This Site Runs on Nikola

I have changed the site from Jekyll to Nikola. Mainly because I am mostly a Python coder nowadays and because the Jekyll version I was using it was kind of hacky and full of patches I created. So let's see if I finally get to write more often. I have been thinking on becoming an Iron Blogger but it might be too much. If I start blogging more using this setup I will definitively consider it.

I really dig that Nikola offers good support of org-mode format (which I use to store my notes and other personal information). Actually, this post was written using org-mode from Emacs. It also has good support of blogging with Jupyter Notebooks, which I use a lot also at work. It also comes with capabilities for importing from systems like Wordpress or Jekyll. I do have to change Disqus URLs to match the new format.

The rest of the post it is going to be me trying stuff and some features of Nikola and org-mode Emacs.

for x in range(1, 10):
print list(range(0, 9))
def func(x):
    print("Hola mundo")
    if x > 0:

With org-babel I can run the code inside get the output. I find that pretty-neat when blogging and showing code snippets.

Short codes need to be surrounded by by

It took me a while to get used to Nikola style and properly configure it. I should have written the steps down but I forgot. However, there are plenty of resources.
