The stuff I do


I am Adrien Fabre (aka statox), a server software engineer at Dashlane in Paris, France.

This website is just a place for me to talk a bit about my side projects and keep a few notes for myself.
My plan is to talk about the topics that I like (in no particular order): Vim, Linux and system administration, doing fun simulations in the browser, DIY projects, improving people's privacy on the internet and software development in general.

You can check my social page to contact me.

Because I want to be able to know how many people read my rambling I use an analytics platform on this website.

However I think the fight for a more privacy friendly internet is one of the most important to lead currently. That's why I use goatcounter: It is an amazing privacy friendly tool which does nothing else than counting how many time my pages are loaded. So no cookie 🍪 for you on this site, nor any other invasive tracking method.


My professional experience is mainly focused on backend development: That's what I like and what interests me the most. So when I started creating a website I wanted it to be dead simple so that I get things done quickly and without friction. That's why I chose to use eleventy a simpler static site generator.

And as I'm not exactly a css expert and wanted something simpler than bootstrap I went with newcss a very simple css framework.

The source code of the site is on Github and uses travis ci to automatically build and publish each update.
