Some years ago I've been involving myself into learning more about Elixir programing language and I've decided to use more tools in the same ecosystem, starting by my own blog engine.
All of them are categorized as a Static Site Generator. Jekyll and Pelican have a lot more features than Serum, no doubt about it.
I've picked Serum as my blog engine to follow its evolution and I plan to contribute to developing some Plugins for it.
If you want to take a look at some other engines, check this Awesome Static Generators list.
Serum is well-documented and to start a new blog using it is simple:
$ mix archive.install hex serum_new $ mix serum.new /path/to/project $ cd /path/to/project $ mix do deps.get, deps.compile
That is it! Check Getting Started in Serum docs for more details.
I plan to write some blog posts explaining how parsing templates differ in each language and provide some RSS feed URL for future posts :)
