A Shopping Cart Made for Static Sites

I’ve been building a shopping cart made for static websites. What I’ve come up with so far is a embedabble JavaScript shopping cart that works with Stripe Checkout v3 and is only 37kb in size. So, essentially, you can add a shopping cart to your static website with the following code: <div data-cart-host="sullycart"> <script type="text/props"> { "stripeKey": "<YOUR_STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY>", "successUrl": "<YOUR_SUCCESS_URL>", "cancelUrl": "<YOUR_CANCEL_URL>", "buttonColor": "<HEX_CODE_FOR_YOUR_BRAND_COLOR>" } </script> </div> <script src="https://js.stripe.com/v3/"></script> <script async src="https://cart. »

Scraping data to generate markdown files and populate a statically generated site with content

In this post, I’m going to show you how I efficiently added 300+ web pages of content to one of my clients website by creating a script that will scrape the web and generate markdown files from that data.

Launching migly.co

I’m launching migly.co today! So, the one thing I hate about Instagram is the fact that you can only have 1 link in your profile and you can’t add links in your post descriptions.

Open Projects

New beginnings For 2019, I’m going to be more open about the projects I’m working on. For a year or two now, I’ve built multiple side projects, but I haven’t really talked about them. It’s time to change that. I love building side projects, but I really suck at marketing them once they are available for use. I think some of that can be remedied by openly talking about my projects as I build them. »

A New Way to Start a Bootstrapped Startup

I was scrolling through my Twitter feed the other day and ran across a tweet about a new accelerator for bootstrapped companies. I've been noodling on this for months, and today I'm excited to announce a remote startup accelerator for bootstrappers: https://t.co/mKtnrwvPuE More background here: https://t.co/WIhrhsYlnv — Rob Walling (@robwalling) October 12, 2018 I’m not sure what the business model looks like for the accelerator, but their website mentions a few details. »
