This week Chrome is releasing an update that will show “Not Secure” on any site that uses HTTP. This is part of an ongoing strategy to create a more secure web. To assist with this change, we have added free automatic SSL certificates on all CloudCannon connected domains. This draws our SSL private beta to a close making it available for all CloudCannon users.
GitHub Pages is a reliable, performant Jekyll hosting provider which has recently added support for SSL. It’s a great hosting platform but has a major limitation, you can’t use custom Jekyll plugins. Today we’re looking at how CloudCannon can help resolve this limitation.
Jekyll is often pigeon-holed as a tool for developers to write their blog. This is just one of the many great uses of Jekyll. We’re always interested in exploring unconventional use cases which push the boundaries in Jekyll. Today we’re releasing three MIT licensed templates which do exactly that.
Having a short Jekyll build time helps you iterate faster while developing and goes a long way to improving the experience for editors on CloudCannon. In this post, we’re going over how to identify bottlenecks in your Jekyll build and tips on how to address them.
Our main goal at CloudCannon is to make collaboration between developers and non-technical editors seamless. To an extent we’ve achieved this with editing a Jekyll site; editors can update HTML, Markdown, front matter, blog posts, collections and data files without knowing anything about Jekyll or HTML but what about Git? Recently we’ve been working to achieve the same level of integration for Git workflows. In this post I’m going over some of the new workflows CloudCannon supports.
