MANILA FUNCTIONAL

Except mine runs my own blog generator.

Editing

iA Writer > TIG 1

I prefer writing in iA Writer on the iPad, it’s simple, it’s multimarkdown, and I’ve had it since version 1 on an iPhone 4s.

Publishing

The strategy is simple, and common. Push to a repo, TravisCI picks up the tag, runs the build instructions which has a step to clone my generator, jenny, and run it against a clone of the blog source repo, and then finally push to gh-pages branch.

So here’s the travis config to automate the generate a jenny blog.

language: bash

before_install:
  - sudo apt-get -qq update
  - git clone https://github.com/fletcher/MultiMarkdown-6.git mmd
  - (cd mmd && make release && cd build && make && sudo make install)
  - git clone https://github.com/hmngwy/jenny.git jenny
  - (cd jenny; sudo make install)
  - mkdir .dist

script:
  - jenny

deploy:
  fqdn: manilafunctional.com
  provider: pages
  local_dir: .dist
  skip_cleanup: true
  github_token: $GITHUB_TOKEN
  target_branch: gh-pages
  on:
    branch: master

  1. I‘ve tried Git2Go, iOS Locations don’t work, and the last update was last May. Also tried Working Copy, but the UI is just embarrassing to use around designers, and such a pain to use.  ↩
