Announcing Didact the anti-CMS!

I finally did it! Didact is ready for use, and my own website runs on it now!

This project has been half a year in the making. I've learned so much from it, most importantly Crystal and learning to love SQLite and hate Postgres. The journey led me through contributing to several dependencies, including the Granite ORM, Markd, the SQLite3 bindings, and even creating Sanemark implementing it in a fork of Markd!

I feel so much more accomplsihed than before. I actually wrote a dream project of mine in one of my favorite languages. And I'm incredibly proud of it being just 1600 lines of code! I don't know when Didact will get its first user other than me, but I'm so excited...
