New computer calls for installation of tools and projects. I remembered installing Jekyll, was a not so easy task when using Windows. So i decided it was time to look for alternatives.
I knew there was all kinds of new generators out there, i was looking at multiple at once and decided to go with one. I used this website www.staticgen.com.
My choice became Hexo.io.
Particular reason for my choice other than it was based on NodeJs, which i like to work with, and did not require me to install Gems.
I started the migration process of moving all my posts (3 posts wow haha), and my theme. Particular the theme was the part which required some work.
Luckily for me, Hexo and Jekyll looks very much alike in so many aspects. Templating, structure and usage is very much alike.
I ended up doing some redesigning and optimisations to the theme which needed some care. I might release the theme to Hexo theme catalog for everyone to use.
Features i need to implement is the comments section, and i think i still will use Staticman.net. This might require me to build from scratch a plugin for Hexo.
All-in-all i am happy with the change. I might change to something else in the future though. But for the time being, Hexo works great.
So lastly i want to say goodbye Jekyll, you have served me great, and hello Hexo, hope you do the same. :)
