Making it again

January 24, 2012 1284.0

This site is being revived, or at least updated again. I’m going to be using Jekyll to manage the site. Jekyll is a static webpage generator that is ‘blog-aware’, meaning it has some features for automatically keeping track of posts and how they relate to each other. While it’s more low-level than Textpattern, I think I’ll feel more comfortable with a more simplified set-up that I fully understand. It’s also written in Ruby, and it won’t be too hard for me to extend if need be.

The switch will also allow me to redesign the site entirely how I’d like it to be, though I may need to put in some effort to get the details right. I’ll see how it goes.
