Blog

This is my blog where I talk about web development, discoveries and breakthroughs in science and engineering, movie reviews, and pretty much anything that I find interesting enough to write about.

About

  • My personal blog where I talk about web development, discoveries and breakthroughs in science and engineering, movie reviews, and pretty much anything that I find interesting enough to write about.

Under the Hood

Built using HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, PHP, Laravel, and ButterCMS.

You can take all the files of this site and run them on your computer as if it were live online, only it's just on your machine. This project utilizes the ButterCMS API to retrieve blog posts.

Requirements

First, copy the repository's files from here onto your computer and to view and serve those files locally:

git clone https://github.com/mvrad/blog.git

Open the files in a text editor such as Visual Studio Code and, if you have access to Bash, in the terminal and Composer installed, in a terminal in the project's root directory type:

composer install
composer update

After installing Homestead, configuring the Homestead.yaml file and updating your machine's hosts file, you can now launch the Vagrant VM from within the Homestead directory in the terminal with:

vagrant up

Note: You'll also need to create a config.js file in the public/js directory containing your ButterCMS API key:

const config = {
  KEY : "api_key"
};

Note: You will need an environment (.env) file. You can find an example of this at github.com/laravel. After you create the .env file, enter this command in the terminal:

php artisan key:generate

The APP_KEY in the .env file must match the key generated by this command. If everything went well, you should now be able to visit blog.test in the browser.
