Building overhaul

Apart from the switch to a more night friendly site style-sheet I’ve also now switch to a new build system for my not-a-blog. Full script at the bottom. Repo link.

The nice thing about this new script? Way more features, more unixy so it ends up being really straight forward to use, oh and it has a nice name now gensite. The only major dependency it has is pandoc but I’m slowly going to phase that out for another script which accomplishes the same thing so far; it just can’t do tables yet.

Anyway I’ve been messing about with more shell scripting things as I’ve been ded for nearly 3 weeks on account of a really epic eye infection which has left me needing glasses.
