We had our Hugo workshop on 6/29 with our partners Reboot. I learned a lot about giving workshops, so we intend to have more in the future. We’re also working on our fall lineup of Meetups, but will be relatively quiet in July.
Now that I have 8 static websites deployed into AWS using S3 and CloudFront I need to automate the deployment process so that I can make changes quickly and get them to production with less effort. To that end I have developed some scripts and configurations that automate the deployment of this site to a QA environment and production when changes are pushed to either branch. I will be describing this work in probably 3 parts. This is the first.
This site is built with Jekyll and was hosted on
GitHub Pages until recently, with all of the
commit-to-deploy goodness that it gives you for free. I found that hosting on GitHub does
have some downsides though:
ng-static-site-generator is a webpack-based command line build tool that builds an Angular app and Jekyll-style blog entry html files into a static html and css website. It also supports building a client app so you can have static pages that are also capable of running dynamic functionality coded in Angular.
You can find workspaces anywhere. Spark Labs offer much more: everything you need to get off the ground and running (or growing!), from infrastructure support and business services to events and networking.
