Blogging like a hacker

By on

This is the very first post.

Ever since reading “Blogging Like a Hacker” long ago, I’ve been wanting to own a similar site. No worries on database things. Writing articles in plain text feels me good.

I also considered nanoc, since it sounds so powerful. But I chose to learn the simpler Jekyll first.

After setting up this site, I found the existence of Octopress, a helpful framework based on Jekyll. It features a semantic HTML5 template, Disqus Comments support, beautiful syntax highlightings, and many more. Using it would surely make the building process easier. I wish I could know this earlier, but I also learned a lot through building the site from scratch.

There’s still a lot more to do, but right now I’d like to call it a day.
