What The Heck1 July 2012
This site is mainly a test to see if I can get OakTree working on GitHub pages. Turns out it does. It’s not perfect, of course – it requires I do my own syncing and HTML generation which would likely be better-served by going through Jekyll.
Overall, it’s fairly simple. I make changes to the sources branch of the
pages repo, run my
sync_branches.sh script, and push the
rebuilt HTML to the master branch on GitHub. The only annoyance right now is
that I still receive notifications every time I push something to the repo, but
I suppose I’ll have to live with that.
Overall, this gave me an opportunity to work on a few things in OakTree and let me do something unusual. Plus it gave me a look into how I might go about transitioning Spifftastic, my main blog, over to OakTree whenever I finally get around to doing that.
What will this blog be for? I haven’t figured that out yet. Possibly the less coherent writing I do that I don’t necessarily want to put on Spifftastic. I have a few ideas in mind, but I imagine most of them will end up being put to use for Spifftastic rather than going over here. Oh well, I’ll find something stupid to use this for.
