Drupal Sucks

I haven't written anything in a long while, so you'd think I'd be neutral about Drupal, right?

No. I don't like this platform at all. I kept this website on Drupal because it would be a good resume-filler. I value the experience I've gained from wrestling with it, but goddamnit, I am sick of updating Drupal and taking care of it.

No auto-update for security vulnerabilities. Clumsy module system. Unintuitive taxonomy system. All around clunky.

 

Stay tuned, I'm moving this site to something more lightweight. I'm considering Ghost or Jekyll at the moment. Wordpress as a last resort.

 

I'm trying to think about what technology is likely to be around in 20 years. Probably not Drupal, Ghost, Jekyll, or even Wordpress. If I really wanted to do this right, I'd just save each post as an HTML file, and do things the old fashioned way, with actual directories and files.

 

But that sounds like a lot of effort for now. Have I mentioned Ghost has a beautiful interface?
