Github Pages with Jekyll

This personal website is not very used and even if it was nice to have an AWS server hosting it, it clearly doesn’t require it. So beginning of 2019, I exported all posts from the site and repackage it in a static website, hosted by Github-Pages.

Because I don’t want to code everything myself, I followed github recommendation to use Jekyll, looked for a theme/template I like, and adapted it to add a couple of features and have the desired style (I’m no artist so I keep it simple).

I then retrieved all posts from my wordpress DB, and refactored them as post files for jekyll. In the end, I did it manually (export database, copy-paste and adapt the content into the suitable format). as I don’t have many posts: making a script would have taken much more time.

Here is the result :)
