Now, with more Jekyll

Drew Miller

We've let our blog languish for a long time now -- while talking about the reasons behind that, one thing that kept coming up is that it didn't seem like it was part of our normal workflow. In an attempt to remedy some of that, we've switched over from Blogger to Jekyll (via Github Pages). Below are a few of the advantages we've found so far:

  • Complete control over the presentation.
  • Familiar (git style) workflow (branch, write, test, merge, push).
  • Dead-simple local testing with jekyll --server.
  • Free, reliable hosting on Github.

So far, the experience has been great. We're actually excited about writing new posts now. And hey, we've posted again so that's good... right?
