V2Ray core doesn't provide subscribe feature, this is cool because it's considered unnecessery to people who self-host just one or several V2Ray services. If using service bought from websites, however, one may have to find a client with subscribe support to get a better user experience.

Up to now, there are several subscribe formats; I'm gonna explore to resolve some of them on my own demand, using Python or even other languages.

What is Dotfiles

This name came from the dot prefix of file name, for example, your probably most familiar one: ~/.bashrc.

So when we say dotfiles, we're talking about user level application configuration, which should be stored as text files in ~/.config, according to XDG Base Directory Specification).

However dotfiles may be at anywhere under your home directory: ~/.bashrc, ~/.zshrc, ~/.ssh/config. Apparently, not all apps follow the XDG standard.

Adding an image is supposed to be easy in markdown. Syntax is like: ![alt](path "title"), in which:

  • alt is alternate text, provides alternative information for the image if user cannot view it for some reason like slow connection, wrong path or user is using screen reader;
  • path is image file link, most important part;
  • title is tooltip text (optional), appears when cursor is floating over the image.

In this article I will mainly talk about the image file path or link or whatever you name it. But if you want to make a quick choice in different solutions, follow the map below and jump to the section directly.

Quick Choice

Signup an AWS account

A credit card is needed for signup the account, see support types below.

AWS Account Support Credit Card Types


AWS accounts include 12 months of free tier access, including use of Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, and Amazon DynamoDB.

We will create an Arch Linux EC2 instance in this article, and setup a V2Ray service to run server for Shadowsocks and MTProto.

It's not only Amazon that provides one-year free VPS, but also Google. Maybe I'll cover on that later.

Local - Hexo Site

Reference: Hexo and its documentation.

Hexo is a blog framework based on Node.js. In this article, we will initialize a Hexo site on local disk, and talk about how to publish it to GitHub Pages, which would use Git indirectly.
