Got started with Nikola. I used Wordpress for a loooong time, and now ready to explore this whole headless CMS territory.

Some notes for my reference here:

  • new posts: nikola new_post

  • edit post with VSCode

  • check it out locally, tweak until happy: nikola auto --browser

  • redundant step (because of auto above) but for clarity: nikola build : static site is generated and all goes into an "output" folder

  • sync the output folder to S3, giving it public access: aws s3 sync output s3:// --acl public-read

  • heyyyy!
