This post is specially written for the celebration of completing 200+ followers on dev.to .
I started blogging about technologies, nature and Science at a young age of 13 , at 2014 I started a Blogger blog called AlphaPedia , it had barely 1000 monthly unique visitors and 5 to 10 daily visitors. That time I knew nothing about blogging , so after few weeks I got bored and started mainly focusing on Programming so I Left Blogging!
But Again, In 2018 , Palash Bauri returned , enriched with knowledge and skills. . . I started a new blog Adventure Of Palash and It is a kind of success to me.
Now It has more than 7000 unique visitors and increasing.
I'm thinking of writing an article how to start with no money and create & maintain a good looking blog.
I mainly use open source technologies to run and maintain my blog, today I'll share with you guys what tools I use for blogging.
So Let's Start!
If you're from open source community, you might have heard the name of platform GitHub
Yes you guessed right I use GitHub Pages to host my blog.
As usual a version control is definitely needed to use GitHub and Push Changes.
Being easy to use and default on GitHub , I Use Git ,
Jekyll is the preferred static site generator for GitHub Pages , so as usual I use Jekyll to build my site with help of Travis-CI (I had to use Travis-CI because due to security reasons GitHub doesn't support some plugins)
When writing articles on computer i use Remarkable to write.
It's easy to use and fast!
Open Source Markdown editor for Android which I'm currently using to write this article.
I use to so much , to write todos , keep notes of some ideas and much more
Markor is a great tool!
When I'm on mobile and want to publish a new article or make some changes I usually use MrHyde , an Android app for maintaining Jekyll Blogs.
That's a very useful app which even has an editor to make some instant changes.
But bad news is , it's not maintained by Developers anymore. 😟
Due to GDPR , MrHyde might not be available on Play Store in your country, so you can download it from here https://m.apkpure.com/mrhyde/org.faudroids.mrhyde
They are awesome tools.
These are the tools which I use for my blog. You can try them, I hope you'll like it.
