Migrated NinjaCalc from a Vue.js based app to Next.js/React based app. This took quite a long time to migrate, I’m estimating about 32 hours to migrate all functionality except for two calculators to Next.js. Deployments are now automatically done by Vercel (I’m using the “Hobby” tier which is free forever). Unit/functional CICD testing has also been added with GitHub Actions. Commit https://github.com/gbmhunter/NinjaCalc/commit/458137fb79237562acb8a3f3d09a13d30438bb49 was the beginning of the migration.

Added search functionality. When I first moved this blog from a “dynamic” Wordpress-based server to static hosting and Hugo, I thought search functionality was just one of those luxuries I would have to give up.

See the blog post We Now Have Search for more information!
