For a long time I've been looking for an easy way to have a low maintenance and (preferably) low cost blog(ish) kind of thing. Basically a place where I can write some things that may be useful to others.
This is it's first entry, and I'll explain what I used and how I published this blog.
- Install nikola
pip install "Nikola[extras]"
- Start up a project and see if it works
nikola init cd your-project nikola build nikola serve
- Create an aws s3 bucket and sync the output to it and let it be publicly readable
aws s3 sync --delete --acl public-read output/ s3://my.blog.bucket/
That's basically it, then you can skim through the config file that was created by the init command to make changes in order to customize whatever you desire.
