I’ve migrated ariejan.net from a custom Ruby on Rails application to a statically generated site with Nanoc.
Publishing my site now goes like this:
Write stuff in Markdown Commit and push Watch how jenkins builds and publishes the site with nanoc and rsync. Using nanoc Nanoc is a very powerful static site generator. You can use ruby to create helpers, filters and what not. Fancy using Sass, Compass and Haml?
