So my side project Calex is pretty much finished, except for one critical issue - adding a new blog post is not possible while using a custom domain.
To give a quick summary, the idea behind Calex was to easily add and view what activities/tasks were done on any particular day. Using GitHub Pages to host, the main page is one big calendar and has a nice tick for each day that I accomplished a task. Adding a new task for a day was a matter of committing a new post with details of what I had done.
Committing a new blog post is easy if I am on my development machine and have SSH GitHub access but I wanted it to be able to commit from anywhere (e.g from my mobile). Hence, I created a page to commit new posts that formats them nicely with markdown syntax.
I’ve tried many things to get around this, but the simple fact is that I need to either set the domain name to be ‘xxxx.github.com/calex’ (something I am unwilling to do as I will lose this blog domain), or to register the app with GitHub and implement the OAuth protocol.Show comments
