  • PlutoUI.jl

    I realize that, and there may be no rational reason for you to switch to a setup like mine. But, aside from avoiding such things a Wordpress exploits, my approach turned out to have other advantages. Over the years I added to my knowledge and taught myself how to provide things other than static files. Today my readers can use gnuplot in a Jupyter notebook, and interactive Pluto¹ notebooks backed by Julia running on a VPS. No canned solution exists for this, and in fact I had to work with the Pluto developers to iron out some kinks. This is only possible because I have total control over the servers. If you know will only ever want to serve static files, there are simpler options (with potential pitfalls). But those options are also limiting, in case one day you want to do something unusual.
