I am getting back to blogging after a long time. My last blog was wordpress based, which was too bloated for my taste. So, this time I am going with a static generated blog. There are a billion static site generators out there. I am going with Pelican, as it is in Python, which I am more familiar with than the other languages. Also, it has excellent documentation.
So far, I have found it to be pretty easy to set up and use. This blog is hosted on the cheapest Digital Ocean droplet using nginx webserver. I am new to system admin, and so far it has been a good learning experience.
Pelican is easy to theme, it uses jinja2 templates. I have created my own pelican theme for this blog, check it out :)
