Using Github for My Digital Garden
It’s been about a year I’m curios on Git use and really want to have a digital garden. I know basically I can use anything for digital garden, but I want a more simple look though it’d require a bit more complex steps compared to ready-to-post blog platform. So, both Git and digital garden seems like a match-made from heaven for people who cannot do a lot of front end language like me.
I’ve created two kind of repositories on my new Github profile. First, a repository on digital security stuffs like how-to, tools, and other guides. This repo I turned to a page using a readme file. Second, the secure online gaming repo. Both are the repositories I moved from etherpad I used on Disroot. I’m planning to keep them both just to add more, especially the secure online gaming one as it is also shared to other people within my work. The difference between the first and second repositories is the language I used. While on the first one I used Markdown, on the second one I used HTML in a cheaty way. Because I cannot write on HTML, so I used a Wordpress backend and firstly I wrote on a virtual mode (which is basically like a word processor) and when I was done, I turned it into HTML view and I copied them all to be pasted on my Github HTML file on the repository.
So far I’m quite happy with my learning step. At least I can see my links and things I’ve been learning and have compiled since last year on a clean page. I’m committed to cultivate them as my learning goes. Next thing I need to explore is using HTML (or maybe MD?) to change the color and layout so I can do some tweaking.
Clearly I’m still mostly clueless on git, like I still failed to use SSH on it, but let see.
