I left the University of Konstanz quite some time ago. Since then, I’m working for the Swiss Federal Railways and part-time as a freelancer. Besides, I decided to go for a .ch-domain and migrate my blog from Wordpress to Jekyll. Why?
- No more plugin/update hell
- No more database upgrade hell
- Just smooth markdown as posts transformed html enriched with simple, easy to adapt CSS
How is the migration working?
Straight forward. First, extract the blog posts, then silver-plate the outcome.
Export and Import
- Export blog posts and wiki entries as xml.
- Import the posts into jekyll
In case of missing gems, install them. In case of something like
occurs, install XCode-Tools and access the license.
Unfortunately, all entries are unsorted and in HTML. Works for Jekyll, but Markdown would be nicer. How to format it?
I found this Website. I know, that this is an rather unscalable way. Since I need only to transform about 20 pages and I want to proof-read them anyhome, I invest the time. A more scable way would be this fine python script (which I didn’t test).
To make the websites better findable by the search machine of your choice, just follow the instruction listed in here .
