Slowly but surely making progress on getting the blog authoring home lab set up. Lots of under the hood fiddling with personal machinery across a bunch of machines. Learned a lot of Ansible, NFS, and Samba. The goal was to get an environment where one machine can be mostly headless and build the pages automatically. At the same time, the base blog content could be remotely accessible via a home wifi LAN. A LAN that conveniently reaches my back porch so I can author while sitting outside, a glass of bourbon nearby.
The old scheme with WordPress and a desktop tool definitely had a lighter path to posting. With some work, though, I’ll be able to smooth out the process and get a bunch of upsides from the Pelican ecosystem.
