Also, who here has a personal website and/or uses #IndieWeb ? I'm looking at moving away from #facebook and want to consolidate my data. I'm looking at #grav as a flat site generator, or going the #nodejs route (maybe #ghost?)

@maslow I'm rather happy with Pelican for my blog -

The docs are pretty good. I wish they had more cut&pasteable recipes for dealing with Jinja (what it uses for templating), but I don't think I have any outstanding issues with it.

@maslow yeah, it's good! I had no idea what I was doing with the templates, but it works. Pelican's docs are good. I like that it lets you "make devserver" to look at your site in localhost:8000, and it monitors file changes and regenerates the site appropriately.
