I got Astro working!

this time you get a screenshot **and** some links

Astro’s great once you get started. A bit funky if you have twenty years of legacy content.

Rather than do my usual — a screenshot and maybe a “lesson learned” post — this time around I made a public repo and live instance of this in-progress experiment available for your entertainment and edification.

Oh and lesson learned: components are fussy, and the errors don’t always happen where you expect. Treat all your imported HTML as XHTML, and look for stray { characters. You might need to convert those to {.

Took me months to figure that out. Hopefully it saves you a few hours of confusion.
