All Shiny and New

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

I’ve finally found the time and level of frustration with blogger to move my blog to a new platform. Actually, it’s not so much of a platform, but a little script which generates my blog as a list of static pages called Jekyll.

Blogger was nice to begin with, but the edit window was always too small, and having to write you posts in HTML felt so 1990s. Jekyll on the other hand lets you use one of a number of different wiki-style mark-ups, which just feels so much better.

As a little extra, I installed jsMath, which allows me to typeset real LaTeX like this $f(x) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty x^n$.

I just couldn’t migrate all the comments, but given the fact that there was only little amount of discussion anyway, that’s probably not that much of a problem. The old blog can be found again over at blogspot, just in case.
