Time for a change! Almost 10 years ago I was starting to hack on a Blog engine with two friends, it was called Alinea and it powered this website for a long time. Back then hacking on your own Blog engine was the pre-requirement to host your blog :) But nowadays people just use Wordpress or similar platforms, if they still have a blog at all. Alinea fell into oblivion as I didn’t have time and motivation to maintain it.
Moving to Pelican was quite easy, since I’ve been writing content in ReST on the previous blog I only had to pull data from the database and hacked pelican_import.py a bit :)
