Skip to Content - Under the hood

I’m posting this mostly to document how I currently have setup and configured. Over the years I’ve gone from HTML to CFML to a variety of CMS systems to Wordpress and then a variety of static blog generators before finally picking Pelican.

And for a long time I just had a local Pelican install and publishing was all a manual process.

The other issue I had was having to re-setup Pelican each time I got a new computer (or switched Linux distros which I do quite often).


  1. Eliminate the local setup and Dockerize my Pelican install
  2. Automate my deployment with GitLab CI

Stay tuned.
