How to update Ghost on Windows Azure

While trying Ghost I found myself in the need of updating the code to keep it up to date with the latest version available on github, and since both getting the updates and the deplyoment to Azure Web Sites is done via git I wrote a small batch file that automates the process. #! /bin/bash echo Pulling from Azure git pull azure master echo Pulling updates from origin git pull origin echo Compiling assets grunt init grunt prod echo Committing to local repository git commit -a -m "Applying changes from origin" echo Pushing to Azure git push azure master A little explanation of what the script does: It pulls from Azure in...

How to install all web development tools needed for Ghost on Mac

As I’ve written last week, I’ve been starting to play around with Ghost and to do so I had to go through an extensive maintenance of my MacBook. But that also gave me the opportunity to revamp it installing the tools needed for a modern web development workstation. In this post I won’t focus that much on the Ghost installation part as it’s well explained on Scott Hanselman post about installing Ghost on Azure, but I’ll focus more on installing the tools needed using the best practices. Tools needed Basically you’d need to install the following tools: Git Node.js Ruby Git Git is a prerequisite for installing most...

Planning on moving blogging platform: Ghost

I’ve been one of the main member of the Subtext project, but lately I’ve been lagging behind keeping a consistent posting blogging schedule, and I’ve also realized that this is partially due to the fact that the blogging platform I’m using is kind of obsolete, not in line with the latest “trends” in blogging and site taxonomies. Since this is a open-source project, actually my open-source project, I could technically tweak the code and add the features I need, but the technology behind the blog engine, despite the effort done in the last few years, is kind of outdated,...

Finally moved my blog to Azure Web Sites

Over the last few years I had to move my blog through different hosting providers, and when in March my last hosting, EpicWin Hosting, closed business with only one month of notice I decided that I had enough of small hosting providers run by people I know, so I decided to finally make the big step and move to Azure. Unfortunately this happened during a moment in which my life is going through some big changes, and I didn’t have time and brain-power to put all my efforts into the migration, so you might have noticed that my blog...

Sergejus is running Oxite on Azure and thinking in .NET

My friend Sergejus Barinovas, developer, community lead, speaker and much more (I think he is also the only MS MVP of Lithuania) has just started a new blogging experience: after running his Lithuanian blog for two years, he decided to start sharing is knowledge, experience and passion for development in English, in his blog called Thinking in .NET. He will mainly talk about web development, Ajax,  data access technologies and best practices. One of the cool thing of his blog is that it runs on Oxite, and it’s hosted on Windows Azure and SQL Azure, and in his...

The first Italian .NET podcast is born

A few days ago DotDotNet, the UserGroup of the Emilia-Romagna, published the first episode of DotCast, the first Italian podcast about .NET. The first episode is about ASP.NET MVC and about a general discussion on Cloud Computing and Azure. And I'm honored to have been the first guest of this show. I hope this doesn't bring bad luck to the show, as the last I've been the first guest at a show (Mindscape's BrainDump), I've also been the only guest. I hope this time, Igor and Alessandro will keep up with the good work, and give to Italians a reason to...

4 podcasts about Azure with Wally

If you want to get started with Azure, you might be interested in listening to the 4 last episodes of ASP.NET Podcast, by Wally.

Then the last episode (#134) is the a wrap up show, with general thought on...
