And yay! My systemd timer + Django management command meant the schedule post correctly posted this morning. Next up, tying in auto-social-media posting.
The post isn’t meant as a tutorial, more like, “Oh man I haven’t blogged in forever I might as well write a thought-stream about what I did,” blog post. 😅
I moved HelloWebBooks.com’s website from a static site generator to a full Django site and wrote up a bit about the process: http://hellowebbooks.com/news/moved-hellowebbookscom-static-site-generator-full-django-site/
I’m specifically talking about program-y stuff here (and for me, today, systemd stuff) but you know, this goes for most things.
And it’s deployed on DigitalOcean. I tried Heroku but there were some errors I couldn’t solve with everything abstracted away, and it was fun figuring out server stuff.
Okay, going to write a blog post now using my fancypants cms.
I’m new to using WagtailCMS, and hopefully having better blog authoring/scheduling tools will encourage me to blog more. (Oops.)
This’ll give me a lot more flexibility on orders and payments, and enable to me to build it out fully into a membership site (so I can host my own courses, since I’m paying a ton to host them elsewhere.)
Front-end, it’s looks about 99% the same. But it’s been moved from a static site to a full back-end using @djangoproject and @WagtailCMS powering the blog.
All my whining about server administration can cease! (Well, maybe for a minute.) Because I finally successfully deployed the new version of @hellowebbooks’ website: https://hellowebbooks.com
By that, I mean like the super duper basic commands. I’m not a power user. But it’s so dang useful.
