pwa is such an undervalued good name!

progress

microsoft got github. sooner or later, ms distortion field will take over and screw everything up. technically speaking. in practice, this is what happened every single time. not to mention they might still be doing EEE.

i won’t wait for that to happen. i’ll migrate out before it happens! yes, this site is on jekyll and github pages.

and, on top of it, i want to also make the site work offline, in every sense. so far, the only platform i’ve found that gets close to pass my simple test is gatsbyjs. just load their website on android. activate airplane mode. reload the page. every page you’ve visited will simply work!

next step is making the whole site to work too, if you stay long enough on it for download to finish. also, there’s not so much to download. images can be progressive (load per request only). text can fit in a few mb at most. a big offline button can be offered (rather than the useless cookie one).

the biggest single reason i still haven’t migrated is i want to make sure there isn’t any other better option… still didn’t get there.

as for the hosting, it’ll now be on gitlab and netlify. consolidated hosts.

nocode would be beautiful, but i don’t believe so much in it. couldn’t find anything nearly good enough. rather stick with low code.
