Tools used for this website
- This website is built with Org Mode with some code written in Ruby to generate list of posts and other “dynamic” content, see the next section for details. The code is slowly being migrated to Emacs lisp.
- All text editing happens in Emacs, while Gimp and Darktable are used for editing pictures.
- Technologies listed also in: humans.txt 1
I use literate programming extensively for:
- Controlling the publishing process. I use emacs lisp to trigger publication and deployment. The code is embedded in some of the pages of this website. If you are interested in these functions, you want to look at project-specification.org
- Generating “dynamic” content. Similar to Jekyll, I use Ruby and Emacs lisp code to read metadata from each page and generate “dynamic” content, such as the list of notes. If you are interested, you want to look at:
- Generating content. Various pages use literate programming to generate content available, such as the list of books I read, data about COVID-19 in Italy. The page literate-programming references.org lists all the pages using literate programming on this website.
- This page describes the overall setup and publishing project: project specification
- Each page links to an HTML renderization of the corresponding Org Mode page: look for the link in the footer!
- All the website is kept with git. The repo is available here: https://www.ict4g.net/gitea/adolfo/home

At its beginnings the World Wide Web was about sharing content, rather than collecting and harvesting data. For many, I believe, this is what the web should still be now.
I do not have any interest in tracking you and steal your data. Therefore, this website does not implement any tracking technique2.
I regularly analyze the web server logs using goaccess and a script I wrote in Ruby (which mostly replicates what goaccess does). This allows me to get data about the number of visitors, the pages most visited, 404s, types of browsers used to access the website, countries the requests originate from, and, least but not last, attempts to hack into my website (more frequent that I thought).
