Time Jumps

  1. I keep the code for my site on Github.
  2. I keep the 'content' folder in Dropbox.
  3. I install Dropbox on my server.
  4. I use Capistrano to deploy the code from Github to my server, and then have Capistrano create a symlink inside the Kirby CMS folder, pointing to the Dropbox 'content' folder. BAM

That way I can mess around with stuff, while keeping my content out of harms way. Also, for creating new content, I use nvALT (using markdown of course) on my Mac, which has a sweet preview panel that you can customize with your own CSS and HTML, so you get a real live preview of your posts with the exact same stylesheets that are on your website.

    With regards the second question about inline CSS… For that specific example of having an image applied to a DIV with cover etc…

    The route that I’ve taken in the past, has been:


    var databg = $(‘div[data-bg]’);
    databg.each(function() {
    var bg = $(this).attr(‘data-bg’);


    div[data-bg] {
    background-size: cover;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;


    Does the job pretty well.
