Long live flat websites
I recently cancelled my server subscription because I was running into a lot of troubles managing all the applications and processes that were running.
Installing Docker for example didn't work out as expected. It was also a huge struggle to install Ghost, so I decided to move on and do my own thing.
This is the new thing! I am using a new tool called Lektor developed by Armin Ronacher to generate Static websites. Why didn't I use Jekyll? Pelican? Hugo? Whatever?
I don't know, this looked easy and flexible enough to fit my needs and I really don't regret my choice so far.
Apparently it is also easy to add disqus, so that's a good thing because I wouldn't have to handle all the commenting section and stuff.
So that's it, I really love the new design and I hope it will make me post more often.
I guess I will no longer struggle with:
build gulp java foo bar
handle .md files
I just write my content and I MOVE ON.
I tried contributing to lektor and make this editor available but when I saw that there was some REACT.JS involved I decided not to act because I wasn't ready to install thousands of builders and scaffolders just to run some sample code.
Long live Python, it does the job for me and keeps my sanity intact.
