Part of my shift to separating certain types of information out so that it can be located more readily.
The site is generated using my CLI based content-management-system - essentially a Static Site Generator (SSG). This route was chosen for security (no dynamic code exposed to the world), but also for performance reasons - the resulting pages are static HTML and so are very cacheable, so can be loaded incredibly quickly.
The site exists so that I have somewhere to share small code snippets (i.e. not unlike a Github Gist), and is accompanied by a small Python client which allows snippets to quickly be searched and viewed from a shell on my systems at home.
