  • Authors do their writing and editorial process on Google Docs
  • When the writing is ready, they copy-paste it to Wordpress and tidy up before publishing
  • Authors use the Grapher admin site to create and manage charts and small datasets
  • A service called the baker generates a snapshot of the site and deploys it
  • Wordpress and the Grapher admin are hosted on a Digital Ocean droplet called live, authenticated by Gsuite login
