Encode with base64 in Jekyll

Encode with base64 in Jekyll

a tiny but working plugin

In Jekyll’s folder, create a new file that could named as base64_filter.rb and put this file in the _plugins folder.

Then, define a Liquid filter with base64 encoding in base64_filter.rb:

require "base64"

module Base64Filter
  def base64_encode (input)
    Base64.encode64(input)
  end
end

Liquid::Template.register_filter(Base64Filter) # register filter globally

Now you can use this filter with e.g.:

{{ page.email | base64_encode }}

{{ page.content | base64_encode }}

Idea came from How to do base64 encoding in Jekyll.

Self-host comments in Jekyll, powered by Firebase real-time database

It's convenient to set up a comment system in Jekyll site with external social comment systems like Disqus or Duoshuo (多说). However, as you all know, Disqus was blocked in China and Duoshuo is going to shutdown. It's the time to rethink about the comment system (although I didn't get too many comments →_→), simple and controllable. And it becomes true with Firebase database.
