cheap is expensive

The plan was to automate static generation of the site to the point where I just add/edit a post, run a script that builds the site and do an automatic upload.

Later on, building should be via Jenkins or a similar tool. But my cheap hoster gives me no ssh or rsync access and I spent the better part of the evening trying to figure out how to automate the upload of the files. This was rather expensive in terms of time that I could have better spent programming …

But then duck of Cyberduck fame came to the rescue and I am one step closer to automated site generation.
