Hello, Pelican! (goodbye, WordPress)
When I wrote back to blogging, I couldn’t imagine I’d wrestle so much with a CMS.
A workflow based on static site generators is an interesting alternative. Programmers should feel at home writing in a high-level plain text formatting language, leveraging powerful editors.
I’ve settled on Pelican with Markdown. Pelican is amazing, has good documentation, useful plugins, and is written in Python (a language that a like a lot). Markdown is convenient.
This new setup allows me to work in a more relaxed way, employing a good SCM tool like Git to manage my work. As another bonus, less infrastructure maintenance is needed to keep a secure and stable host.
I took the opportunity to update overall site look and feel. It doesn’t cover up my lack of web designing skills. But at least a more clean structure is in place now.
If you find anything broken, please let me know.
PS: I’m still wondering if comments will ever be enabled :)
