Adding Detailed Zoom Images

2020-07-14 2 min read Behind the scenes Blog improvements Teknikal_Domain Unable to load comment count

Remember the time I Added Medium Zoom ? Well as it turns out, as I was reading through Zoom’s documentation, that you can specify a separate URL to load when the image zooms in. I like this, because I crop all my images to be (for landscape oriented) 1000 pixels wide, just slightly over the size of the content area that they go into. This is a serious reduction in size from the resolution they’re taken at. I do this just to improve load times, even with WebP and compression, extra pixels (that get resized to nothingness) are extra data that needs to be sent. And since it’s literally too big to be shown like that, I crop them so that pages load nearly instantly. The problem is that when you click on an image to see it, you get… basically nothing. I (because reasons) don’t have any old images so they’ll stay the same. But from now on, any images that are added in will have a detailed version that loads when you click to zoom.

Regaining Hugo Image Processing

So as of now, there’s about half as many LFS objects in this blog’s repository, the close size has fallen by, well, not exactly a rock, but by a noticeable amount, and as of now, all my images are around the same size again. So what gives?

Well like the trend is on this site, I offloaded some responsibility to something else. And by something, I once again mean Cloudflare. This time, not workers, but a feature standard with the Pro plan that I switched to a bit ago .

Adding Google Charts Integration

Yesterday I posted about Cloudflare’s cache , and if you didn’t notice (or read far enough down), there’s actual pie charts with data in them for visualization.

Yeah, so now I can add the Google Charts API and draw charts on any page that I like, and the best part is that it was surprisingly simple to do that.

Complying With the Latest Security Policies

Modern websites and modern browsers support a wide range of security features to communicate specifically what is and is not allowed to be loaded, executed, or sent over the network. Being the person that I am, I’m going to comply with the latest guidelines and best practices as much as I can.. and it’s a headache.

Improving My Site With Cloudflare Workers and Amazon S3

So as of now, anything much more over 1 MB I’m not going to take up space on all my devices hosting - I’ll just offload it to someone else. And how do I get it back? JavaScript.

No wait, I’m actually serious. As of now, I essentially have Cloudflare as a CDN that’s backed by the Amazon S3 storage service. Posts such as The one about light balance have everything but the featured image… not here anymore.
