hmm, I'd like to get off of GitHub because it's owned by Microsoft.
but GitLab is hosted on the Google Cloud, which is hardly an improvement...
SDF does git hosting and offers web pages but I lost my password for my shell account and I dunno if I want to bug them about it since I'm not a paying member.
Also a good option. I name-dropped SDF earlier because they offer a public access UNIX system with a ton of available services, including a Mastodon instance.
I'd say use Codeberg ideally, but personally I also use GitLab (I'm still on the fence). As for your site, why not just rent a cheap Linode VPS and self host? I think one of the best things I ever did was learn to develop my own static site and host it myself. Not only is it a great feeling / useful skill - it also means you can host it wherever you want.
Yeah, learning how to work with a basic static site generator is probably one of the better skills I've started exercising this year. Now all I need to do is learn how to not suck at web design :-p
The beauty of doing your own site is it will evolve. You'll keep making improvements, learning new tricks and coming up with new ideas. It's amazing what you can do with some simple HTML and CSS! If you value organisation, tidiness and economy of code, I'd recommend looking into preprocessors like Less and Sass.
I have to agree as well, there's something really magical about being able to say "I made this myself," which is why I'm making the effort to do it by hand. The prebuilt options just didn't feel right.
I'm looking at Linode now and some of the prices I'm seeing are definitely tempting, so I'll keep that in mind. Thanks very much.
@swashberry I use Codeberg primarily and prefer the UI to GitHub or GitLab (matter of personal preference)
@swashberry There's nothing wrong with GitHub. Just because they're owned by Microsoft doesn't instantly resign them to being evil. They don't profit from users, use only necessary cookies, take up for the rights of users (as shown in the case of youtube-dl), the list goes on.
