  • also we use the custom-domains plugin-in heroku.

special thanks to @homerosousa for help me out with this transition XD

Start Blogging With Octopress

| Comments

i’ve been hearing a lot of Octopress so i decided to give it a shot, i like the idea behind this blogging framework, baked HTML pages instead of a PHP/MySQL, writing post in markdown format and many more so don’t be surprised if the next time you visit this site has an Octopress look and feel.

What it’s Octopress

Octopress is a framework designed by Brandon Mathis for Jekyll, the blog aware static site generator powering Github Pages. To start blogging with Jekyll, you have to write your own HTML templates, CSS, Javascripts and set up your configuration. But with Octopress All of that is already taken care of. Simply clone or fork Octopress, install dependencies and the theme, and you’re set.
