A Transition to Static Site Generation

| Comments

Today I’ve launched my new blog. It is based on Octopress and works by statically generating the pages and then syncing them with the server.

If you are for example on OS X Lion and installed XCode 4.2 and you run into weird errors like a missing gcc-4.2, and Homebrew throws errors like this:

Error: The linking step did not complete successfully The formula built, but is not symlinked into /usr/local

Please install the gcc package from this nice fellow: osx-gcc-installer

And if you are getting nagged by rb-fsevent. Change

Gemfile
1
  gem 'rb-fsevent'

to

Gemfile
1
  gem 'rb-fsevent', "0.9.0.pre4"

Update The comments have been exported with the Wordpress plugin to Disqus. I’m currently looking at how to highlight code within Disqus comments.
