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, thanks to some very powerful tools. With mostly Mojolicious, jQuery and KNACSS, upgrading a couple of informations on a website remains a pleasure and not a dependencies hell.

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

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 (use of Node.js, Express, Bootstrap, etc.). I consider this stack being too bloated for such a simple website and Perl seems to be much more reliable on the long term.


You can fork it on Codeberg.

A minimum installation on some Linux box would require:

$ cd hi.balik.network
$ apt install carton
$ carton install

All CSS and JavaScript dependencies are pre-packaged, no need to fetch them from NPM.

Super-sophisticated deployment strategy on the server:

$ git checkout master && git pull origin master
$ make prod-run

The server should start localy thanks to hypnotoad. Please use a reverse proxy on your favorite server frontend (I use Apache, but feel free to use whatever you want).


Seriously, I would like to thank:

  • Ezgi, who allowed me to really achieve an extreme self-marketing
  • Mathilde who reported an awful bug that turned out to be a missing comma ;D
  • « Somebody » reported an issue with i18n, can't remember who, but I think of you <3!

Thank you!
