Although it's late March and London hasn't quite shown what spring should look like I thought it would be good to do some spring "cleaning" of my website. That means saying goodbye to my homebuilt combination of PHP and Markdown and saying hello to Nikola, a static site generator written in Python.
As Nikola supports Markdown it was fairly easy to convert my old website to this new setup. I can now focus on writing the content and generate the whole website with a single command. Some new features are the posts archive and the ability to tag posts.
I have configured the
.htaccess file of the website so old links should
still work. If you have come across a link that doesn't work anymore please let me
know on Twitter.
