So I was amazed by Medium’s simplicity. But it lacked a couple things that made me more and more hesitant to publish:

  • Lack for nicely-colored code snippets.
  • Where was that stupid keyboard shortcut for transforming text into code again?
  • Markdown. Just.
  • I write my stuff in a Git-powered private repo. Then would need to copy-paste into Medium. Since a lot of what I write is poetry, let me tell you it’s a pain to deal with those pesky line breaks.

So after weeks of contemplation, finally have I found myself some time to start a Jekyll-powered blog. Like we say:

Oh Hallo Jekyll. Tschüssi, Medium.
