Excellent point, and I'm sorry for assuming Make was available ubiquitously. How did you deploy your Pelican app? I was struggling with getting it launched on Netlify, and the makefile really helped.

What I did with my site was use Netlify's GitHub integration to automatically build any time I push to my repo. Then, under the "Build & deploy" settings for the site, I use the pelican content build command and point the publish directory to output.

There are several steps to setting up Netlify, so I might write a follow-up post on this at some point but setting the build command and publish directory is the main part of getting it to work.
