Website on pi

Donate using Liberapay

I spent some time on last night, setting up a mini web server on m Raspberry pi.

So running a http server on a Raspberry Pi.

For this project I am just using the python3-test-server package,

  1. Install python3-test-server
  2. Create a directory to hold some html files
  3. Change to this directory
  4. Create a very basic html file e.g index.html
  5. run python3 -m http.server:7800 where 7800 is the port you want to use

web server on pi

In the browser go to ip:7800

Website on pi

What I have done here, however is

  • Run the server on the pi,
  • Connected via ssh to create the site files and run the server
  • Edited the basic website on the pi via ssh, by running a text editor
  • To copy other files directly from my main PC to the Pi i used

    • scp file.jpg pi@ip:path e.g
      • scp file.jpg pi@ip:/home/pi/html/

I have, gone a little further than this:

In order to share my free software video dvd (and other resources) with people I:-

  • Uploaded files to the server
  • Created a web link to the iso file
  • Edited my router firewall so it would allow a connection to the pi

I then shared the appropriate IP address with a friend via irc so he could download the ISO file, and it worked really well.

The decent(ralized) metaverse

This was posted to Mastodon on 30/12/2020

The metaverse is here: an immersive Web full of social virtual and augmented reality experiences. However, mega-corporations want to lock it down and wall it up to make another addictive, toxic ad-selling platform. We’re taking it in a different direction because we dream of a democratized new era of the Web where creators own their content, users own their data, and no single entity exhibits undue influence on the community as a whole.

We need to build web services free of tracking, free of ads, or other corporate nonsense, and respect user freedom and human right to privacy.

Ghostreply

Ghost Reply

I was recently given a link, again via Mastodon to Ghostreply which allows job agency candidates to send a message to recruiters, who, think it is acceptable to sign people up to their recruitment service, then totally ignore them (Ghosting), this is seen by candidates as very unprofessional. As a victim of this myself, I am very supportive of tools such as this.

It is most annoying when you go to an interview, then go through the usual DBS checks and even under go Child Protection training to then be ignored, only to discover later the person who you thought was your contact has left, she didn't have the professional courtesy to let me know. Even more irritating when the person who was also interviewing does not let people know either.
