Awesome lists There’s a relatively new artifact on GitHub repositories. It’s not code but a special plaintext document: the awesome list. The idea is simple: to build a list of awesome resources about any topic and treat it like an open source code. That could mean tasks like: maintaining this idea constantly reviewed and improved (e.g. using the issues or even the repo wiki). keeping an inclusion and ordering criteria (what’s awesome for the list author).
Static site generators (SSG) As you can imagine, a static site generator gets some input text to produce a complete web static site. It seems a good idea to produce a static web page for a static content. It is analogous to compile source code to create a binary executable. Using the experience from software development, SSG authors use, emulate and get inspiration from tools and best practices in this field.
I use lists You can see I don’t follow anyone. I use public and private lists instead. While this can be seen as asocial behaviour by some, for me it’s a good practice since I have everything grouped by topic. I don’t buy following everyone for the sake of getting more followers. I want a good signal/noise ratio and try to keep up with the content of each list. It’s a good way to cope with the information overload.
