Getting the Most Out of Trello
Trello is the central tool I use to organize the many facets of my life and projects. While I use many other systems for managing projects and data, like Github and Podio, I find that having one place as the “dashboard” for what I need to be working on or thinking about is essential. Trello is a blank slate to begin with, which is great, but it leaves you to figure out your own system.
The Post-CMS Landscape
In The No-db Landscape I wrote about the differences between “flat-file” CMSs and static site generators. Today we’ll have a look at the idea of a “Post-CMS” and some new developments. I didn’t make up it up, but I love the idea of a “Post CMS” world and it should resonate with anyone who has devoted countless hours to installing, configuring, updating and coding big content management systems. To my mind, “post-CMS” means the disaggregation and, in many cases, elimination of the component parts of a CMS.
Search Options for Static Websites
Here are some options for adding search and/or filters to your static website. These have various approaches, costs and ease of implementation. Lunr.js (plugins: Jeyll, Metalsmith) List.js Swiftype Tipue Search Google Custom Search Engine Tapir Jekyll search with JSON The less-technically inclined may want to look at something like Swiftype (paid, but has a limited free option), Tapir or Tipue. I use List.js extensively for filtering and recommend it highly.
