From Wordpress to Ghost
More and more, developers seem to be switching to static page CMS's like Jekyll/Octopress, Pelican, and ghost.
I am no exception.
After some research, Ghost became my new choice due to it's sleek interface and overall simplicity.
Ghost runs on Node.js, but Github Pages, from where my blog is being served, does not support node. This did not deter me. My workaround utilizes a tool called Buster (clever title), which generates the static content locally. I then copy the content to the
blog folder in my website repo, and it's all set!
The drawback is that is that I have to add all my content locally before it's set loose to the outside world, but I'm used to that anyway.
I am also enjoying using Mardown instead of HTML. Very sleek indeed.
