My all new Blog
I recently switched my hosting provider and I upgraded to an cheap dedicated server by ovh So I started migrating all my data and I decided to speed up my software stack a little bit by replacing apache with nginx. I was never quite satisfied with the speed of my old website, but - so I thought - with this new dedicated server everything should be faster.
When I finally had everything ready I notice that the loading time for the webpage is over 500ms just to load the HTML.
I decided this can’t be and since I always wanted to get started with Go I decided to use a nice webframework named revel and build my own blogging software.
This is the result
I also optimized it a little bit more for mobile devices, the resulting website scores much better on Google’s PageSpeed Insights The blog code is just a few hundred lines of go code + lots of template code.
If you’re interested you can have a look at the code on github
Thanks to alle the people who wrote the components this software builds on:
And of course https://github.com/hermanschaaf/ironzebra for inspiration
