I’ve just ended a very long relationship that was hideously overdue for some closure. That’s right - I’ve left wordpress.
It’s a great platform if you can’t make a website or just don’t care about the details. But it’s a little less than I was looking for.
So I’ve decided to get minorly techy and build a nice static site to hold all my blog entries. A thousand thanks goes to @dreikanter for writing a simple converter of the wordpress XML format to markdown.
This site is so cool! It’s powered by a heap of great tech:
- Docpad to serve my posts
- CoffeeScript whenever I need to write code
- Twitter Bootstrap for easy styling and reactive handling
- Markdown for easy blog writing
- Eco for cool templating
- Less and Stylus for my css
The only thing I couldn’t take with me - all the old comments. I’ve tried to go back and edit the old entries where the comments where useful.
