Refactoring my blog stats generatorI’ve spent a couple of hours improving my personal Perl 5 script to generate Jekyll blog statistics. Since version 67aa9eb of Jekyll Simple Stats there are a few little improvements and fixes that I discovered when the year turned to 2020. Yes, changing the year was good because I had pretty much no posts in the new year (this one is the very second) and therefore a couple of wrong counting within the script shown up.
Now the script handles correctly the abscence of either posts or tags within a graph (Perl’s autovivification is really a great way to handle the abscence of data!), provides a better grid and centers the tics with months. I have to admit that my Gnuplot knowledge is really at a low level, therefore suggestions and improvements are really welcome.
Of course, this blog stats have been updated consequently.
