Don’t be fooled. I still love Drupal.
However, a perfect storm hit me:
- some recent discussions with folks about how the Drupal community can be rather insulated and myopic
- my need for a new blog
- a my desire to use Markdown and some iOS tools
- was curious about static site generators
- vacation time!
So I decided to branch out a bit and just play. What I’ve come up with so far is a combination of Byword, Dropbox, Hazel, Octopress, and rsync with SSH keys. It may be easiest to see the overview first …
*Update 2013-12-25: Of course this is already outdated, as I’ve switched to using Jekyll directly instead of the Octopress wrapper around it. It’s largely the same, though. I’m going to play a bit, come up with some more automations, and then post a followup at some point the future after the dust from my playing settles down.*
