The source code for


Local development and deployment are assisted by Docker, Docker Compose, and Drone CI. The .drone.yml file is specific to my environment and private image repository, so if you’re adapting my customizations to your environment, make sure you change the `image: settings.

To develop locally:

$ docker-compose up

This will start a persistent container for nginx (to serve content at localhost:8045 and sass (to compile changed SCSS files). It will also run pelican on your content dir.

If you make content or theme changes and want to regenerate the site, re-run the pelican container:

$ docker-compose run pelican

A template article exists in templates/ If you use Vim, you can add an autocmd to inject this template into any new file in content. Example snippet for .vimrc:

if has("autocmd")
    augroup templates
        autocmd BufNewFile */blogdir/content/*.md 0r %:s?content/.*?templates/
    augroup END
