This is a first post made with Pelican. I wanted a blogging platform that:
- Works with Github pages. So, a static-compiled blog.
- Is written in a language I'd feel comfortable hacking on (Golang or Python).
- Mostly just works and doesn't get in the way.
I settled on Pelican. So far, I'm liking it quite a bit. I had to tweak the Makefile a bit to get the make github target to work for a personal Github page. This blog's pelican branch in Github might be helpful if you're trying to get something similar working.
