A few changes and we have the basic site up in a pretty decent shape.

Google Lighthouse happy with Werc based site

Sadly, can’t do anything more for the performance. It is what it is, for a (let’s be generous) “server” running a niche OS on a first generation Raspberry Pi.

To get it this far:

  • create pub and lib directories in _werc directory of the site

  • generate all other possible versions of favicon icons (ios, android, …), add them somewhere unobtrusive (eg. _werc/pub/) and create a file headers.inc in ___werc/lib__ and add the definitions:

      <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/_werc/pub/apple-touch-icon.png">
      <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/_werc/pub/favicon-32x32.png">
      <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/_werc/pub/favicon-16x16.png">
      <link rel="manifest" href="/_werc/pub/site.webmanifest">
  • while editing headers.inc add the definition for device width:

      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

    This will make the best practices score happy.

  • copy over headers.tpl from werc/lib to _werc/lib of the site and change



      <html lang="en">

    This will make the accessibility score happy.

  • edit your _werc/config and add meta description:

      meta_description='A collection of notes on various topics.'

    This will make the SEO score happy.

    All this could be done in headers.tpl, but the system is configurable, so let’s use the options.

  • To make the barf blog plugin for werc work as a subfolder, we need to patch it up to correctly parse the slug when it’s not attached to the domain root: diff

Now, add top_bar.inc and footer.inc to your _werc/lib to add page header and footer content.

And for custom styles, create style.css in your _werc/pub folder.
