WordPress Editor blocks as web apps in Gatsby

This is a proof of concept web app, completely editable in WordPress using the block editor. I think it’s more fun to do it first. (Please let me know if these don’t work, they’re version 0.1. Saving them will save to your browser only.) Fill in the blanks then click “your poem” to see your …

Manually adding a Let’s Encrypt certificate to my Okta custom domain using certbot locally

Massive caveat: Currently (24 July 2020) Okta does not support automatic Let’s Encrypt certificates and renewals for custom domains. So I’ll have to do this <= 89 days from now again.

Parsing Gutenberg blocks in Gatsby turns out to be much more straightforward than I thought it would be. Not that it’s completely straightforward, but I didn’t find it …

WP blocks, raw data and the auths

I’m at the point now where I want to try parsing the raw content of the posts with the new editor / Gutenberg block data. The endpoints with posts in both the REST API and wp_graphql contain a field with the data needed but that’s only accessible to users with the edit_posts and maybe a …
