Lots of catching up with people this week. It's Thursday night / Friday "morning" and I'm reflecting.
Had a call with Amanda K one morning, sent her a link to When Tailwinds Vanish: The Internet in the 2020s. She was interested in my blog layout here and was asking about whether it needed a dev or not.
And then I setup Forestry so that Amanda could use it "without a dev". Deploy is Netlify, because Simply Jekyll won't run on Github Pages. I'll need to do a proper HOWTO and properly setup the forked repo as a template repo to make it easy for people to run their own version. Sample site up here: https://quizzical-bartik-446efa.netlify.app
That's one framework Jekyll, a free tier git code hosting with Github, a second free tier commercial service Forestry, and then a third free tier build/hosting service in Netlify. That's a lot of heavy lifting for "just" a blog + notes. Forestry from a day to day, week to week perspective is the most valuable part of that: the actual editing app.
Why are these two sites not on Fission? Forestry needs to connect to a git provider is the short answer.
And now, to bed.
