Scheduling Post Publication with a Static Website (Using Bitbucket, Netlify and GCP)

By Jimmy Bonney | September 7, 2021

As I mentioned in different articles and in the About page, this website is being built using a static site generator, namely nanoc. Every time I push changes to the code repo – be it configuration changes, new or updated articles, etc –, a new build is triggered on Netlify and the new version of the site is deployed. This is all well and good, except that on some occasions, it would be nice to be able to schedule new articles to come up on the site on a specific day, without having to manually push the content only then. In the last few days, I spent some time to see how this could be done and this post will look into the solution that I put in place using Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
