This is a personal branding website homepage. It's aim is too keep it simple.

I use it as a convenient way to give informations about different projects. It use a minimal dependencies stack, especially on the frontend with mostly jQuery and KNACSS: I choosed to limit myself to those since this project is so simple, I didn't want to download 30 000 dependencies by installing React and have to deal with dependency hell when upgrading my CV every year.

The backend is made with Mojolicious. Simple to install and deploy, full toolkit including a powerful template engine. I extended it with an I18N plugin that makes very easy to deal with the different languages.

Historically I used this projet to experiment and train myself on the MEAN JavaScript ecosytem but this project don''t reflect this anymore. If you look at the pre-2019 git history, you can see how it was before (Node.js, Express, Bootstrap, etc.)


You can fork it on Gitlab.

A minimum installation on Some Linux would require:

$ cd hi.balik.network
$ apt install libmojolicious-perl carton
$ carton install

All CSS and JavaScript dependencies are pre-packaged, no need to fetch them from NPM. Will maybe change in the future.

Deployment strategy with SystemD:

$ git checkout master && git pull origin master
// Set $balik_home in makefile before
$ cd ${balik_home}
$ make dependencies-install
$ systemctl start express

For more information on how to set up a process manager and SystemD, see Express documentation and this Axllent blog post.
