1 title: New Website Backend 2 author: Daniel Moch 3 copyright: 2018, Daniel Moch 4 date: 2018-10-14 15:42:53 UTC-04:00 5 category: technology 6 description: I've moved from a Django site to a static one powered by Nikola 7 8 For those interested, I've converted this website over from a 9 [Django](https://djangoproject.com) backend to 10 [Nikola](https://getnikola.com). Since there aren't any interactive 11 features on this site, it's clear that an engine such a Django was 12 overkill and that Nikola's static generator was a better option. So 13 far, so good. I especially appreciate being able to choose a 14 templating engine (I went with [Jinja](http://jinja.pocoo.org), since 15 it was most like Django's templating engine). 16 17 If you notice anything weird or broken with the site, please hit me up 18 on one of the social media links on the landing page. 19 20 Cheers!
