Tomas Votruba:
9 Steps to Migrate From Jekyll to Statie
Jan 11, 2019 @ 11:22:58

In a new post to his site Tomas Votruba walks you through the process he followed for moving his site [away from the Jekyll static site generator over to Statie], PHP-based static site generator.

Jekyll is great to start for micro websites like gomonorepo.org and <a href="https://gophp71.org/>gophp71.org from Jekyll to Statie. Can new init command make this piece of cake? And what needs to be done next?

He goes through each step of the process (nine of them), providing code and configuration examples along the way:

  • Create Basic Statie Structure
  • Move Source files to /source Directory
  • Move Parameters Files Under parameters > [param name] Sections
  • Upgrade Absolute Links to Moved Files
  • Load Moved YAML Files in statie.yml
  • Remove site.data. and use Variables Directly
  • Setup Github Pages deploy in Travis
  • Clean Metadata from Headers

The final step in the process are the commands to run the project locally and ensure that everything it working as expected before deployment.

Christoph Rumpel:
How I redesigned my blog and moved it from Jekyll to Laravel
Jan 18, 2018 @ 09:38:54

Christoph Rumpel has a post to his site sharing the process he followed in migrating his blog site from Jekyll to Laravel. Jekyll is a Ruby based static site generator rather than a dynamic solution like Laravel provides.

One of my resolutions for 2017 was to redesign my blog. One week before the new year I faced myself with the challenge and thought to myself if this was still doable. Somehow I managed it and here it is. In this article I will explain the process and show you how I redesigned the blog with Tailwind CSS and moved it from Jekyll to Laravel with keeping almost the same performance.

He then walks through the entire process, breaking it down into a few different sections:

  • How to start
  • The backend stack
  • Toughest decisions are the ones about design
  • Tailwind CSS
  • Make it fast

For each of the sections there's code, screenshots and links to other resources included.
