When I start my first personal blog I am totally unaware about how to create a blog and how to keep up it. But internet and Google is always your best friend for making anything in an Awesome way. I use Blogspot first, it’s a simple and easy platform but i want something extra so decide to use WordPress. WordPress is world largest platform for hosting your blog or you install it on your server, but it also include a many feature which is not needed in my blog so I think to switch to new blogging engine which is Octopress. But using it I realize its generation speed is very slow. Now my hunt is on for faster and Octopress like generation software i found a New And Better alternative of Octopress Which is called Hexo.
Why I Switch My Blog From Octopress to Hexo
Octopress is very good platform and its tagline is attracting me to start my blog using Octopress.
A blogging framework for hackers.
It’s very user-friendly but when you are generating a web site its takes too much time, I have only 24 articles but it takes 2-3 minutes for generating the entire website. so I decide to switch my blog to any other blogging software which is similar to Octopress and my main criteria for choosing any blogging software is a speed of generation. After a lot of googling I found a Hexo which is similar to Octopress but its takes only 2-3 second which is very fast as compared to Octopress. When switching any platform for website its takes a lot of headache and hard work for converting website or blog from one software markup to another, but in my case nothing to change in my article and code simply copy previous articles markdown files to Hexo directory. Running generation command and my blog works again.
Thanks Hexo for saving my time…..
Now I use WordPress, World Most Loved Blogging Platform.
