As from yesterday this site is now powered by Jekyll instead of Drupal. Everything is (just as my old Drupal site) available on GitHub. We switched from Drupal to Jekyll at Kollegorna about a month ago as well and we’re not looking back.
Jekyll really is a blessing to work with and suits me as a developer extremely well. It’s easy to get started so I definitely think you should take a look at it if you haven’t done that before.
- Some people prefer to host it at GitHub but I’m using a VPS from CloudNet as I need to use things like 301 redirects for old blog posts.
- CSS is preprocessed with SASS and Compass.
- The grid is provided by Zurb Foundation.
- Icons are delivered by Fontello.
- Headings are set in Futura PT and body text in Anonymous Pro served by Typekit.
- CSS and JS is compressed by Jammit using the Jekyll Jammit plugin.
- Comments on blog posts are enabled by Disqus.
- Other open source libraries used are Modernizr, normalize.css and the MBP helper.
- A sitemap is generated by the Sitemap generator plugin.
- I use a simple Fabric script for deployment.
