Yay Fluid Images

Yay Fluid Images

Fluid images in my posts, with added ![]() accepted syntax for the markdown content! This Hugo community post covers the details.

Amusingly, I’m doing this to make it easier to convert to another system. Other site generators know what to do with standard image markup, as opposed to my custom shortcode. The key for the Big Rewrite is to keep working on what you have now. That way the Big Rewrite isn’t quite so big.

Removing mmark has me grumbly

So the Hugo team is deprecating the mmark Markdown parser. This is an understandable decision. Providing all those options must make Hugo a challenge to maintain and improve.

Well anyways I fixed it — sort of — with some Perl.

I spent my free time wrestling with trivial site details instead of writing posts and having fun. If it was due to my own misguided experimentation, that would be fine. That happens all the time. But no. I had to convert half my site because of someone else’s decisions.

That sort of thing sticks with you.

RSS fix, I hope

Something went wonky in the RSS for this morning’s post. So I rewrote the RSS template. Classic me.
