From Statamic to Getkirby

The design of this website has changed as you might have noticed, but what's under the hood as well. I've used statamic for the past 2 - 3 years and it has served me well, but I find it has become a bit like wordpress, a very complicated content management system.

So I have decided to try getkirby again and what do you know, it was the right fit for me. And things just got better when they released the third version, witch I'm not sure I will be using, I mean this version is just rock solid and suits me well.

Getkirby is simple, fast and pretty straight forward to use and to develop for. And if or when you get into a jam just search google and the answer you shall find ! This is by the way what drove me away from statamic, not the support that is great but the lack of demonstration of what people do with statamic. It feels like the getkirby community is way more share friendly. Anyway this is probably a biased article but hey ! just letting you know ...

Until next time.

Relaunch

I have decided to relaunch this website to the public. It was always out there on the web but I didn't post much and spent way more time redesigning than actually writting.

This time I'm going another way about it. I purchased a template that is actually what you are seeing in your browser, so no more designing and redesigning, pay one small ( very small ) fee and it's done. More time for actual blog posts.

And I must admit this template / theme call it whatever you like is gorgeous, so simple it just makes you want to write, just to see your post take shape. The simplicity at it's best. I have added some small personal touches to the way it displays photos mostly, but other than that keept it very much how it was originally designed. This is a first for me !

On the writting / backend site I went back to getkirby mostly because this design was made using getkirby cms, but also because of the price of the license,  getkirby is really cheap in comparison to  statamic and although the templating language of statamic is way better and straighforward in my opinion, I find that with time, it got more and more complicated, whereas Getkirby just stayed the same.

So the design and the cms are a perfect fit for each other. You can expect more posts / articles in the future. And also way more photography articles as I have become an amateur photographer. See ya around...

Revue du MacBook 12"

Ayant longtemps rêvé du parfait compromis entre le macbook pro et le macbook air, J'ai tout de même pris le temps de la reflexion avant de succomber au macbook 12, mais le voici enfin en ma pocession.
Après avoir lu maintes revues plutôt négative sur celui-ci, notemment sur la lenteur de la machine (que l'on compare à un macbook air 11" de 2011) ainsi que son nouveau clavier, deux des défauts qui reviennent le plus dans beaucoup de revues anglaises, j'ai quand meme pris le décision d'en acheter un il y a 1 semaine.
Je dois avouer que j'ai été surpris pas la légèrete de la machine et sa compacité ! Fin, léger élégant et surtout magnifique en version gris sideral.

L'ecran

Il est juste magnifique avec un bord quasi inexistant. l'impression d'une totale immersion. Une qualité qui n'a rien à envier au Macbook Pro Retina et dépasse largement les Macbook Air, impossible de revenir en arrière.

Le Clavier

En ce qui concerne le clavier, c'est la partie de cette machine que je préfère ! voila c'est dit, je le trouve parfait, large, agréable au toucher, très réactif. le rétroéclairage et bien plus agréable que sur un Macbook Pro et la typographie des touches bien plus rafiné à mon avis.
Le seul défaut du clavier, est la disposition des flèches il faut un certain temps d'adaptation de il n'est pas rare de devoir regarder le clavier afin de déterminer les touches.

Résumé

De tout les macbook que j'ai pu posseder, celui-ci est de loin le plus beau et agréable à utiliser.
J'utilise cette machine pour faire la programmation de ma box Crossfit ainsi que pour blogger et faire quelques designs sur Photoshop, et de temps en temps regarder netflix ou quelques films. Il tourne à merveille. Pas de ralentissement à noter mais je ne travaille pas avec toutes ces applications en même temps.
