Speed up your Jekyll workflow

Lately I build:


vhost is a command line utillity to create new Apache Virtual Hosts, add them to the /etc/hosts/ file and create a dummy Document Root under /var/www/html/. It's written in bash and comes with a template.

See vhost on GitHub


viewSwitcher is a dependency free, isolated module to handle different "views" and very basic "routing" through URL hashes.

See viewSwitcher.js on GitHub

I used to take photos.


When I was 15 or so I started getting interested in Photography and shortly even worked as one for smaller events and concerts/bands. These days I am mostly sharing photos on EyeEm or Instagram. Some of my EyeEm photographs are for sale on Getty Images.

Older photos as well as a few newer can be found on my Flickr page.
