Couldn’t resist the temptation. Octopress templates looked so groovy. I decided to take the dive and 2 hours later, now I am typing this post on my emacs. I still have to migrate my other posts on to this blog. I will do that over this week.
You have to do a ruby, gems, octopress gem installation. But once the initial installation is done, you can do all your posting on markdown. I use emacs for all my coding and editing and hence being able to type in markdown is a great advantage for me.
