Simple Org Blog

This project is meant to be a quick-and-dirty blog based on org-mode formatted documents.


This project requires Python 3.

1. Install tornado

  pip3 install tornado

2. Install pandoc

How to install Pandoc.

For Ubuntu:

  sudo apt install pandoc

This will be used to convert .org files into .html.

3. Generate SSL keys

  openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout certificates/server_jupyter_based.crt.key -out certificates/server_jupyter_based.crt.pem

4. Run the server

python3 simple-org-blog.py

5. Trust the certificate

Open your browser and visit localhost:8888.

Your web browser should complain that the website's owner cannot be verified. This is a security measure for SSL related to the certificate. Because we made the certificate ourselves, the browser doesn't know whether to trust the certificate, because there is no signing authority.

You can safely click Advanced and add the certificate as trustworthy, because you've signed the certificate and trust yourself :).

If you want to get rid of this, you'll need to get a signing authority like LetsEncrypt to generate your certificate.
