/pkb.
  2. Copy the binary, public directory, and your Rocket.toml to your server (this assumes your build machine and server are binary compatible).

History

pkb was originally implemented in 2015 as a Ruby on Rails application. The ruby branch contains the code before it was rewritten in Rust in 2022.
