Jekyll is written in Ruby and is the magic tool behind all GitHub pages. It allows to write our posts in simple markdown like we already did in wordpress with a plugin but now offline and with the power of your personal favored text editor (like Sublime Text). Jekyll takes the posts, a set of templates, styles and configuration options and generates a complete set of static files that are deployed on our server. This also speeds up the page as nginx simply serves static (and partially also pre-gziped) files now.
Additional the new blog system allows us to extend our already broad range of topics with new articles about Jekyll as well as our own additions, plugins and deployment methods. Expect some articles soon.
Feel free to leave a comment and enjoy the new blog.
