Why nanoc ousted the rest

Before …

Really unsatisfied with all my tries with Joomla!, Spip and even tumblr, I searched something that would fit my needs by its simplicity, completeness, modularity and power. Here comes nanoc3 !

What wasn’t going so well with Joomla! is that is wasn’t able to build or customize a layout that worked well for what I intended to do. It always felt like it wouldn’t work or fit. As Joomla! is one of the favorite target of hackers and defacers because of its (and its modules also) recurrent discovered weaknesses, it’s always needed to push new versions of the software, without being sure that your server would work after.

Spip and the skeletons where nice … but I don’t need my website to run on php and I wasn’t really fond of this cache thing. And as the community around Spip is quite small, there was no update on the software.

And regarding tumblr, it was nice not having to take care of the updates of any software, but I wasn’t the complete owner of what I wrote, and as this is a blogging purposed website, it wasn’t fulfilling all my writing needs.

… and now

Well, I now do have find satisfaction with using nanoc3 because it builds your website from simple parts, making it very light and portable as it is pure html. Regarding the design, as I don’t have any design skill, I’ve decided to use twitter’s bootstrap as it will provide me simple-to-use bricks to build a website.

Things that I like about nanoc3 are:

And also the simple documentation.
I will try to make this site as simple as possible.
