Another small thing I wanted to add to this revamped website built on Jekyll is sitemaps.org sitemap.xml support. I did this 13 years ago on the Pebble version of my blog by writing a plugin for Pebble in Java. Fortunately Jekyll has an official plugin already which is found at: https://github.com/jekyll/jekyll-sitemap.

For my blog and for my CV I have a number of shortened URL’s For example http://u.bren.cc/github points to my GitHub profile. Until now I’ve used a very nice open-source solution called YOURLS which I Dockerized and ran on my home server. YOURLS provides a great admin UI for creating URL’s and a nice reporting dashboard that shows hit counts and geocodes requesters.

I'm Bren, a software engineer in Bangkok, Thailand. I love building things, especially software but also tinker with hardware, audio engineering, 3D printing and other media. I work as a Senior Cloud Architect with AWS where I help enterprises in the region build things too.
