Christoph Rumpel has a post to his site sharing the process he followed in migrating his blog site from Jekyll to Laravel. Jekyll is a Ruby based static site generator rather than a dynamic solution like Laravel provides.
One of my resolutions for 2017 was to redesign my blog. One week before the new year I faced myself with the challenge and thought to myself if this was still doable. Somehow I managed it and here it is. In this article I will explain the process and show you how I redesigned the blog with Tailwind CSS and moved it from Jekyll to Laravel with keeping almost the same performance.
He then walks through the entire process, breaking it down into a few different sections:
- How to start
- The backend stack
- Toughest decisions are the ones about design
- Tailwind CSS
- Make it fast
For each of the sections there's code, screenshots and links to other resources included.
