Going Ruby

 |  typo, ruby, rails

This site is now Ruby powered. More specifically, Typo powered.

So now I have a Blog. Nearly everybody seems to have one these days, I simply couldn’t longer resist this trend :-)

The more or less static content in the other sections is now kept in text files written using the very readable Markdown syntax . They are rendered to HTML using BlueCloth and a custom Rails controller I integrated into Typo. Nice exercise in the process of learning Ruby On Rails.


You can use Markdown here.
