#100DaysOfWeb in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Days 29-32: Static Sites
Lecture: Your 4 day overview
0:00 A quick overview of what we are going
0:02 to be doing over the next four days
0:04 on static site generators.
0:05 Firstly, we're going to be playing with Pelican
0:08 which is a Python-based static site generator.
0:12 Going through the next few videos, we will explain
0:14 what a static site generator is
0:16 and I will go through all of the detail you need
0:19 to be able to install it locally
0:22 and then get your site up and running.
0:25 Now, what's different about these four days
0:27 compared to the other chapters in the course
0:29 is for the first two days
0:31 I actually want you to watch all the videos.
0:35 So actually go through the entire chapter of content
0:38 don't stop and play.
0:42 Days three and four are for playing.
0:44 And the reason is, is because when I created
0:47 the content, it was probably a bit too staggered
0:50 and haphazard to cut you off after one day
0:55 and then make you wait another day
0:57 to get cracking on some more content.
1:00 What made more sense, because of the nature
1:02 of this chapter with static site generators
1:04 was to just show you the start-to-finish.
1:06 So, create your website, make changes
1:08 do things with it, add more content
1:11 and then deploy it.
1:12 Do all of that upfront, learn how to do it
1:15 and then days three and four
1:18 is when you can actually do it yourself.
1:20 So feel free to follow along in the first two days
1:23 but really, just try and understand.
1:25 Do the basics if you must.
1:27 Days three and four, go nuts.
1:30 So, add posts to your site, have fun with a theme
1:34 go into Pelican themes, get all that stuff going.
1:36 Play with the HTML, create static pages
1:39 really flesh out your site, make it your own.
1:42 So that's days three and four
1:43 and I think that actually will work better for you
1:46 because once you get sucked into this with Pelican
1:48 and how easy this static site generator stuff is
1:51 you're not going to want to stop, to then watch more videos.
1:55 So, have a go, have a crack
1:57 and enjoy the next couple of days.
