From Google Docs to Jekyll

I just want to share my current workflow in case this might help some others.

I have figured out how to publish my site regardless of computer I use allowing me to write my posts in Google Docs and then publish this site with Jekyll.

The first step obviously is to write your post in Google Docs. Heck you might even want to add an image or two like this one:

When done writing I use the Gabriel add-on to publish my post to Github. If I were hosting my site on Github Pages, then I would be done. But because I use firebase to host my site, I have to open my terminal and do a “git pull” to get my post locally on my computer.

After the git pull I run a jekyll build command to create my site with the updated post and then deploy my site to firebase hosting and then after a few seconds my site is live.
