I live by myself far away from my relatives, which can can make them worried if they don't hear about me for too long. To reassure them, I made a simple web application which displays my recent activity alongside a list of emergency contacts.
Maintaining good habits can sometimes be hard. Recently, I've been looking at the way contributions are displayed on GitHub: a grid with a cell for each day, turning green if contributions have been made on that date.

Rebuilding the GUI of this CMS with Nuxt.js
I have been using this CMS for several years now and overall, it has served me well. However, as the GUI of the CMS was built as an single page application (SPA), meta tags and other SEO options could not easily be generated for each article.</p><p>To solve this problem, I rebuilt this GUI using Nuxt.js as as to leverage server-side rendering (SSR). Articles are now fetched from the CMS API server-side, which allows meta tags to be set before sending content to clients.
Managing one's body weight can be quite a challenge. And as the quote from Peter Drucker goes, "You can't manage what you can't measure". So, I built a body weight scale that can upload data to an API of my choice, which was the object of this article.
