Also, the total size of Hakyll code is 500 LOC (without the comments), which supports my guess that Haskell isn't necessarily good for such task.
(And that doesn't take the Hakyll library itself into account!)

TODO [D] arguments against compiling in emacs: it's single threaded? blogexobrainemacs

CREATED: [2020-04-09]

TODO [D] nice thing about using @cache is that I don't have to mess with inotify. there are very few inputs for my blog and I can just check them every second blog

I need poke-symlink which gets around inotify anyway!

[2019-02-18] ok, so in sqlite table, it uses urls… I guess that should make migration easy (if necessary at ll) bloggrasp

[2019-02-19] ok, isso is pretty good. easy to set up, administer, etc bloggrasp

Commento – dunno. also it's in Go blog

if you stick to a few basic tags, going to pure txt should only take a bit of code (and is probably already doable with lynx --dump)

STRT [B] [2020-03-09] (Ángel)μν on Twitter: "1/15) What is the Hamiltonian? And why is it so special? Most importantly, how does it relate to Lagrangian mechanics and give us equations of motion?

CREATED: [2019-12-01]

TODO [C] [2020-02-15] This Page is Designed to Last: A Manifesto for Preserving Content on the Web blog

But why not? Well, you don't save much because your web pages should be gzipped before being sent over the network, so preemptively shrinking your content probably doesn't do much to save bandwidth if anything at all.

[C] [2021-01-29] - IndieWeb blog is an anonymous commenting system for the indieweb.

ok, this seems like the best choice
