A few years ago I setup my personal site based on Wordpress and was quite happy with that. But after some time I wasn't sure anymore if this is really what I want:
- First of all I had to take care about updates every few weeks and had always a bad feeling about potential security issues.
- Also the Content I added couldn't easy be converted in other Formats neither the Source Code shared without Plugins.
I started looking around and liked the approach to use a static site generator and focus on pure HTML as well CSS.
After some research and testing i decided to go with Pelican, it's Python based and can be extended by Plugins.
So I started to:
- Creating a own Theme
- Contribute to update and migrate old Plugins I like to use
- Migrate content, split across various locations, to reStructuredText
Not finished yet, but as you can see, there were already some progress :)
I plan to publish my Theme shortly as well invest more time in Contributing to the Pelican Project.
