Post 4 – Migration

Hello

After using Ghost for about a week, I realized that my account was on a 2 week trial, and the blog will not work after that. I began looking for a way to keep it working after the trial ends. I didn’t want to pay for it, so the only way for me was to find a free host that could host Ghost. I experimented with different ways but wasn’t able to host it anywhere for free.
Firstly, I tried Azure, for which I have a DreamSpark subscription. I found out that a better subscription was needed.
Then, I tried some free hosts but none was capable for hosting Ghost.
I tried using Github Pages as well, but that didn’t work as well. Also, I left it midway because using Ghost on Github Pages is cumbersome.

After losing all hopes of hosting Ghost, I decided to use another platform, and here I am on WordPress. This tutorial helped me in migrating.

So, all  my posts are on WordPress now, and I am starting to like this as well.

I was working on a python project, but got busy in migrating. The project is almost complete, just need to add a couple of things. The current issue I am facing is, scraping data off this page at Serebii.
I was successful in scraping data off Pokemon GO Hub  and have scraped data off Serebii in C#, but its not working in python.
Here is the code I am using

page = requests.get("http://www.serebii.net/pokemongo/pokemon.shtml")
tree = html.fromstring(page.content)
node = tree.xpath('html/body/table[2]/tbody/tr[2]/td[2]/font/table[2]/tbody/tr[6]/td[6]/text()')

print(node)

Similar code worked in parsing data from Pokemon GO Hub but its not working for Serebii. I will need to work on this for a couple of days.

I was also planning on making custom commands for Cortana, but that will need to wait for some time. I want to finish the current project first.

I will keep posting about how much I advance, and am beginning to feel I should have started this earlier
