This weekend I wanted to blog about libgit2sharp but I realized that my setup for blogging wasn't really practical. I used dotclear but by insisting on markdown and refusing the graphical editor it was only an hindrance for me.

In response I investigated the domain of the simple blogging platforms running only locally and generating html files. The one I ended up using is a ruby tool named Jekyll; the one that is used by GitHub for their GitHub pages.

What is nice is that using a web-hook on my blog repository the simple fact of pushing a new markdown file or modifying a sass file will re-generate all my blog with the changes.
