Well, I have, successfully switched over from Tumblr; to a self hosted Jekyll based setup. It’s not complete or perfect, but it’s working and looks good!
It’s feels more free? Free, in terms of, being able add/change the functionality very easily, and it feels more extensible because of Ruby and Jekyll. Liquid has been simply awesome to use, it’s straight forward & extremely simple.
The site is hosted with Digital Ocean. I was hosting with Hostgator, but yesterday, I decided to go ahead and start using Digital Ocean. There’s a reason behind this decision, and I will cover that in another post.
It took me about 2 days to finish this small project. Time well spent.
Let me know what you guys think?
