I am moving my website to a new design, relying on Pelican and more modern CSS.
So far, I had been using rest2web to generate the static part of the website, and a local install of wordpress for the blog. I wasn’t doing good on keeping the wordpress install up to date, and I eventually got hacked. It was hurting my desire of simplicity to need a dynamic website. The combination of Pelican for my content, and Disqus suits very well my need, as it enables me to have a simpler website, and still have blog posts and discussions.
I also took the opportunity to clean up the website, remove some old content, and move my travel pictures to flickr.
One interesting aspect of redoing my website with a more modern content managment system was that I could lay out the information based on tags and categories, rather than the old way of having a tree of nested topics. This is much more flexible because one article is likely to fall in many topics. Modern information organization is moving away from the notion of path used to access to an entry, to the notion of set of properties (tags here).
A result of using more modern CSS is that the website should look good on any screen size, from very large screens to mobile phones.
