Got tired of having to deal with Wordpress updates for a blog that I just used two years ago for my participation on Google Summer of Code 2012, so I'm experimenting with my own custom made blog static generator. Bonus: Minus one possible security problem.
Generating the blog is essentially processing some basic text files and outputting some nice HTML pages with one or another link between them, so I had to go with one of my favorite programming language/tool, AWK (or gawk to be more precise). Add a Makefile to the mix and we have a nice out-of-the-box dependency system to only regenerate the needed pages.
For the post formatting I'm not interested in reinventing the wheel, so this just uses the freshly out CommonMark C implementation to generate the post HTML from the original text with markdown annotations.
