First Post With Octopress

Yesterday, I set up this blog using the excellent Octopress framework. If you’re not familiar with it, Octopress is an extremely lightweight blogging solution that runs on Jekyll. No databases, cluttered web UIs, or Wordpress PHP. And because it uses Jekyll, hosting your blog on GitHub Pages is a snap.

Write a new post in Markdown:

1
2
rake new_post['First Post with Octopress']
Creating new post: source/_posts/2012-06-02-first-post-with-octopress.markdown

Publish to GitHub:

1
2
rake generate
rake deploy

With a framework like this, I might actually start blogging. We’ll see.
