Nik Spyratos TheCapeGreek


Heyo, I'm Nik. I'm a Greek-South African software developer currently based in Cape Town. This website is a space for me to write, play, and share ideas.

Like most developers, I have opinions on things. This doesn't reflect the views of any client or employer of mine, past or present.


Like many other developers, I work on a few side projects. Not all of these are always completed, but the learning experience and research process is a way to keep sharp.

Recent projects include:

You are here. See: recursion. Built with Jigsaw & Tailwind

Like Goku Self-hosted Nextcloud & Monica PRM using Ansible + Terraform
