Project Notes

The Catalog

This is a simple Javascript catalog for building the LittleCodingKata GitHub Pages site.

It is a simple bootstrap/datatables page with the main entry point in index.html. Catalog data is loaded from catalog.json, which is consolidated from .catalog_metadata I’ve added to each project.

The utility script is used to maintain the catalog:

catalog/ rebuild  # builds the catalog from catalog metadata

Atom Feed

The script also generates the atom.xml feed file. This is a best-effort conversion to an atom feed. Currently includes all projects in the feed.


I’m using Netlify to run the catalog site directly from the GitHub repository.

Note: I previously used GitHub Pages, but switched to Netlify as that allows me to use free SSL certificates from LetsEncrypt.

Running Locally

The site is generated with Jekyll. To run locally:

bundle exec jekyll serve

The generated site will be in the _site folder. This can be trashed after testing (it is not checked into the repo).

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LittleCodingKata GitHub repository.

LittleCodingKata is my collection of programming exercises, research and code toys broadly spanning things that relate to programming and software development (languages, frameworks and tools).

These range from the trivial to the complex and serious. Many are inspired by existing work and I'll note credits and references where applicable. The focus is quite scattered, as I variously work on things new and important in the moment, or go back to revisit things from the past.

This is primarily a personal collection for my own edification and learning, but anyone who stumbles by is welcome to borrow, steal or reference the work here. And if you spot errors or issues I'd really appreciate some feedback - create an issue, send me an email or even send a pull-request.
