06:55:34 <capri> morning - is it possible to create a "gallery" within a nikola post?
07:37:27 <KwBot> [nikola] orsenthil opened issue #2304: Align option for youtube directive https://github.com/getnikola/nikola/issues/2304
09:43:12 <ChrisWarrick> capri: gallery_directive plugin
09:59:46 <gour_> morning
10:00:17 <gour> it looks as Hugo is getting its CMS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMhXh3ezZ04 (although, afaict, done in rails)
10:04:08 <gour> lektor is also getting quite popular...
10:04:34 <gour> ChrisWarrick: can one use rst within Coil?
12:46:04 <gour> this one shows great advantage of nikola (atm): https://github.com/lektor/lektor/issues/180
13:44:22 <ChrisWarrick> gour: if you don't mind no WYSIWYG, sure
13:46:12 <ChrisWarrick> gour: surprise, Lektor is garbage
13:46:32 <ChrisWarrick> Ronacher is overrated
13:54:48 <gour> ChrisWarrick: what do you mean with 'no WYSIWYG? ?
14:02:09 <ElPasmo> WYSIWYG stands for What You See Is What You Get gour
14:03:26 <ElPasmo> It's used for those editors that let you see in real time the final appearance of what you're editing
14:05:59 <gour> i know the acronym, didn't get meaning in the context, just wondered if one can use rst in amdin, no need for wysiwyg editor 
14:13:17 <gour> ChrisWarrick: now i got your 'phrase' :-)
14:24:56 <ChrisWarrick> I think Coil might need extra convincing to create rest posts as of now
14:34:07 <ElPasmo> Ok, sorry gour :)
14:38:34 * gour --> afk. bbl
18:55:24 <gour> ChrisWarrick: i've to try to do full-install of Coil...for other people. ability to use 'admin' to create md posts might be good enough, while still allowing me to use rst myself and writing offline
18:55:42 <ChrisWarrick> coil does .html by default
18:58:48 <gour> C
18:59:15 <gour> so, one has to write post in md which is converted into html or directly in html?
19:06:01 <ChrisWarrick> in HTML
19:06:07 <ChrisWarrick> (using a friendly WYSIWYG editor)
19:06:37 <gour> what is the quality of such generated code?
19:07:35 <gour> another option which some of my friends would use is writing in Word, saving ad .docx and then pasting. how about that?
19:09:08 <gour> *saving as .docx..
19:10:12 <ChrisWarrick> Word produces crappy HTML
19:10:27 <ChrisWarrick> our editor is generally better, but I guess we could swap out the editor
19:12:46 <gour> i've found there are some md plugins for Word. how about having (like e.g. lektor) some md-aware editor? too difficult?
19:16:03 <ChrisWarrick> Patches welcome.
19:16:08 <ChrisWarrick> We had one in the past, it was meh
19:17:47 <gour> i see...
19:18:00 <ChrisWarrick> Note that you can always modify Coil to suit your needs
19:19:23 <gour> sure. still it would be nice to see it generally enhanced...just see how many stars lektor got in relatively short period of time...or Grav...it looks there is demand for such apps
19:20:37 <ChrisWarrick> Well then, please find someone who has time and will to contribute to it.
19:21:21 <ChrisWarrick> Because I have a massive to-do list with 27 entries on it, and only 8 are done. The deadline is the last week of April.  And then there are tons of other projects.
19:22:31 <gour> i understand, although i was a little bit disappointed not getting even the single reply to my psot about flat-file-cms
19:23:30 <ChrisWarrick> I guess most Nikola users are hackers who don’t need pretty web applications.
19:24:27 <gour> it seems so, although with more polished web ui, it could get much more users considering its overall stability, list of features  etc.
19:25:39 <ChrisWarrick> sadly, setting up Coil is painful
19:25:52 * gour nods
19:27:03 <gour> grav is great in that regard...of course, it requires php
19:27:21 <ChrisWarrick> (which also requires a bit of setup)
19:31:02 <gour> php is usually coming out-of-the-box at even the cheapest hosting
