Building this Website

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

This is a series of posts which technically describes how Not Even Odd is built. It is primarily meant as a guide for static website creation using TiddlyWiki.

This article serves as an introduction and several ones will follow which describes the details.

Introduction

End of April 2015, I decided to create the Not Even Odd website so I could share stuff.

I decided to try using TiddlyWiki as an authoring tool as I think highly of this program and I was aware it has some export capability which could conceivably be used to generate a set of pages that makes a static website. This is not the most typical use case for TiddlyWiki, so it seemed fun to try out.

Overview

In brief, I use TiddlyWiki running on top of the node.js javascript platform in order to generate static HTML pages of the site. The git revision control system is used to control my collection of "tiddlers". Another git repository containing the static output is stored here in GitHub and served on the web using the Github pages feature.

Setup

setup node.js and TiddlyWiki

install git and get a github account

optionally get a domain
