About this website

I have come to like static website generators, because they allow me to follow a workflow more similar to developing software, and the generated pages render extremely fast. I write my content in Markdown.

Since December 2017, this entire website is generated using Hexo, and is hosted on GitHub Pages.

Until December 2017, I generated it using Frog.

Before that, it used to run as an instance of Node.js with MongoDB, and was powered by Express, a Web framework for Node.js, Jade, a Node template engine to generate the HTML, and Stylus, a CSS preprocessor.

Gergelim is the Portuguese word for Sesame.
