Why I Switched to Jekyll23 Dec 2017 1 min read jekyll
Previously I was pretty much happy with my website which was created using PHP. Mainly, my website included the information about me and my work. But, eventually PHP did not stand upto me as it had previously. Problems included slower loading time and complex code blocks.
Later on I came to know about Jekyll. Its impressive loading speeds, ease of use left me no option but to try it! This website that you are currently viewing is entirely built using Jekyll.
