Blog 2.0

Published on Saturday, March 2, 2019

I think I have more blog post about setting up blogs than I have on anything else, and its been a while since the last one so I thought it about time for another one. I like the concept of static generation for blogs and first incarnations used Octopress, a blogging framework based on Jekyll, but the workflow and content produced wasn’t really working for me so it was time for a change.

I decided to look at Wyam, I knew of a few folks using it and as it using .NET and Razor much of it had a familiar feel I was comfortable with. I’m not going to go into detail on setting it up, their site has comprehensive coverage on getting started, using Github Pages and AppVeyor for deployment. I did start off trying to be smart and automate the markdown conversion but the reality was I didn’t have much so opted for the manual approach. Hopefully I’ll have a couple of useful posts before the next blog post and blogs posts.
