Hexo Framework Test Drive

I've been playing around with several static blog/site generators lately. Not that I'm unhappy with Octopress - I think Octopress is great - but I was looking for a javascript-based generator to simplify the development stack and maintenance of this blog. Since I will be using JavaScript in many blog posts, why not use it in the back-end as well? Another excuse to use NodeJS!

After a few hours of trial and error, I settled on the Hexo project. So far it's been a joy to work with. I was able to migrate the entire site in one weekend. Check it out:

However, I will probably spend a few more hours tinkering around before I make the final switch.
