It looks interesting ...

To answer your question: No, I have no net presence, but I have a question.  Is this what created your site?

EDIT:  Never mind ... I see Bluefish there.  big_smile

Certainly looks interesting and they know that search engine is needed.

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

No, my site was created by hand. I recommend newbies to do it like this. It is a great learning experience and it discourages you from doing something too fancy.

I only learned about Nikola earlier this week. Right now I am just curious and will test without publishng the results. I installed Nikola yesterday night.

If I like it I may re-create my photo albums that are created using jAlbum today.

My first finding is installing Nikola assumes python-dev is installed and the installation instruction fails to mention this. A very quick response on the help forum saved the day.

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

I did websites in the 90's when things were simpler.  I have a personal website here locally.  My index.html is my "homepage" with half a dozen sub pages.  I deleted Bluefish years ago - to bloated for my liking.

I've checked out your site - love your boat.  big_smile

I was thinking maybe this might be a nice app to use locally.

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

Let's talk Nikola for a change.

I now have a few hours of tinkering behind me and it seems Nikola performes as advertised if you follow the instructions to the letter. Early days yet so I am not able to create something on my own accord -- I am still at the follow-tutorial-stage. There isn't a ton of tutorials and documentation but an active user forum exists.

Hyde is another alternative. I opted for Nikola because I found basically no documentation for Hyde.

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

More on static web site generators:

I found four when searching for static web generator in our repos: Hyde, Jekyll, webgen0.5 and lazygal. The last one may not qualify as it is claimed to be a web album generator.

Searching for static web site generator on the web results in a large number of hits including some overviews.

Jekyll certainly wins in terms of beautifull home page and github reference, but i can't see integrated "search engine".

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

Here is a somewhat more informative Hyde site.

Too much of that thing called work today so no other news on this apart from me changingthe subject to better reflect where I think this is going.

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

For /me all this looks way to complicated while offering way^way^way to little (If I would go to that static route I'd probably bash something up, at least that way I'd know how exactly its supposed to work, meantime wordpress wins by a big margin, again thats just my view on things).

Re: Static web site generators (was Anyone using Nikola on #!...)

I have now, finally (other obligations galore), worked my way through some Nikola tutorials and created a couple of web albums that I decided were ready for publication late yesterday:

Photos from Sweden
International Multihull Meetings

Yes, very basic but good enough for me. I have not spent much energy on looks.

Creating these albums was mostly a straight forward exercise once I hade whorked a bit with the tutorials. The only hickup was a conflict between Pil and Pillow. Once I got rid of Pillow album creation worked as adverticed.

Publishing (read up-loading to host server) exposed me to a bug in Nikola. While the album works perfectly when I test it locally links to the photos in the index.html files don't work on the hosting server. This is easy enough to fix using sed -- once you know what the problem is. Now that I got this sorted I am ready to ditch jAlbum which is going fully commercial by becomming ad/nag-ware.

I have been told the abovementioned bug only affects albums created by Nikola. Blogs and traditional web sites should be OK.
