A blog in Clojure20 Jul 2012
I decided to write a blog in Clojure - my reasons:
- It is alot more motivating working on something “real” - and I need practice to learn
- Make markdown syntax for blog posts a first class citizen. This is is a tough fight with Wordpress (was? - haven’t poked at for some time now). Though wysiwyg (html) is just as important… now I just have to figure out a way to make both work well in parallel :D
- Instead of just storing posts in the database and generating pages dynamic on request, I want the blog to generate static html pages whenever a post is created or updated. The same with comments.
I have put my code on Github and I’ll share my design ideas as it progresses.
