Making progress on Pelican
Sat 26 February 2022
Beyond the basics of creating web content, there's also the learning curve on Pelican itself. I have to say that I find the documentation to be a bit weak, as it is presented more in the form of examples or tutorials, rather than in the form of a user manual. A good example of user-manual style documentation is the Redis command reference. And then there's reStructuredText! This also is a new learning curve for me. It's not horrible, but will certainly take some time to develop some comfort with it.
So there you go; I'm dealing with several new tools/languages, all of which are separate and yet interrelated. Fortunately I am a software guy; I get computer languages. But the world of content creation and presentation is very different from the embedded and numerical computation programming world I grew up in.
