HTTPS Support

less than 1 minute read

I just added HTTPS support to this site ๐Ÿ˜„

I was reading a blog post by Jesse Squires where he describes doing this for his own personal site in detail by migrating over to, and how itโ€™s been very successful for him. Since HTTPS support was something Iโ€™ve been very eager to do, this post gave me the push to actually get it done. I followed all the steps he laid out almost exactly except for the bash-specific parts. Since I like the fish shell a lot, I tweaked the git hook script a bit to work with that, and used the fish way to set persistent universal environment variables instead of editing some .bash-profile file.

After a couple small technical hiccups, is being served from nearly free speechโ€™s servers without issue, and you are auto-directed to the https version if you try to visit the normal http url, which should ensure youโ€™re more secure as you read this site. Enjoy!
