it has been a while since my last blog post, which happened over 2 years ago..
usually i am not that active blogger, maybe because I wasn't feeling comfortable with the blog engines out there, also lets not forget that most of the times i am a lazy person, especially when it comes to writing posts.
Why I hated blog engines ?
actually I think blog engines ( such as Wordpress, tumblr ..etc ) are great for writing posts for most people, but when it comes to a developer like me sometimes I just don't feel that I have the freedom that I want..
either if I want to share a code snippet with some fancy syntax highlighting, or if I want to provide some live demo, both ways I will end up looking for some plugin to satisfy my needs ... not exactly what I was looking for.
the answer should be much simpler, all I need is to write HTML/CSS & JS code at my convenience, and that was not much to ask.
A better alternative..
Last year I started to hear about somthing called static site generators, I even started to see some great front-end developers shifting their blogs into one of these generators..
getting started with docpad was straight forward, they have some nice set of pre-built skeletons, so I cloned their Bootstrap Skeleton, and got my hands on this nice technology..
it is worth mentioning that this site was not only inspired by Orman's Clark great designs, I actually transofmed his Code Editor App completly into what you see over here.
you can find the source code of this site hosted on Github, go a head make a fork, and have it at your own site, I will be more than happy :)
