The multi-tenant web is the Big Tech web is the surveillance capitalism web. You’re not going to win at their game.

The single tenant web is the Small Web. Want to help reshape the topology of communication (and thus politics) in the 21st century? Look there.

Site.js is a tool for developers to build the small web.

Here’s a sneak peek at the next version of the Site.js web site. It’s running with Site.js on my laptop and exposed via ngrok so might not be up for long:


@aral You redesigned the website ?

Is there a doc showing pros/cons to use it compared to hugo or any other tools ?

· · Web · 2 · 0 · 0

@hyde @aral I guess, I don't really understand what this is. A webserver?

@basil @hyde Yep. But for a web where each server/site/app is owned by one person. No concept of multiple users.

@hyde Re: Hugo, next version actually has it bundled.

Re: other tools, main advantage: ease of use.

@aral @hyde What is the benefit to switching to Site.js if I'm already using Hugo? Is it mostly to be able to host a Hugo site and a Site.js site side-by-side without fiddling with Nginx configs?

@jamesgecko @hyde Nope: it’s so you can host your Hugo site without fiddling with Nginx configs and Let’s Encrypt, etc. (And you can also extend your Hugo site with dynamic functionality if you so wish. e.g., like adding comments to it by implementing the feature using DotJS/Node.js .)
