Octopress – a blogging framework for hackers

Being a very happy WordPress user doesn’t stop me from looking around for alternatives.  I recently came across Octopress, which is, in some sort, GitHub pages on steroids.  This is a really neat and geeky approach to tech-savvy bloggers. Recently, version 2.0 has been released.

Octopress comes with:

  • A semantic HTML5 template
  • A Mobile first responsive layout (rotate, or resize your browser and see)
  • Built in 3rd party support for Twitter, Google Plus One, Disqus Comments, Pinboard, Delicious, and Google Analytics
  • An easy deployment strategy using Github pages or Rsync
  • Built in support for POW and Rack servers
  • Easy theming with Compass and Sass
  • A Beautiful Solarized syntax highlighting
