PapaScott I like big blogs and I cannot lie! 🐘

Netlify

I didn’t mention it when I moved from GitHub Pages, but for the past couple of months this blog has been hosted at Netlify, a platform for building and hosting static websites.

It works very well with jekyll, the software that generates this blog, and means I no longer need to build the site on my own machine to publish it. I just push my changes to my repository at GitHub, which Netlify continuously monitors for changes, and the blog it automatically updated, usually within a minute.

It also offers free one-click managed SSL, a global CDN, and is free for unlimited single-user sites, whether commercial or personal.

And combined with Netlify CMS, I can edit and post directly from GitHub and don’t need a local jekyll installation at all. But that’s a subject for another post…
