I have been planning to rejuvenate my personal website / blog with a new backend
for a long time. I have finally moved to Hugo after messing
with different kind of tech stacks over the time.
I have moved every single feature to Hugo successfully, but There are a few
things that don’t fully work yet, but for the moment, I’m happy with my new site.

You can add git tag to a previous commit using
git tag TAG_NAME COMMIT_HASH,
but it will ammend current date to that tag which can screw your repository by
making out of chronological order. Don’t worry, You may fix this using the code
git tag -l | while read -r tag ; do COMMIT_HASH=$(git rev-list -1 $tag) && GIT_COMMITTER_DATE="$(git show $COMMIT_HASH --format=%aD | head -1)" git tag -a -f $tag -m"$(git show $COMMIT_HASH --format=%s | head -1)" $COMMIT_HASH ; done && git push --tags --force

You may need to change the DateTime of a commit in some situations. For example,

git commit --amend --date "Thu Feb 15 22:37:31 2018 +0300"

Today I have a small disagreement with GIT and git ignore rules. When you add a
file to a GIT repository, it is tracked by GIT. Then adding it to
won’t make GIT forget about that file.
In this post, I will explain how to stop GIT from tracking a file that is
In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create a simple REST API by using Flask framework. I will not bother you with any sort of advanced topic. Probably you won’t use this tutorial for any kind of production level product. I just want to show how easy can be to create a REST API with Flask.
This tutorial aims to build a small and simple app. The entire app fits in a single file.

Imagine that you’re working on a big feature in your app. Then you get a
critical bug ticket that should be resolved immediately. You don’t want to
commit the messy code. You just want to save your dirty working environment, do
urgent things and go back it. For this, you can use
git stash command.

I have experienced a disaster on my web server a few days ago. While trying to
remove one of my dev databases, I have removed the production database
accidentally. I was extremely lucky because I duplicated production database to
the local one to test a python script and I have all my web app’s content in the
