Octopress Blogging SystemDec 15, 2011 · 1 minute read · Comments
After several years of maintaining a Wordpress blog, I’ve decided to switch to Octopress. Wordpress worked well for me at first but it seemed to have more functionality than I really needed or wanted. The breaking point happened last night when I tried to upgrade it and the templates I was using no longer worked. Digging into the code was going to be more effort than it was worth. So now I’ve moved on to something simpler.
Octopress uses a different approach then Wordpress for generating content. Octopress generates a static site whereas Wordpress needs MySQL and PHP. I like the simplicty of Octopress and it also makes it easy version control everything w/ git.
