Oh wow, I finally closed out the Publ 0.4.0 milestone. So, wow, this is a pretty big deal for me.
Changes since 0.3.23:
- Fixed a bug with absolute paths in asset links
- Added a default error handler if there’s no global error template configured
- Finally added the ability to configure the Markdown processor, both at the global and per-template level
So that closes out the last three issues before I was ready to consider this usable by a wider audience. Neat.
There’s a lot of stuff I want to do for 1.0 of course, but also more importantly I need to vastly improve the documentation on this site, as well as collect things to make it easier for people to get started with Publ. I would absolutely invite people to make suggestions; have you looked into Publ, and been confused about what exactly to do? Please let me know!
Also, Publ itself is built to be a tool, and not a complete standalone thing. I will absolutely talk your ear off about how I think a more user-friendly publishing frontend could be built, as well as easier ways of actually installing/deploying this places.
One of the things I am considering doing is running some minimal Publ-oriented hosting for folks, where I’d set up a private git repository and a minimal site and make it hopefully easier for people to actually do their thing, and maybe charge a marginal amount for it (say, $X/month for X GB of storage, and include SSL and basic site assistance and whatever). If you’d be interested in that sort of thing, again, please let me know!
