That was quick

So last week I launched an update and fix of this website. Now I needed to update my app blog website too and didn’t think that Gatsby was going to be the solution. So I looked at other static site generators. I found Hexo which is fast and also has … themes. Gatsby is just now experimenting with themes and trying modify an existing Gatsby starter design was not that much fun.

It actually took one afternoon to change my old product blog to the new Hexo site. And the conversion to this site which is also done with Hexo has gone really fast. All I had to do was put the old Markdown files in the _posts folder and build the site. There were a few changes to the config file and the banner graphic. And here it is. Looks a bit like the older blog because it now has the picture of the Carquinez Strait at the top.

So next up I will be looking at Hexo to produce a new landing page for my product site.

One not is that comments may be temporarily mixed up again but they usually don’t take long to update.
