2020.10 Start migrating to Gitee + Hugo
Finally I started migrating my personal blog
gitee.com, away from
Bitcron, which I’m afraid is probably no longer a great choice for blog hosting, after writing 107 posts there for 6 years (2014-2020).
More freedom, less stucking
I have already experimented with
hugo for a while and have created a new blog on
gitee.com this week, and will migrate all stuff from Bitcron in the near future.
There are several reasons behind the decision:
gitee.comis pretty much faster than
hugois much more customizable than an automatic engine
- git-based-repository holds revision history intrinsically, and probably preserves more reliability and integrity than Dropbox file syncing
No More ‘504 Gateway Time-out’
The last thing kicked me away from Bitcron/Farbox is, intermittent 504, which is said “to be fixed when there is a fix”.
This is terrible.
I’m afraid Haipo no longer has much enthusiasm in this project. Though I’m willing to pay a bit more than I did for a stable service, it probably doesn’t yield enough revenue to keep it self worth maintaining any more.
The migration period
- There might be a few months ahead to complete the migration process.
- I will post on both sides before everything is settled here.
