My new projects blog platform

My new blog software is ready! It's a static site generator based on pandoc, using a reactive 'blocks' concept.

Why write a new platform?

Mostly because I wanted to have a very speedy and very simply maintainable platform. I hope to expand functionality as I go, some plans are: integrated WebGL support, GitHub integration, ePub and PDF output, etc.

The platform

The site is basically a shell script markdown processor with inotify support, using SSI to allow simple updating. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but quite useable already.

The layout

The layout concept is inspired by modern CSS templates like gridiculous and bootstrap . I've called it reBlocks and when I get to it I'll put a template on GitHub.
