Making linking to my posts easier

For anyone who’s spoken to me, they’ll know I’m very quick to link people to posts I’ve written. That’s not in terms of pushing the things I’ve written (usually), but also being able to retrieve the links as quick as possible.…

Building search into a Hugo website

2021-09-12 5 minutes #programming #self-hosting #website
