New blog software

I have written a new blog software again! The previous one was named
r5, as in Rasmus (5 letters omitted).
The new one is written in Rust (
.rs source files), so it was natural
to call it r4s, also as in Rasmus (but
with only 4 letters omitted 😎).
Now let’s see if having a new shiny project for my blog engine makes me write more posts.
The style is inspired by Hamonshu by Eric Meyer and his technique for Pseudo-Randomly Adding Illustrations with CSS, but with art and type that feels more “me”.
In essense, r4s is almost a static site generator, but using a database for some extra flexibility where I want it. As the server code is written in rust and does as little as possible at runtime, it should be fast enough even though it’s still served from my home computer.
