Software that makes simple Markdown content go.
Installation and Usage
I recommend getting a release from https://git.incorporeal.org/bss/incorporeal-cms/releases and installing the Python package in a virtualenv. Something like the following should suffice:
% cd ~/site % virtualenv --python=python3.8 env-py3.8 % source env-py3.8/bin/activate % pip install -U pip % pip install ~/incorporeal_cms-1.3.0-py3-none-any.whl % pip install -U gunicorn % gunicorn -w 5 -t 60 -b 127.0.0.1:10000 --reload 'incorporealcms:create_app()'
This will get the CMS up and running, and listening on the specified port. The application is
further configured within
env-py3.8/var/incorporealcms-instance/config.py, and content is served

env-py3.8/var/incorporealcms-instance/pages/ and go.

- Symlinks to files are treated as redirects to the destination content.
- Request paths with file suffixes are not rendered and served directly, so images, etc., can be
referenced naturally, and even the unrendered Markdown can be served as a text file via e.g.
Care is taken to not serve content above the
pages/ dir, even via symlink.
I've tried to keep the software agnostic to my personal domains, logos, etc. There are some settings
you are probably interested in tweaking, by specifying new values in
TITLE_SUFFIXis appended to the title of every page, separated from other title content by a dash.
CONTACT_EMAILis referred to in error templates.
FAVICONsupplies the image used in browser tabs and that kind of thing.
