I used to use Octopress, which suited me very well for a while, until I decided that I wanted the following:

  • The ability to post and edit from anywhere
  • To understand how every component of the site works

Jekyll on its own is a much smaller black box that I am more comfortable with, I know what every file in the source repo is for, and I can write and publish for the site using Editorial and Working Copy when I am away from my Mac.
