    1. I'm just going to offer a short post today as I develop some aspects of gRSShopper. In particular, I now have the gRSShopper MOOC environment up and running in a Docker environment - all the instructions are here if you want a copy for yourself, plus there's a video showing how to do it.

      These may be useful to come back to to check out at some point.

This is actually one of the reasons people like WordPress.
