It was time to do a face lift on the blog that pretty much have looked the same for 10 years:



But I wasn’t really fond of the idea of just fixing up the looks – the code for dasBlog hadn’t been touched for several years. Perhaps it was time to change blog engine as well.

It was quite simple, just:

  • Clone the code from GitHub
  • Convert all the old dasBlog posts to MiniBlog format with the MiniBlogFormatter-tool.
  • Create a custom theme based on one of the existing ones.
  • Publish from Visual Studio.
  • …and some DNS fixes, of course.

Bam! Done in less than an hour – I’m impressed how easy it was..

Anyway, during the next play sessions with the Pi I will probably be running it as a:
