My intentions for the site are to use it as a public domain commonplace book - posting links, comments, discoveries, questions and answers about the things that interest me. These things include the Christian faith; God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit; Bible software; photography; coffee (roasting, preparing and drinking; fountain pens (and inks, nibs, paper and legible writing); bullet journalling and disc-bound notebooks; and computers.
My thoughts are to run it as a simple blog-style site with the most recent content at the top and some sort of archive or search facility and category or tag function.1
After pondering a few different content management systems (CMS) I decided I wanted a flat file CMS. The main rationale is that content is stored, managed and accessed in folders and files rather than a database. I like the simplicity and clarity of that! In theory it should be quicker to serve pages and also means I can create and edit content with a simple text editor rather than requiring some database and admin/access panel.
I've opted for
Hugo Grav at this stage. A copy of the site is stored in Dropbox Nextcloud and can be copied to my domain using rsync over ssh or FTP. I was using Hugo for quite a while but it meant I coul only publish new content from home. By switching to Grav I can create posts through the admin panel with any internet connection.
The word egeiro is a Greek word that means to raise up, to arise, to revive, to lift. I first came across the word around 15 years ago and it has always held some appeal to me since.
