Not even an hour of ‘work’ and I’m already delighted to be working with Octopress! I’m in love with the automatic support for Markdown, the built in plugins for Disqus and Twitter. Those are the just the front-facing sprinkles though!
Octopress seems wonderfully prepared to be auto-deployed using some simple Git-Hooks. Currently I’m just editting the live version of the site, don’t kill me, but once I get the site more settled to my tastes I will publish my setup for hooking git commits. I will likely base my git workflow of this as it seemed simple enough for this blog - I’d rather not over-complicate something that shouldn’t be complex at all!
Lastly I was hoping to create a script for migrating old posts from WordPress to a set of posts that would work for Octpress. First I’d do the basic grab and insert to files, then I will look into allowing options for having default share or comment properties. Will you guys let me know if you’re interested? Or even if this already exists!
Well I already cut into some sleeping time to tinker with this, so I will continue my tinkering and tweaking another time. Check back for updates on migration scripts and hook scripts!
