Concept

njoqi is the place you’re currently visiting. It was inspired by personal wikis and digital gardens like Neauoire’s XXIIVV, and aims to be:

  • a projects portfolio
  • a place to aggregate personal logs
  • a productivity and inspirational tool
  • a compendium of knowledge and useful resources
  • a fun little bit of Internet I can play with

Technology

It is generated through custom Typescript using Markdown files for content and HTML with whiskers for templating. The script uses markdown-it with plugins, and sass.

I aim to keep it accessible, have a small footprint, and a simple and user-friendly development stack. It is currently hosted on Codeberg Pages, with the code available on its own Codeberg git repo. I switched to Codeberg as an open-source, non-profit, Europe-based alternative to Github.

Ultimately, I want to try self-hosting it on a used Raspberry Pi (or similar) for several reasons:

  • full control and ownership
  • low power consumption
  • possibly use renewable energy
  • learning about server configuration
  • in the future, turning the Pi into a local community hosting station

“Digital gardens explore a wide variety of topics and are frequently adjusted and changed to show growth and learning, particularly among people with niche interests.”
