I’ve had a busy week, and I’ll have a busy weekend working. I have documentation to write and code to er… code. So tonight I wanted to do something fun.
It takes about 12 seconds to get up and running on Heroku and then you can blog with static Markdown files and publish with Git.
P.A.Q. (Possibly Asked Questions):
Q. Why the stupid name?
A. Because I live in a world of really lame puns and I had originally planned to have the script fetch Markdown files from a public Dropbox folder, rather than store them in the Git repo… so that would have meant the blog and the actual posts it published would be living kind of far apart.
Q. *Groan* OK, so why didn’t you do that?
A. I got lazy, and it’s less folders to futz with. Public Dropbox folders are being phased out for new users, and I like the idea of being able to put this thing onto a free Heroku tier and not have to rely on anything else. It’s instant, free, lightweight, minimalist blogging.
Q. Another tiny app? Do you ever build anything, you know… big?
A. Yup, just not in my spare time and the people that pay me monies generally don’t like it when I give their code away.
OK, now I’m just bored and making things up because it’s late and I’m tired, but can’t sleep.
