A wise man once said that nothing really dies, it just comes back in a new form. Then he died.

Stand by for reincarnation.

Comments Powered by GitHub

on in meta • 3 min read

After seeing this article the other morning about replacing the Disqus comments on a blog powered by a static site generator (like this one) with comments backed by a GitHub issue and some front-end JavaScript to load and display them, I thought it would be fun to implement something similar. First I only built the code for displaying comments, similar to the aforementioned article, but I decided to take it one step further by allowing users to submit comments directly from my site.

The Pretty Good Minor Update

It’s been about six months since the last time I redesigned the site, and while I didn’t want to redesign it yet again, I felt it could use a little update to make sure everything’s still good.

Hello, World!

on in meta • 1 min read

Hello again, world! Welcome to the third iteration of my website. Originally my site was hosted on GitHub pages and only available at shadowfacts.github.io. I wrote a couple of tutorials on using Forge to mod 1.6.4, but never really finished anything other than super basic setup/recipes. Later, after I got shadowfacts.net, I decided to set up a propper website using WordPress. I copied over all of the old tutorials from my old GitHub pages site, but never really did anything else with it. After my website being offline for almost a year, I’ve finally decided to switch back to GitHub for the simplicity (also I <3 Jekyll). Using Jekyll, I’ve got a structure in place that I can use to easily publish tutorials in a structured format. There is one tutorial series that I’m currently writing and that is Forge Mods in 1.9, and hopefully more series will follow.
