About this site

This website is generated using some thicks I find interesting, for example, in the index page the tree is created using a shell command, namely tree. The funny part is that this code is actually part of the HTML file, and the command is run on the build process. For some commands I included it before the output, for fun.

The main thing here is the template.sh script that injects shell commands directly into the file, so I can use simple programs to help creating the content. Do not use it in production, it is not secure, but fine for this simple website that I have control.

This shell script also can be found on my github:

template.sh

I hope you find this interesting, if so take a look at the source code on my GitHub account.


Here's an example:
