Textfiles Mirror

:: Hugo / After Dark / Shell / HTML / CSS / ES6

The textfiles-mirror website is an ambitious port of Jason Scott’s textfiles.com website to After Dark. This “dot-bit”-ready site includes a number of unique features not available on any existing mirror including 57,000 preview pages with both light/dark themes.

This site was built to stress-test Hugo to determine the limits of scale for the static site generator which claims to be one of the fastest. At this scale, Hugo chews up about 14GB memory to build the site and requires approx. 1-2 minutes to build on an 8-core i7.
