Build process of this log25 August 2021, on Olivier's log
I write the content in gemtext and kiln does the gemini+html generation. Thank you adnano for the great stuff!
I usually use a Makefile to ease and unify local development, so that I just have to type `make dev` to get started.
In this case I want to watch all the files and call `kiln build` on every change. I also launch a local http server (php in this case) and open my browser.
I had to learn some Makefile magic to have both serve-html and watch targets run in parallel:
dev: build $(MAKE) --no-print-directory -j2 dev-tasks dev-tasks: watch serve-html serve-html: @xdg-open http://127.0.0.1:8087 @php -S 127.0.0.1:8087 -t dist/html watch: @inotifywait -m -e close_write -r --exclude "(dist|.git)" . | while read events; do kiln build; done
The code is hosted on git.sr.ht. On every push, a build is triggered on build.sr.ht to call `kiln build` and deploy the gemini and html sites to srht.site.
I am positively impressed by sr.ht. It is really fast. Having a link to the build on the output of git push is very nice.
However I find the web interface not always intuitive (words that I am not used to, confusion between git page and project page).
