Hey All. As the post topic says , I am now shifting my blog from blogger to Github.
I have been blogging since college days. I first blogged on http://iam-khush.blogspot.in on 4th December, 2010. I like sharing technical difficulties I faced during my projects, or any other new things that I would be using them in future.
Reasons to shift to Github
I have been thinking to do this from a long time. Ever since I first blogged , I have tried to make my blog look clean and impressive. Blogger themes are limited in number and are very Web 1.0. I dont see any new themes coming up, so I decided to use a new free theme from StartBootstrap, and give github a try.
I will slowly shifting all my posts here from blogger. I will either write a script to read the xml and create posts automatically or will select articles and copt them here one by one.
Conventions to follow here
Since this is a github blog, lot of automation that comes with Blogger or any Blogging engine will be lacking here.So I will follow some conventions to keep the work clean and as smooth as possible.
- There is an index page which will lists the posts. So on making a new posts, an entry here is needed.
- For adding a new post, use a base template - base.posts.html.
- The posts name would be - dd-mm-yyyy-title.html and kept in the posts dir.
- Images are to be kept in a single dir called img. This helps to reuse images if needed.
