New Blog Going Up Today

Publish date: Jun 14, 2015

During some spare train time, I decided to begin transitioning my blog over to Jeykll! Why? My original blog/wiki was build around Dokuwiki. I liked the idea of having the core data in text format, and not in a database that would be tied to a specific version of whatever blogging software I happened to be using. While dokuwiki has served it’s purpose, it’s not primarily a blogging platform, and I worry about the long-term maintenance of the Dokuwiki codebase.

So why Jeykll specifically. A few reasons:

I’m planning to transition everything of importance from my dokuwiki system. Once that transition is complete the dokuwiki site will be removed. There’s a bit of dust still around, but that will be cleared up as more content is moved over.
