A (human) index that likes to code
Also drinks way too much coffee

Hey! I made a thing, do check it out! The project’s called EncryptedPage, and you can kinda guess what it does. Let me walk you through why I made it.
A three-hour project that I created to see if it is possible to perform client-side decryption on encrypted content. This can not only be useful for paywalls (I’m sorry), but also for private blog posts, for none other than my blog! It is also a crucial component for the major project I am working on, which I still have to keep a secret because it is still being worked on.
Hey, hey. Hear me out now. Sometimes, you just need to have blog posts private to the general public; very sensitive information, such as progress on secret projects, personal life updates, and other things that I would prefer to keep to myself or my employers. If you know me well, I don’t really have social media, other than Twitter, which means I need to have a method to “set posts to private”, while still maintaining public posts. As I do not trust third parties with my private posts, the simplest method is to create my own means to do so.
I hope you find this project at least semi-interesting. Maybe instead of me, you could be the one who extends the functionality! If you are interested, go over to the repository, and contribute!
