How does this site work?

This website is made of two parts. With two separate templating engines, showing you content, depending on where you are and who you are. For generating the vast majority of content that doesn't change for example, a post to the main site or the homepage it uses the tera templating engine, and zola as the static site generator. Inside the templates for zola, there exist templates inside the templates, and these get rendered real time on each request by Caddy and by extension the Sprig templating engine. These caddy templates are used at the footer of all the pages to show where you are connecting to, and where you’re connecting from. For the ~pages this also uses caddy to show a directory tree of all the user submitted content. These are access from each user's home directory and get updated in real time experimentation with templating for these files may be in the future.
