Introduction🔗

Before, I had links to many key/identity pages on my website which made things look clunky. I made a site just for that, my keys.

Oh, all the keys I have🔗

At first, my site only had my PGP Key which was fine. Having a dedicated page to the PGP key (or at least a section in a contact page) is not all too uncommon, either. Then, I wanted to cryptographically prove my identities in a way separate than Keybase (partly due to Keybase getting bought by Zoom). Later, I found out about signify/minisign (read a post on why I love it here) so not only did I want to have a page with my Minisign keys, but also wanted to prove my identities with it. Already I had three pages, far too many for simply displaying my different keys on my site. I also realized the pain I would be in if a key (or especially adding/changing an identity) changed.

Git🔗

To easily update keys/identities I use two git repositories. The first holds the key files themselves. The second is the repo for the actual website, which uses the keys repo through a submodule. The website is hosted and deployed through Netlify and built with Zola. The workflow is pretty convenient, just a few git commands and the website is updated in seconds.

The Actual URL🔗
