A full size mirror

Posted on Sun, 20 Sep 2015 at 05:28 PM

Well it is done. A fully functioning mirror of this site is available over at mirror.brianschrader.com, and it's hosted by GitHub Pages, so it's really fast.

Getting the mirror going was simple, because as I mentioned I alredy use Git for managing this site. Simply adding a new destination to publish to:

git add remote mirror <url>

and adding that destination to my deployment script was all I needed to do. Yay Git!

Thanks Manton for the awesome suggestion. It's important that we, as a community, try to persist our work. The web right now is ephemeral, so individuals need to take the steps make sure their work is preserved.
