Still working on it.

Still working on getting this thing off the ground again. I just need to get the right side completed and the search capability integrated. Once that is completed, I can publish and worry about the other integration later. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is not an oncoming train. Items left to go This is a kind of living list right now. Expect mods as I go on.

Progress of a sort

After too much time playing with hugo_jupyter, I found a better tool. It is called nb_hugo_exporter and it does what I need. I might even do some adjustments for my own customization. As it is, it does a good job, but if I tweak it a bit, I can get it to use the front matter tags I have entered into the notebook instead of updating/creating new ones. My vagrant setup does seem to work as required and the installation of a slightly older python to handle the hugo_jupyter module was managed with Anaconda - well the Miniconda varient anyway.

Of course, it's not all easy

I discovered that I can’t get the hugo_jupyter module to install on my laptop for some unspecified reason due to a collision with the existing software. This is why I don’t typically upgrade but rather do a clean install. Most things work, but between the system, homebrew, and conda, my python3 setup is not working properly. I guess a backup to bootable image and a fresh install will solve most of the issues, but in the interim, I need to get the generator fully functional.

The new generator works

Why did I wait so long to do this? The initial testing cutover went well, I have to do some work to re-organize the photos, but it seems that hugo will work out for the site. I need to do some serious reading, as it is a lot different, but the theming system seems to be easier to use and the short codes look like they will be quite useful.

The previous article was premature!

It seems that the previous fix was not sufficient and after a lot of attempts, I gave up on it. The issues I was having were not too easy to solve, and after hitting many dead ends and not wanting to convert things again, I decided to let it sit for a while. Apparently I get rat-holed on problems occasionally and when I know that not that many people use the site, the priority level is not all that high to fix things.
