My collection of medical calculators and checklists -

Posted on August 12, 2021 | Reading time 2 minutes

I’ve now been working for over 1,5 years as a doctor… Well, it’s still a bit weird to say it like that. But with practicing, I’ve become a less regular user of Anki. Depending on schedule, it’s difficult to finish your cards every day. Since I’ve started working, I’ve always carried a small notebook with me. In there, I scribble down small things throughout the day. In the evenings or on the weekend, I clean them up and put them in a Word document.

The document has grown into a remarkable size. However, there is one catch: accessing it is not always easy. At work, I could open it on my cellphone, but the structure is not that useful on a small device. This is why I decided to move notes, lists and formulas to a small webpage. It even contains a few calculators, which I found useful or interesting in everyday work.

I’ve never been really creative with names, so I just took the first domain that came to mind (and that wasn’t taken), and put the stuff up on which is a conjunction of medical checklist.

Technical aspects

The site itself is built with Hugo. With new projects, I try to incorporate a few things for me to learn. I was already a bit familiar with Hugo, but this time I wanted to start from the ground up. Starting with the naked tailwind based theme from @dirkolbrich{:target="_blank"}, I’ve modified slightly and added bilingual support.

Thanks to the new GitHub Actions, there is now an action to build a Hugo page, without relying on third party services.

The page itself is hosted on GitHub pages, and the code-behind-repository is publicly available via @ChrisK91/Checklists{:target="_blank"}.

There are a few calculators, which are based on Vue.js (since I don’t really know about the new JavaScript stuff). But they work, and that’s enough for me. The site itself is fully static, since I wanted to package it as a web app, so it works without internet connectivity. But so far I didn’t have too much luck with that… Especially offline caching makes this difficult.

If you’re interested in the new page, head over to, and have a look around. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
