A few months ago, hut was failing every single time and the author said
it was become of the number of small files. I don’t know if the issue
with hut as been solved.

A fellow sourcehuter told me to use acurl instead which worked.

I’m willing to help debug the issue as I may be one of the first with
lot of small files but probably not the last.

Uploading a website in several steps a day ago

I’m still investigating how to workaround frequent build failures of my
website and had the idea of doing several tar.gz insteal of one?

If my website is:

- index.html
- folderA/somefiles
- folderB/somefiles

Can I build two tar.gz?

That’s how I understand it. That’s why I’m suggesting it as a new
potential feature.

I think that "htaccess-kind redirections" are a mess but maybe simply

If someone access ploum.be/blalbla.html, is will it be redirected to
ploum.net/blabla.html if the meta is only in index.html?

With Apache, I will play with an .htaccess but I don’t know if something
similar is available on sourcehut.  (that would be very helpful so I can
reduce the amount of duplicated content)

Do you mean doing a custom index.html with redirect meta and uploading
only that file to each domain?

(sorry, if it is obvious for everyone but me, never thought of that so I
need to clarify)

Drowning in AI Generated Garbage : the silent war we are fighting a day ago

From to ~lioploum/en

by Ploum on 2022-12-05


All over the web, we are witnessing very spectacular results from
statistic algorithms that have been in the work for the last forty
years. We gave those algorithms an incredibly catchy name: "Artificial
Intelligence". We now have very popular and direct applications for
them: give the algorithm a simple text prompt (don’t get me started on
the importance of text) and it generates a beautiful original picture or
a very serious-sounding text. It could also generate sounds or videos
(we call them "deep fakes"). After all, it generates only a stream of
bits, a bunch of 1 and 0 open to interpretation.

I currently have my blog on https://ploum.net

But I also want it on several other domains: www.ploum.net, ploum.be,
www.ploum.be and, soon, ploum.eu, www.ploum.eu

Currently, my .build.yml has to do 4 deployments which takes a lot of
time and ressource (and increase probability of failure, see the other

I was wondering if there could be an option in .build.yml to tell
sourcehut that a domain should point to an existing deployed website. It
could either be transparent (the user see it as a different website) or
