Nice URLs

It blown my mind when I discovered URL rewriting 15 years ago. It was probably in the permalink setting of a Wordpress admin panel. Back then, a lot of URLs of the internet ended by a file extension like .html, .php or .asp

A decent URL is one that humans can read. It hints the page purpose and reflects the information architecture. My first article on this blog tells how to configure Nginx to have nice URLs on a blog powered by Vitepress.
