A Brief Programming Note

I haven’t posted for a while, because I am re-working the backend of this site. I went with conventional wisdom for writers chose a fuss-free writing/publishing solution. The problem is that I like fuss.

I also don’t like the WP editor, Markdown parser, URL structure, and other assorted miscellany. I want to be able to write in any text editor, version control with Git, style, and extend the site at will. I want to own this whole thing. I want to occasionally break things, because I am a no-nothing programming dilettante. It’s fun for me. It’s also how I’ll learn.

Anyway, my day job has been busy, I’ve been traveling, and again, I’m a no-nothing programming dilettante. Thus, delay.

Please bear with me.

  1. I’ve been quite happy with my system: https://github.com/nickwynja/whiskey

    I recently updated it to use pandoc for the parser so you can use filters (but I haven’t pushed this to the public fork yet). If you want some more info on it and don’t _want_ to roll your own, shoot me an email.
