Maybe it is the quarantining, but I have been fiddling with some random ideas in-between meetings and watching my daughter nap.
One idea that I keep coming back to is having all of this site’s content up on github and then working on a simple FTP flow where changes get uploaded to the site directly.
The only problem is that, because I use Dreamweaver for all of the content writing, having an intermediate markdown->HTML service like all the other cool sites won’t really work. What will be posted will be the raw HTML.
The biggest reason why I want to do this is only partly because I think others will contribute or file issues. The biggest reason is for me to personally have some level of history of the changes made to a file and to ensure that when I jump between the two laptops on desk and my sofa, I am never accidentally editing the “non-latest” version of a file. Dreamweaver has some challenges with its local cache of files, so I have found myself accidentally overwriting a newer version of a file when jumping between machines.
How terrible of an idea is this on the scale of 40 to ?
