Nobody builds their blog with MkDocs. What's wrong with you
Tired of social media buttons and fancy animations that come at the cost of computer juice, I quit. So here you are, in a static-site blog generated with MkDocs (a documentation engine written in Python, like Sphinx). I call this "Blogumentation".
Here is a list of tools that I ruled out:
- ssg6 — A static site generator written in shell. Extremely simple yet versatile. Sadly, it'll take forever for me to settle on a template or CSS, and, given so much privilege, I will most probably break everything.
- A self-hosted pastebin. The links would be a mess, albeit short.
- HTML+CSS from scratch. Same as ssg6.
- Sphinx. It graduated with a
.rstdegree, but who uses rsts these days.
- Hugo. I didn't want a Go environment on my machine. (Update: Joke's on me, I installed go later and wrote a bit of it. But still no.)
- Hexo, Jekyll, etc: I didn't want a Node.js/Ruby environment. Keep them away.
You will not find any of these in my blogposts, as long as I am in control:
