WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Anyone, could you please write a detailed tutorial on setting up Pelican/Hyde on WebFaction along with domain/website/webapp etc settings? So that if one follows this tutorial he/she can generate a demo website without any hiccups even without scripting knowledge or python knowledge.

I tried many times, many tutorials but get stuck for this reason or that.

I use Nikola static-site generator, but building my site on my desktop machine (check getting-started document.

So, my suggestion is to first play with e.g. Nikola on your machine and when becoming familiar with it a bit, then after your site is built, you only have to (s)ftp your

../path-to-nikola-site/output

folder to the webfaction host. In order to work there you can use free domain and configure your site as static - that's all.

That's similar to what I do too.

I only have one 'static' app in my webfaction account where I rsync the output directory from my desktop.

I've also put all my static generator's configs and data, minus the output directory, in git, so I can easily switch work between my desktop and laptop.

Imho, using more than one app (static or symbolic link) and installing python or ruby packages on the server makes things more complicated than they can be.

This is good practice for all static generators, like pelican, hyde, jekill, etc
