Dear Aunt TUAW: How do I post a website on Dropbox?

Dear Aunt TUAW,

I read Uncle Steve's write-up about posting an iWeb site to a Dropbox folder.

It's a great blog post and neat trick! But it's using the Public folder... Is there a way to use a non-public folder to do the same?

Your loving nephew,

Seb

Dear Seb,

Auntie is fond of Kissr.co, not just because of its name, of course, but because it makes setting up a website on Dropbox super easy.

Just register for a name, and use Uncle Steve's save-from-iWeb secret techniques, and boom, you'll have a full website running from your Dropbox in no-time. If you want a custom domain, Kissr offers those for a small charge.

If you're more interested in wikis than blogs, take a look at WikiPack. It's a markdown-powered Wiki service that also serves from Dropbox. (And Uncle Brett consulted on the project!)

Auntie has tried both services (albeit, just poking around, no serious testing) and both seem to offer practical, portable, usable solutions.

Hugs,

Auntie T.
