New Blog Engine
July 17, 2016
I’m landing today a new version of my blog. For long I’ve being growing tired of managing a full stack, API first, blog. Now I’m using Jekyll with this theme. What impressed me most about Jekyll is how easy it is to setup, by my estimations it took a single evening to migrate everything.
Now with a static application is much easier to develop and deploy. In short, all I have to do is to write a markdown file and deploy it via a simple makefile using rsync to send it to my Digital Ocean droplet. Take a look at the makefile:
all: build serve build: clear jekyll build serve: jekyll serve clear: rm -rf _build deploy: build rsync -a _build/ root@$(BLOG_IP):/var/www/html
With the ease of creating new posts I hope to ship them more often. For more details you can check my blog repository.
