How I publish my blog: Using Continuous Integration with Jekyll

9 minute read

As I’ve mentioned before, this blog is build as a static website with Jekyll, which allow me not to worry about data bases, logins or anything of the sorts when I’m publishing and managing the web. I use the free tier of GitHub Pages as hosting, which has its downsides and upsides. The main upside is, it’s really convenient and free. On the othe...

Cleaning a GeoPackage after merging

The other day I was talking about how you can merge several GeoPackages files in a single GeoPackage —just because you wanted or needed that way. Problem is, sometimes some of the data or information that those GeoPackages contain could be redundan.

Git, is a wonderful tool to track and follow changes in almost any kind of document/s or project, specially is they are plain text documents —or sort of— like any kind of source code is. Problem is, code isn’t always alone and oftentimes it goes...

As you know, I have a problem on my vintage MacBook Pro late 2011 related to my dGPU. Basically it died :skull: at the end of 2017. So I have to find a patch to be able to continue use it, and I finally did in this way.
