After a day’s hacking, I am pleased that I can update my github.io-based blog using an iPad. Here’s how I did it:
I researched the topic, finding some good info on Avery Vine’s post.
That’s it, there’s no step three. Whenever I want to post to my blog from my iPad, I just edit the sources in Working Copy. Because the blog is backed by a git project, I can also edit the blog from any other device that supports a git client, including a regular Mac or PC.
This works because Jekyll support is built into github.io web pages. Whenever a new commit is made, Github’s servers automatically run the Jekyll app to regenerate my blog.
Pro tip: The Working Copy text editor can be switched from “Programming” mode to “Natural” mode. Natural mode provides spell checking.
