Lately I was helping a friend of mine prepare for a trip to India. While doing so one of the things she wanted to get done was to type up a table that included US dollar amounts on one column, and the rupee equivalent in the other. The fixer api is one way to go about getting up to date exchange rates.
This is my first post for my github pages site blog. Now that I got that out of the way I thought I would start out by writing about hexo.io. Hexo is a node.js powered static site generator that can take markdown files and generate a collection of html files with a given theme. It is a very useful tool that can automate a great deal of work that would otherwise be hand coded.
Speaking of hexo I thought I would make my first post about one of the static site generators features called tags. Hexo tags are a way that I can quickly append generated html content in my blog posts.
