Hi DN'ers! I'm designing my new portfolio on HTML5 & CSS3 and I'm looking for the best way to include a basic or minimal blog platform to write a little bit. Any recommendations?
Hi Dave. A fellow Dave here.
I'm doing the exact same thing at the moment. I wanted a basic site with a blog.
I was originally going to go with Wordpress given that I'm a Front-end + Wordpress dev full-time: but I wanted to "hand roll" something rather than rely on a CMS so I went with Jekyll.
I'm really enjoying it. The Liquid templating language is really straight forward and you can use HTML and Markdown.
Jekyll + Grunt is a very, very powerful combination by the way!
Hope this helps.
Thanks so much! I don't want to use WP too, I will take a look at jekyll :)
Jekyll is the best!
