Move to Static Website with Hexo

For most of its life, this web has run on Wordpress, but it’s the right time to migrate from Wordpress blog engine to another. My primary reason is maintenance, Wordpress is painful as hell to maintenance like upgrading core, upgrading plugins, and maintaining a database too (especialy spam comments). So, I decided to stop using Wordpress and move to Hexo - a static site generator powered by Node.js. Static site generators are ideal for my web because it’s a fast, simple and flexible.

Why Static Website?

Why Hexo?

Migration to Hexo

I create and use my own theme (plugin too), this way I can learn about Hexo. My own theme support mobile devices by a responsive design. All my Wordpress posts and pages is converted manually! Again, because I can learn in-depth more about Hexo. Since its a static page, I needed to host my comments offsite and I choose the most popular comment system, Disqus.

$ npm install hexo -g

There are a lot of new blogging platform looks very sexy and interesting, but I’m married to Hexo!
