What is Quake.blog?
Using my alias s3thra, I started this blog at the beginning of 2020. Around that time I had invested a lot of my time into learning TrenchBroom, creating Quake maps, and playing Quake maps packs. I felt like much of what I'd learnt about the Quake community at the time was worth documenting, so this is where that began.
Since then I've created tutorials, told some stories, made some videos, and expanded into blogging about non-Quake things also. Quake.blog is now just my own little personal corner of the web featuring some useful and interesting (IMO!) content for myself and others.
How Quake.blog is made
Ever wondered how to run a dynamic website without having to write code or without having to run and maintain a web server?
Enter Publii. Quake.blog is run fully from an Amazon S3 storage bucket and published using Publii. Publii allows you to edit pages offline and sync to your S3 bucket (or other online storage space) for changes, new articles, and updates. Secure, simple elegant.
