Wrote my own static blog thingy



I have slowly realized that Jekyll isn’t for me. After evaluting a few alternatives like Pelican I decided to write my own, and I have to say that I’m happy with the result.

Not that what I have written is better than Jekyll in any measurable way, but it just that it suits my needs. For example: I use Mustache templates which I strongly prefer over Liquid, and as the Python Markdown library supports metadata and Pygments code formatting out of the box, I find that the original post format is clearer.

The plan is to start blogging more often. Being able to condense something to 140 characters is a valuable trait, but so is writing a whole article on something. I used to do it more frequently, and I have realized that I miss doing it.
