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.
The Hexo static blogging engine gets an admin UI
I recently switched from ghost to hexo, and the biggest thing missing for me was the editor interface. So I made one. Currently, it's mostly a clone of the Ghost interface, but I have some ideas for making it even more awesome.
