Random pieces of wisdom about technology

Hello from sinatra and blogxter

This is my personal blog, which is powered by several new and exiting technologies for me. Heroku, Sinatra, HAML and RDiscount (markdown).

I decided to call this engine blogxter. It relies purely on the filesystem, which makes blogging very easy task. I just fire up a Textmate and create a new file. The posts are written in markdown. I decided to use it because it is very understandable. In the future I am thinking about trying with AsciiDoc.

The site is hosted on Heroku and runs with sinatra. I use HAML for defining the layout and soon I will switch to Sass, when the styles start to get complex.

This is for now. I will soon post the code of the engine on github. Stay connected.
