Developing This Blog
1 min read • May 20, 2019 • Mark A. McFate
I realized today that I previously documented how to “begin” a blog like this using Docksal to assist, but I failed to remind myself how to make structural/programming changes to it now that it is well-established. Since I’d like to add BleveSearch to this blog, and similar sites, I need to make some “structural” changes, and I want to do so locally before pushing them to production.
The process of making updates like this is basically:
- Open a local terminal and navigate to this project. In my case that means
- If there’s no
./themesfolder here I need to add one and populate it like so:
mkdir themes && cd $_; git clone https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-minimalist-theme.git.
- Now, do a
fin upto get Docksal restarted. This will provide a local address where you can access the project in a browser, but it WILL NOT WORK!
- So do
fin developto get it re-started properly in our Hugo environment. Just remember that your terminal/shell is running the local development copy, so you have to execute a
CTRL-cin the terminal to terminate it.
And that’s a wrap. Until next time…
