Migrated From Posterous to Octopress

| Comments

I’ve migrated the blog from Posterous to Octopress. Posterous was alright, but syntax highlighting was a bit annoying, and gist embedding is ugly. Plus I just wanted a little bit more control. At the same time I didn’t want the various security and management headaches that basically every dynamic CMS brings with it.

I used the alternative posterous importer provided by Jekyll–their default one doesn’t preserve the permalinks. Before running it you should fix a bug: s/post\.media[2]/ Then you can run it with ruby posterous.rb USERNAME PASSWORD API_TOKEN. Presto!
