This entire site is built using Jekyll, a static site generator written in Ruby. I have custom templates, CSS, and even several Ruby plugins, and I’m pretty pleased with it. It lets me keep all my content in Markdown, and edit posts in any text editor.
My host is Linode (oh how I love them), and I have a fully iPad-only workflow for blogging and updating the site.
I love these types of posts. We should all be sharing how we do stuff with our own setup. I wrote about my own method of publishing to Jekyll via iOS, and while drastically different to Matt’s method, it’s documented and potentially helpful to many people. If you’re interested in going #iPadOnly, I definitely recommend Matt’s series on the topic.
