Website migration. Some years ago, WordPress started changing its format to their GUI editor, which I hated. And then I discovered that WordPress claimed to store Markdown (plain text) files, but actually they were absolutely not even remotely plain Markdown.
Because of these issues, I didn’t want to add to an already large blog problem by making it bigger. So I stopped blogging altogether.
While I’ve recently converted this site to Jekyll (a static site generator written in Ruby), I plan to move this site again to Publish (a static site generator in Swift) once I’ve tweaked the site to be what I want.
Why not go directly to Publish? Because there are extensions I need to write, and I need to convert the theme, and that’ll take time.
This migration, so far, consists of the posts and pages, which are not yet organized. I will get there. As far as comments, I still have them exported, but will need to do the CSS and hand migration, which means I’m going to migrate some comments, but not all of them.
I plan to re-add all the substantive comments I’ve gotten, which will take me a while.
