This is now a Jekyll blog

Revisions:

I moved my blog to Jekyll as I was getting tired of maintaining my homemade, over-engineered blog program with a Node backend and mongodb database. It simply wasn’t easy enough to create new posts, and creating new features was getting increasingly dulling.

It has become apparent how important it is to have simple workflows for small tasks. Creating a blog post should not have to be anything more than writing the content and pressing Post.

I just wanted to open vim, write some markdown and publish that post with a single command. Jekyll was perfect match for this

  1. Write markdown
  2. Preview bundle exec jekyll serve --limit_posts=5
  3. Commit git commit -am 'New post'
  4. Push git push

And that’s it (assuming my server is auto-pulling, which it is)!
