Fresh New Look

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.

The new theme is still quite Bootstrap-y but at least it's one of the themes (Readable) from Bootswatch rather than the default Bootstrap theme.

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.
