When we first started CloudCannon we thought that we’d only ever serve static sites. However the sheer number of requests for blog support lead us to reconsider.
Lately we’ve been working on an integration with Jekyll, a static site generator which has become extremely popular.
Our Jekyll feature set is currently in private beta right now. To get early access to blogging on CloudCannon head over to cloudcannon.com/jekyll.
Three big changes you might have noticed about how CloudCannon looks:
You can now host multiple websites on a single domain. E.g. Example.com might point to your main site, while sale.example.com might point to a new separate landing page.
This functionality is enabled by creating a new ‘website’ under an already used domain. Detection that the domain is already used on your primary site is automatic and will present you new settings.
Syncing is faster now. Small updates should be live almost instantly.
Adding a template to a website will also be much faster now.
Filenames are now smarter. They span over two lines and truncate in the middle.
We’ve added some sexy alert messages that pop out of the bottom right of your screen to let you know what’s going on.
