New website!16 Jul 2017
Welcome to my new website! This week I converted my old Wordpress-powered site to a new static site generated from Markdown via Jekyll. After using Jekyll successfully for another project it seemed like a good fit for my personal site. There are a few advantages of this new process:
- I no longer have to worry about Wordpress/PHP security vulnerabilities and upgrades.
- The site loads a bit faster.
- Since a static site doesn’t require any server-side scripting I have more hosting flexibility.
- The layout and style are easier for me to edit since they’re just a few template files written in Markdown / Liquid.
The current theme is Hyde with a some customizations. I’m working on a few more improvements to add category/tag support and comments in the near future.
