I am exceedingly lazy and my desire to retain knowledge of how my own blog works is dismal. For my own benefit I made a cheat sheet to remind me what I do when I feel like harking on about some crap on this site. I am edging towards doing away with the whole deployment bit and just making the output into the live site. Like most people I just want an easy life... and I can't stop fiddling with it.
# QUICKSTART: cd ~/nikola ## start virtualenv source bin/activate cd tregeagle nikola new_post -e --format=markdown --title="A-new-post" ## open site on local dev server nikola serve --browser OR nikola auto -b ## rebuild site with new post nikola build ## apply custom deployment commands from conf.py nikola deploy ## stop virtualenv deactivate
