Today I’d like to talk to you about how I archive articles I read online and how I find them again.
I’ve found myself repeatedly in situations where I wanted to reference an article I knew I read, but couldn’t find it anymore. Be it that I didn’t remember the right search terms or that the article had gone offline. I searched for solutions to my problem, but could only find webservices, nothing that would allow me to keep an archive on my local computer.
It took me a long time to collect all the bits and pieces I needed to make editing remote files with Emacs work the way I want, with a simple command that works via SSH. I hope I can save you some time by stitching it here together into a tutorial. I assume you use use-package in my examples.
Emacs server & TRAMP We start with Emacs’s good old inbuilt server.
I wanted to create a WireGuard VPN with 2 subnets in different physical places, each with their own server. I couldn’t find an example how to do that, so I wrote this one.
Introduction This HowTo is Linux specific.
I’m going to use the IP range fd69::/48 for the VPN, fd69:0:0:1::/64 for subnet 1 and fd69:0:0:2::/64 for subnet 2. I’m going to call the server of subnet 1 server1, its first client client1a, the second one client1b and so on.
In this blogpost I describe what I did to get AsciiDoc support into Gitea. If you want more than syntax highlighting and basic formatting, Gitea has to be patched unfortunately(this issue has already been reported). But I think most people will only need to edit 1 configuration file and are done.
Asciidoctor or AsciiDoc? Asciidoctor has inbuilt support for highlight.js, the solution Gitea uses and is therefore the best choice in most scenarios.
