Ever since I discovered posterous, I wanted to post by email, but to my own blog (I do not like others to host my content).
I was running Drupal by that time, and I was able to implement email to Drupal, using some modules I don't remember now. After that I have tried with Wordpress and that was also possible.
Now I'm using Jekyll, I really love Jekyll but it is hard to post to it.
Normal flow to post to a Jekyll blog
- Use your computer (where you have your source files) and write your post
- Generate your site
- Rsync your computer to your server, so your new content be online
What I normally did was:
- Log into my server
- Write my post
- Generate my site directly to my
My flow to post now
Thanks to Makusomi, now all I have to do is:
- Send an email with my post (from anywhere)
That is it, a post-commit hook then push the changes to the master
git repository, and there a post-receive hook deploy the site. I
have another computer making
git pull from time to time from the
master as a backup.
