Google introduced Project Mainline starting from Android 10. Google claims that project mainline benefits users on 3 components.

  1. Security

I’m completing 8+ years of journey with Sutherland today, which is the longest stint of my career in any organization that I worked. It looks like I have spent a long period here, but feels like short. I would say that,

Why Content Management System is needed for writing blogs?

People create blogs and start writing posts frequently in the beginning and stops it gradually to zero. I would say there are 3 types of people who write blogs.

  1. Who sees the platform as fresh, creates a blog starts writing a post or two then forget
  2. Who setup a blog, spending more time on tweaking the layout of the site than actually writing
  3. Who doesn’t create a blog, opt the ready-made one available in the market such as Medium

The people who setup static websites falls in the first two categories.

I feel there should be a medium to write something like a paper, notebook, diary to convert a thought that flash in our mind to a blog post. When the gap increases in converting a thought into writing, probably it will never be written. The medium is the main obstacle that reduces the frequency of blog posts and makes to zero at the end.

I started writing in this blog in a text editor, push it to git. The main obstacle is that, I have to write it only on my personal computer, where git installed. When I don’t have a computer with git installed, the gap increases. I want to get rid of this.

Found Netlify-CMS as the better alternate to write blog posts, preview then publish.
