GitHub has a "template repository" feature

This allows users to create fresh repositories based on the template repository, without creating forks, or keeping the git history. Handy for boilerplates or starter projects.

It's located right under the project name in settings, and once on, a new green button "Use this template" appears on repository home page. You can see it in action on my Jekyll+Tailwind boilerplate:

Netlify serves Jekyll 404 pages out of box

I have built many Jekyll websites, but I kind of always forgot to add a 404 page. I knew it works out of box on local server (Webrick) and GH Pages.

Well, today I learned that Netlify respects our time as well and placing a `404.html` page in the root will also work magically over there, with 0 config.

SimpleHTTPServer has become even simpler in Python 3

One of the simplest ways to serve a static website on locally has forever been opening up a terminal window, "cd"-ing to the website folder and running Python's SimpleHTTPServer in it:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 

Today I learned that the command has become a bit more memorable in Python 3:

python3 -m http.server

Regarding privacy concerns, it's simple - we don't sell your data. In fact, we try to use privacy-focused software/services like Fathom Analytics whenever we use any third-party services.
