I decided to create my own custom site-generator for a couple of reasons:
- My site is so simple, a lot of existing generators make designing it and building it overly complex.
- The simple generators that already exist don’t really organize things the way I want
- From a user perspective, a shell script doesn’t require any special considerations, except for maybe the version of core utilities and other command-line programs required
- I thought it’d be nice to learn a little more about bash and some linux core utils
Sorry to anyone that subscribes to this site via rss/atom… the guids and file paths have all changed, so your readers are probably going to think all my content is new!
If you’d like to checkout how this site was made, you can look at the ef.sh repository on github.
