http://robert.arles.us Migrated to Pelican Static Site Generator
Yesterday I updated robert.arles.us from wordpress to Pelican static site generation. I made the change partly as a learning process and partly to move away from an unnecessarily heavy CMS hosting app. Was it a surprise to me that the migration made my site fast? No. Was it a surprise how much faster? Oh, yes. This screenshot of the chart that PageLoadStats created for me shows the performance stats in Milliseconds. Besides the performance boost, I’ve gotten a chance to work with .htaccess rewrites and redirection, rsync for publishing, dealing a bit with Jinja templates, and I still need to finish up adapting the current them to handle small screens well.
