Switching from Ghost to Hexo


My blog used to use Hyde, a python clone of the popular jekyll platform. When Ghost came out, I quickly switched over, due in main part to the great editor and beautiful themes. I used buster to serialize the blog so that I could still serve it as a static site. I had two main regrets, though. 1) using buster to scrape ghost was a hack. 2) My posts were locked in an sqlite db, where git could only do a binary diff.

So I started looking around again for static blog generators, and found Hexo, which looked reasonably capable of doing everything I wanted. I now have my version-controlled markdown posts back and built-in static side generation.

Now I'm working on building an editor interface :)
