Or: Making my blog go fast!
As you might have noticed I relaunched my blog two weeks ago. I wanted to run something that's a lot more lightweight than TYPO3 (I'm still a fan of TYPO3, but in the meantime I learned to pick to right tool for the right job...) and wanted to bring the fun back into writing blog posts by writing them using Markdown on my computer instead of dealing with an RTE. I explored a couple of static file CMS and Grav met all my requirements: It's PHP, it's free, it's truly open source, it's actively developed, it's easy to learn, easy to customize, easy to extend! Plus the developers are super responsive. Get in touch via gitter.im/getgrav/grav
