Over the last few weeks, I’ve been migrating several Rails applications to Hatchbox. I’ve still got a couple of applications to go. Still, one last thing I wanted to do was migrate my blog over to DigitalOcean’s Apps platform.

I’ve been using Render to host my blog for the last few months. While it’s free, and I have been okay with using it, I’ve wanted to minimize my digital footprint of the services I use. Over the weekend, I spent almost eight hours trying to get my blog to compile and run on DigitalOcean.

Sadly, my blog wouldn’t compile due to the Tailwind integration I am using. An error with the Jekyll PostCSS gem kept breaking the building of the website. I’m still digging into the actual issue, but it is getting parked until I have more time to look into it.
