Well, it took longer than I would've liked but I got Github CI working with this blog! Finally learned how to use Github workflows.
You can now see my posts automatically go from my source-control here in Sandra.snow into the Pxtl.Github.io repo. Particularly interesting is that because the Sandra.Snow project I'm using for the blog is .NET Framework 4, the runner is actually running windows. I didn't know that was possible for GitHub.
The only thing that annoys me is that I had to set it up using PATs, which have a 90 day expiry. So every 90 days I'll have to refresh the token that allows the Sandra.Snow repo to write to the Pxtl repo? That seems labourious.
Probably I should reverse it around - have the Action running in my Pxtl repo so it's pulling from the Sandra.Snow repo. But for now, this works.
This post is my first attempt to run it for a new post. Fingers crossed!
Edit: it works!
Edit2: and now it doesn't flood the log with complaints about line-endings.comments powered by Disqus
