Clews.pro is this web site. A place to document my various projects. I do this mostly just for fun and education.
I started with the knowledge of installing apache, exposing port 80 and some very basic HTML skills.
Now I have a modular set of web apps served at different subdomains and all encrypted with SSL.
To further develop said HTML skills and additionally learn CSS, I made my way through HTML & CSS by Jon Duckett.
Containerisation of this site and various subdomains has been implemented with docker and docker-compose. I wish I discovered Docker sooner! It makes backing-up very straightforward. It also allows me to tear it all down then pull it all back up on a different machine in a flash. This part is made even easier thanks to ansible automation and the playbooks/roles I made for deployment, configuration and maintenance of these containers (see project clewsy_ansible).
The docker-compose.yml file pulls the following container images:
|nginx-proxy||nginxproxy/nginx-proxy||Used to reverse-proxy multiple domains and subdomains.|
|acme-companion||nginxproxy/acme-companion||Used to implement certificates and encryption for sites served by nginx-proxy.|
|Nextcloud||nextcloud||Web app for file storage and a bunch of other features. My method of replacing google drive.|
|MariaDB||linuxserver/mariadb||Database linked to the Nextcloud container.|
|Nextcloud-Cronjob||rcdailey/nextcloud-cronjob||Used for scheduled execution of Nextcloud's cron.php script. As an aside, I contributed to this project with a minor pull request that reduced the container image size by about 75%.|
|ncbu||clewsy/ncbu||I created this container image to simplify automated backups of my nextcloud data and database.|
|Collabora||collabora/code||Implemented to enable web-based editing of documents/spreadsheets within the Nextcloud instance.|
|Navidrome||deluan/navidrome||Music library and streaming app. Stream via web interface or android app (such as UltraSonic).|
|Calibre-Web||linuxserver/calibre-web||Web-based ebook library.|
|Vaultwarden||vaultwarden/server||Password management system (formerly bitwardenrs/server).|
|NGINX||nginx||For serving up the html/css/php that forms this (and other) sites.|
|PHP||php||Configured for access by NGINX containers to enable serving php scripts.|
|Watchtower||containrrr/watchtower||Periodically checks for updates to all container images. Downloads and runs when new images are discovered.|
The logo for clews.pro also intended to be a learning exercise - this time in vector graphics editing - specifically Inkscape.
I've been doodling the Penrose triangle since I discovered it in primary school, so it served as a geometric starting point. I exploded it into the three identical but rotated parts and rearranged them to differ from the original. I felt the result was a bit too angular/aggressive, so I put the whole thing into a circle. I clearly lack the designer gene but it serves the purpose.
