I recently moved the fast.ai blog from jekyll to quarto, including hundreds of posts
I migrated my work blog from fastpages to quarto with minimal hurdles, thanks to Hamel Husain’s guidelines. I played with a few settings gleaned from the Gallery and elsewhere. Light/dark mode (Oooh!, Aaah!).
Aside from resources listed above, I’d recommend looking at the following from RStudio folks:
Currently am remaking my blog in Quarto! Will share it here once complete.
It’s got a fancy-schmancy dynamic side-by-side listing.
Have to say though, am liking Quarto a lot so far. It abstracts lots of the nitty gritty, so I don’t need to learn HTML/CSS, except for one-off snippets here and there.
Here is my quarto blog: dhblog .
Currently, it has the following:
- Object Detection from Scratch
- Captcha Prediction
I’d love to see the side-by-side listing!
I think this belongs in the corresponding nbdev topic
What is a better way to include code in a Quarto blog? Using a
.ipynb file directly or adding code blocks in the blog.
I am wondering whether or not the fast.ai lesson codes would work if I include blocks of code.
I have seen learners including the NB file directly instead of adding code blocks in a blog.
I tend to use markdown for posts with very little code and ipynb for lots of code, since I really like using Jupyter Notebook to write those sorts of posts to begin with.
I migrated mine and wrote a quick post about it! It is seriously, seriously cool being able to natively combine RMarkdown and Jupyter. I want to try and publish some of my more complicated Obsidian notes to it next…
Quarto really is fun. I’m staying up way to long . I enjoyed fastpages very much before. Yet, quarto is an improvement. Thanks for providing this!
Here is my site: jo@tom - Posts
Trying a few things with quarto. Even though there are no major posts yet. Quarto does allow possibilities of a nice portfolio site.
I have added a few simple experiments with webapps and other static site generator output integrated with quarto
I recently moved and consolidated my blog to quarto myblog - Isaac’s Tech Blog
Hi folks. Still very much a work in progress, but here is my first draft blog page, which I’m using to showcase my work as I progress through the course. In the longer term, I would hope to engage more and more with the community, and when I get a quiet moment, I plan to document the obstacles I have battled with so far (some wins, many losses!) which will hopefully help others who end up treading the same ground.
Here is mine - http://aayushmnit.com/
I am writing more blogs since I have moved to Quarto as ability to write blogs through Jupyter notebook is magical. I have also attached a custom domain which I bought from Godaddy and have activity tracking enabled using Google analytics. Here are some recently written ML blogs -
- Aayush Agrawal - Model calibration for classification task using Python (aayushmnit.com)
- Aayush Agrawal - Mixing art into the science of model explainability (aayushmnit.com)
- Aayush Agrawal - Causal inference with Synthetic Control using Python and SparseSC (aayushmnit.com)
I am also doing a Stable diffusion series (which is almost unrelated with anything I do at work) -
- Part 1 - Aayush Agrawal - Stable diffusion using Hugging Face - Introduction (aayushmnit.com)
- Part 2 - Aayush Agrawal - Stable diffusion using Hugging Face - Looking under the hood (aayushmnit.com)
- Part 3 - Aayush Agrawal - Stable diffusion using Hugging Face - Putting everything together. (aayushmnit.com)
TODO for my site:
- customise the design a bit
- (perhaps) add an email subscription option, though everything seems very expensive.
figure out how to post a notebook as a blog(useful blogpost earlier in the threat which explains this)
figure out how to get utterances comments added back into the blog.(comments are explained here)
I just made a big upgrade to my blog and moved it, still in Quarto!
I’m using MailerLite for my subscription option. The free plan gets 1,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month I believe.
I believe beehive has a free plan too, though have not tried them.
Here is mine! I recently migrated it from an older version of nbdev.
There are a few posts I’m still working on migrating. Hoping to have a fresh post up tomorrow as well.
And I’ve completed my new website! Uses quite a few Quarto features too, from tab sets to CSS grids to margin headers and much more!
I plan to add more features in the future, mainly through Quarto extensions, such as a scroll-to-the-top button, text animations, and image lightboxes — the latter which I plan to use when I shift my 3D CG works to my website.
Quarto is cool!
A quick backstory:
- I was inspired by this post which encouraged me to create a blog!
- I had this strange unpleasant mindsets around “personal branding”, and yet again came this post that changed my perceptions around it!
- I had heard about fastpages and was ready to set up my blog on it!
- I then discovered this thread on the forums and got to know about Quarto.
- Finally, I went on and built it. It was an amazing experience.
Here it is.
I kept it simple sort of inspired by the fast.ai website.
I am experimenting with colours and stuff. I read somewhere that it is a forbidden to have a non-white background ! Is it ?! If I change it, I will definitely keep a dark theme background. Any tips/advice is appreciated.
Turns out we can build whatever we want in it- presentations, books, and what not! Quarto is very dynamic and gives a lot of flexibility and power. I really love the feature of converting NBs directly into a blog.
Finally, I am trying to adopt practices mentioned in this post to write better blog posts.
