Deploying Jekyll with Concourse CI

Sometimes the best way of learning something is to just dive in and start using it. I find it really useful to pick an existing working implementation of something and the build it using something else. In this case it’s my blog build and deployment. This was working perfectly fine using docker and jenkins but I got tired of just how heavy Jenkins was. If you just want to now what the pipeline file looks like then check here.

Sculpin to Jekyll

A while ago I found Sculpin through @opdavies it looked really great, a PHP based blogging engine. It’s pretty decent but there are a few issues with it. Namely this, there’s already a PR for it but it’s not been merged in and doesn’t look like it will any time soon. The bug renders it all pretty useless when trying to modify things. I was initially learning sculpin so that I could move Mental Health Awareness week over to it, but after trying to implement the existing theme in sculpin I found it nearly impossible to get anywhere fast.
