New Nikola Tutorial

Tim van der Lin­den has writ­ten a im­pres­sive tu­to­ri­al about how he used Niko­la to cre­ate his new site shisaa.jp

It doc­u­ments the whole process from scratch, start­ing by down­load­ing Niko­la up to build­ing your own theme.

Even if you are al­ready us­ing Niko­la you may find some new stuff there, so take a read (al­so, his theme is so pret­ty :-)

Math Works Now

Do­cu­tils has sup­port­ed math ren­der­ing for a while now. That means Niko­la should have sup­port­ed it for a while too, but nev­er did cor­rect­ly be­cause ... well, be­cause noone ev­er tried, may­be?

Well, it does now, be­cause Dami­an Avi­la has fixed it!

Nikola 5.3 released

I am hap­py to an­nounce the re­lease of ver­sion 5.3 of Niko­la a stat­ic blog/site gen­er­a­tor. It in­cludes some mi­nor fea­tures and a good amount of bug­fix­ing. Up­grad­ing to it should not cause you any trou­ble, as far as I know.

Here's the changel­og:

  • Op­­tion­al­­ly use con­­tent dis­­tri­bu­­tion net­­works for jquery and twit­ter-­­boot­s­trap (USE_CDN op­­tion)

  • New Brazil­ian por­­tuguese tran­s­la­­tion.

Bugfixes

  • Make SLUG_­­TAG_­­PATH a con­­fig dep for most pages

  • Re­­moved meta ti­­tle tag for bet­ter HTML val­i­­da­­tion

  • Re­­moved #999 back­­­ground from foot­note back­­link.

Blaze of Glory

Review:

Meh. The starts tooltip says 2 means "it was ok", but re­al­ly, this was meh. Not 1-s­tar "did­n't like it", but ...

Must con­fess I did not read the Hol­ly­wood stuff at the end. Maybe that's good, I ust did­n't both­er.

A Latent Dark

Review:

It starts a bit messy, and some parts seem rushed, but not bad.
