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. For details about my workflow, read this.

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.
