OK, this blog is finally written in Seaside; no more chasing the latest Wordpress version. Just makes more sense for a blog mostly about Smalltalk and Seaside to be written in Smalltalk and Seaside. I haven't felt like writing for a long time so I'm hoping this change will make the blog more fun and get me paying attention to it again; she's been neglected for a while.
The code tops in at just under 800 lines so far for the Seaside, database and data migration, rss and atom feed, and google sitemap code. It could have been less if I didn't have to support the atom feed or deal with all the existing links or data from the old Wordpress site without breaking them, but that wasn't an option.
Hopefully, it's not full of bugs, but it supports clean URLs and a nicer threaded Ajax comment system. It'll be interesting to see how managing it compares to managing Wordpress. No more huge library of plugins or community to turn to, just my own simple Smalltalk code with the features I need and only the features I need. Just hope the spam doesn't kill me, guess I'll find out soon enough.
