New Blog Format


Carl Burks

Recently I've been working to make my blog more useful. The first change I've made is to make use of Flask and Frozen Flask. I will be running a live copy of Flask locally so I can edit articles via a web interface and running Flask Frozen to create the static content. The next change I've made is to store the data in a SQLite database instead of flat files locally. This will allow me to query data and implement a local find. The next feature I've added was to allow multiple publications. My oldest son expressed interest in writing, and I thought it would be great to set him up with a blog. I also plan to split up my blog into multiple publication with a focused application of content. This will allow me to have my content better organized. I will be keeping this blog for programming but plan on making specific ones for the following topics:

  • life
  • music
  • general updates
