The Nerdy Page is extending its already impressive reach and now has a home (capsule) in Geminispace. The new Nerdy Page capsule went live last night (10/17/23) at approximately 2300 MST. It can be accessed at gemini:// from a Gemini Protocol browser.

My new capsule is currently powered by a Gemini server written is Rust named Agate. Installation on Ubuntu was a breeze using Cargo, but after some quick testing I decided to run the server as a Docker Compose service instead of managing it as a a Systemd service. I’ve pushed a very basic example to GitHub with my docker-compose.yml and Dockerfile. It turns out that while I didn’t initially see a Docker file in the Agate repo on GitHub, it was actually there all along under tools/docker, so that would be worth checking out as well.
