Moving to Middleman

Monday, 12 January 2015

A while back I moved from WordPress to Jekyll. Overall Jekyll was a lot better than constantly fighting with WordPress, but I missed many of the niceties of developing in Rails.

That's when I discovered Middleman. Middleman has many of the great features of Rails development baked in to a static site generator.

It was very easy to migrate everything from Jekyll to Middleman. Overall, I'm liking it much better so far. There's also great support for deploying with Heroku which was something that was lacking when I first got up and running with Jekyll.
