This is a post which briefly describes why I have moved on from Drupal to managing my static file with the help of pelican.
- Since I'm writing so rarely, it didn't make sense for me to often go through the pain of upgrading Drupal and all it's countless modules.
- I got sick of Drupal's WYSIWYG editor- it's so hard to get it do what I wanted that in the end I was writing content directly in HTML. And human's aren't actually good at that, at least not without the help of a decent text editor.
- I wanted to learn the pros and cons of plain-text writing/formatting. In the end of this year, my goal (not to be confused with New Year's resolutions) is to write my master's work only using free software. I really don't enjoy the stability of OpenOffice/LibreOffice. I don't know what markup exactly will I end up using for this task. De facto markup seems to be LaTeX, especially for scientific publications but it seems too heavy for my needs. Will see.
