Once more, Jekyll
After moving to Wordpress, and then Ghost, both hosted on Digital Ocean, I found myself coming back to Jekyll on GitHub Pages. It’s lightweight, easy to use, and highly customizable. From a productivity standpoint, fewer moving parts means fewer things for me to break and fix.
This time around, I opted to try something different. Instead of using a canned theme, I based my template off of Bootstrap, with some icons from Font Awesome and a theme off of Bootswatch. I’ve got some manual tagging too, which takes a little time to get started with, but won’t be cumbersome since tags won’t grow too much. I’m still working on increasing functionality, but I think I’m pretty set on Jekyll for the foreseeable future.Tags: jekyll blog
