Today I held an updated version of my Cypress on Rails talk at the Hamburg Ruby UserGroup.

A simple script approach to import posts from an external feed into a Jekyll blog using HEY World’s atom feed as an example. Contains some special workarounds to fix the feed’s contents, but should work with every well-formed RSS feed out there with a little customisation.

Test Post for writing short posts in HEY World and importing them into Jekyll (with syntax highlighting and tags). Works fine (up to a certain extend) without cluttering the output in case someone would really subscribe to this via email.

A talk about how to replace Capybara with for E2E tests while maintaining all the nice features like using FactoryBot to generate test data on-the-fly. Held on the December meeting of the Hamburg Ruby UserGroup.

I’m pretty happy with Jekyll and the static HTML pages it creates, but one thing every Wordpress blog features is clearly missing: a comment section. Yes, it mostly collects either dust or bitcoin scams these days, but there’s still the chance someone actually has a question or remark about the thing I wrote.
