Hugo static blog engine with Mastodon comments: step by step quick howto

Hugo static blog engine with Mastodon comments: step by step quick howto

Saturday, Jan 30, 2021

In this short blog entry, I’ll explain how to add a comment system to Hugo’s static blog engine. I’ll expand on Carl Schwan’s excellent blog article and attempt to make it more accessible to Hugo’s newcomers. For the sake of example, I expand from the Dream theme (kudos to g1eny0ung for his great theme!). Foreword All the hard work has been pulled of by Carl. This is merely the steps I had to reproduce to integrate Carl’s suggestion.

Boost your Vim autocompletion with YouCompleteMe and Jedi (on a CentOS system)

Boost your Vim autocompletion with YouCompleteMe and Jedi (on a CentOS system)

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Recently, Steve Francia’s Vim Distribution (aka vim-spf13) brought a new life to my aging vimrc dotfile. It bundles most of the popular plugins that makes you life as a programmer easier (Syntastics, ctrlp, …). The only thing missing to make it into a good IDE is a completion plugin for C and C++. In this brief blog entry, I’ll show you how to install YouCompleteMe on CentOS and improve your Vim experience.

Poor man's NAS, the Pogoplug

Poor man's NAS, the Pogoplug

Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012

If are looking for a cheap, customizable RAID 1 capable, multiple terabytes NAS. Look no more, because the Pogoplug seals the deal. For the price, you will not have bleeding edge performance, but you gain the level of customization of a fully featured GNU/Linux system. Earlier this year, I set out to build my very own Linux-enabled, Do It Yourself, NAS in order to store my RAW pictures and videos. At that time, the very famous Raspberry Pi was not available and I turned to an equally good product named Pogoplug.

Using Firefox Sync Server with Nginx

Using Firefox Sync Server with Nginx

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Recently, I tried to install the Sync Server on a NgInx server but the big Internet could not help me much, so I decided to write this blog entry in an attempt to complete the official documentation. For those who don’t know, the Sync Server provides passwords, bookmarks and sessions synchronisation features between multiple running Firefox’s instances. In the past, I used other alternatives, such as SyncPlaces, but the lack of integration within Firefox finally pushed me away from this solution.

Upgrading a Samsung Q35 laptop to 2.5GB RAM

Upgrading a Samsung Q35 laptop to 2.5GB RAM

Friday, May 20, 2011

Hi readers, Since 4 years already, I am the happy owner of a Samsung Q35 laptop. This is a neat laptop. Among its strong points, I can point its weight (~1.5kg I would say) and its excellent compatibility with GNU/Linux (everything works out of the box!). However, there is a huge drawback: the RAM. By default, there is only 512MB installed. Additionally, this memory module is soldered to the motherboard and thus can not be upgraded.

2010 has been quite a busy year! 2011 does not seems bad either.

2010 has been quite a busy year! 2011 does not seems bad either.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

It has almost been one year since I last published any news on this blog. However, I was to busy/lazy to write more posts. As you can see, a lot happened within only one year: I obtained my PhD (told you I was busy) I moved to the US… …because I started a postdoc at the prestigious National Institute of Standards and Technologies (in the Advanced Network Technology Division) And more importantly, I got married with Julie (probably the best thing I did so far) A load of things changed for me.

Review of the Cowon iAudio i9

Review of the Cowon iAudio i9

Tuesday, Jul 20, 2010

Two months ago, I bought a Cowon iAudio i9 player. I waited a bit before publishing my review because I wanted to be sure that I would have some real life experience with the product. If you do not want to read through the whole review, my opinion is that, while the product deserves its good reputation, I would not consider it perfect and would not advise you to buy one (at least, not before you actually read my review and understand why I can not do so).

Build a customized bootable image of Debian GNU/Linux

Build a customized bootable image of Debian GNU/Linux

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Recently, I was given a laptop on which I couldn’t install any software on the hard drive. Fortunately, this laptop has the ability to boot on USB devices and I happened to have a 8GB USB flash drive (which is, for the records, largely enough to install a Linux Live system on). To add extra complexity, I was required to use a tool (namely a patched version of NTT Docomo’s SEND implementation (that you can find here)) that is provided by Debian packages (.

Using inotify and latexmk to build your latex documents (automatically) while you write them

Using inotify and latexmk to build your latex documents (automatically) while you write them

Friday, Apr 9, 2010

Every now and then, I write an article/report/whatever in LaTeX. Last time I had to do it, I was in a rush. So, I recalled a really nice trick I found out a while ago. This trick allows me to have a .pdf file that is updated each time I save the corresponding .tex file(s). The main idea is to combine two very interesting tools: All of this was true until latexmk was born.

Presenting VIM plugins

Presenting VIM plugins

Sunday, Mar 7, 2010

Instead of the usual self presentationfor a first post, I’ll present you my favorite text editor. I use VIM. Mainly because it meets my needs. However, I understand other people may like different editors (if you happen to have twelve fingers and prefer Emacs). A text editor is a tool that we use a lot of time in your day (at least, in mine). Think about a normal text editing activities, when you need to:

Everything about $me

My name is Tony Cheneau and I’m currently a devops (catchy title) at ANSSI.

I was previously occupying a postdoc position at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (also known as NIST), in the Advanced Network Technologies Division. This was a really entertaining job where my main research interests are focused on wireless applications over the Smart Grid and defining new security solution for these applications.

If you are interested in my education (or in hiring me), you can check out my very formal (and not so up to date) resume.pdf.

How you can contact me

My previous projects

  • SimpleRPL: an implementation of the Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RFC 6550)
  • NDprotector: an implementation of the Cryptographically Generated Addresses (RFC 3972) and the Secure Neighbor Discovery Protocol (RFC 3971)
  • and more on my GitHub page

Former research interest

During my PhD, I studied several aspects of the Link-Layer security. through the extended use of the Secure Neighbor Discovery protocol (RFC 3971 and RFC 3972).

Other of my previous research interests included MANEMO. MANEMO is the combination of multiple research areas:

  • MANET (Mobile Ad-Hoc Network) specifies how new dynamic routing protocols enable mobile node to route packets over Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks.
  • NEMO (Network Mobility or Network that Moves) defines a protocol similar to Mobile IP where a whole network is moving.
  • AUTOCONF defines an addressing scheme and corresponding solutions to allocate addresses inside a MANET.
