Jekyll31 May 2014
I’ve made the switch to Jekyll for content management.
I’ve found I don’t really need all the overhead of wordpress, especially since I’m finding I don’t update as often as I used to. Jekyll is much simpler and requires almost no maintenance at all. Jekyll parses simple markdown formated files and generates html from templates, that’s about all there is to it. Because the output html is static, pages load much faster. Only a bare minimum webserver is required. The consequence of all this simplicty is that the barrier to entry requires some understanding of coding. If you understand templating concepts and are comfortable with editing markdown and html and have a bit of command line experience it’s well worth the effort.
