Logs for #nikola for 2017-02-08

14:27:15 <chronodekar> when doing 'nikola build' is there anyway to AVOID creating the cache folder?
14:41:31 <[Tritium]> no.  the cache folder is intregal to the build process
16:46:49 <chronodekar> [Tritium]: oh ... alright then. Thanks for telling me
17:03:58 <ChrisWarrick> chronodekar: you can move it, but it’s necessary, and should live in non-volatile memory (i.e. not a ramdisk/tmpfs)
17:18:13 <ToApolytoXaos> question: I have used "nikola new_page" and could see it auto-generated date meta-tag. Is it necessary for a page to include such meta-tag? I have removed the generated date and left it empty and works just fine.
18:19:25 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: not necessary and not really used by Nikola itself
18:20:08 <ToApolytoXaos> ChrisWarrick: okay. so, the date mechanism works for both posts and pages?
18:20:17 <ChrisWarrick> yes, why wouldn’t it?
18:20:45 <ToApolytoXaos> because they are pages..I guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
18:25:22 <ChrisWarrick> they’re the same class
18:27:54 <ToApolytoXaos> so, I guess new_post --page and new_page are the same thing, am I correct?
18:29:15 <ChrisWarrick> yes
18:32:46 <ToApolytoXaos> very nice. is it possible to exclude the date from being generated for pages?
18:33:32 <ChrisWarrick> no, just ignore it
18:37:51 <ToApolytoXaos> no worries +1
18:51:12 <ToApolytoXaos> ChrisWarrick: I can't find any example in handbook to show me how to access globally defined variables from conf.py inside a post or a page. is it even possible or not? I want to access BLOG_MAIL
18:52:14 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: BLOG_EMAIL is not accessible from templates by default
18:52:26 <ChrisWarrick> ToApolytoXaos: you can add it to GLOBAL_CONTEXT in conf.py under any name you want
18:54:02 <ToApolytoXaos> OK, thank you ChrisWarrick
