Blogging without a database

Today, my old blog ends and a new one starts. Say hello to Pico CMS. In time, I plan to add tips and tricks that I learn into this blog.

Installation Tips

  • PICO CMS http://picocms.org/
  • Don't use the composer. Rather install it from the tar file.
  • Extract the tar file into an empty directory. Else you'll have files/folders every where in the parent folder.
    • If by chance you made that mistake, you can remove the tar files/folders by doing this:
      • tar tfz pico.tar.gz | xargs rm -rf
      • rename pico.tar.gz with the actual file name
  • Select a theme
  • Place your blog post into the content folder. I recommend naming them YEARMONTHDAY-Title-.md. For example 20200823-FirstPost.md
