Why? Because I spend a lot of my time using Python, in my work with both CPD for Teachers and FireTech Camp, and working with the Raspberry Pi, so it made sense to you use python to generate this site rather than ruby.
The transition was relatively painless. I just installed Pelican on my laptop, copied the files that made up the content to a new folder, edited the frontmatter to match what Pelican expects, and generated the output. Then it was a case of pushing the generated files to my webserver. Job done!
Now to see if I can actually get around to blogging more regularly.
