So this is goodbye to Google Blogger and my old blog at Poquito Picante, although I'll try to keep Breaking Bytes up to date if I can figure out how to make a commit hook that posts the generated content using the Blogger API v3.
And this is hello to Pelican! I did a very quick search for static site generators like Pelican, Hyde and a few others, and Pelican quickly emerged as the most popular. Also Kenneth Reitz said to use it.
So far Pelican usage is a snap, just follow the quickstart in their documentation. So this is my very first, albeit very short, post for my new blog site. Why leave Google Blogger?
- I've wanted to for a very long time, b/c I wanted to manage my blog using Git.
- My old blog is now being crawled every few hours which just seems weird.
- I prefer my
breakingbyteshandle to "Poquito Picante" which is just a silly alliteration.
