For months now I have been hanging out in #osu-lug on Freenode as a part of my effort to advocate for Ubuntu and Free Open Source Software at the local state-level and I become aware of the Open Source project named “wok” which is licensed under the MIT License and actively developed by the always amazing Mike Cooper (mythmon).
Why would anyone wan’t to use static html that’s so Geocities isn’t it?
Well not really in fact if anything it is secure, efficient and can handle traffic better than say PHP which is more resource intensive and even with optimization is still going to consume more resources and often be vulnerable to exploit.
Why I’m not using the wok?
Don’t let me be the excuse for you not trying out the amazing power of wok. I being a busy person and having a rather large amount of blog posts am holding off on migrating to wok although a number of pretty cool people and organizations are already using wok to power their own blogs.
Why you should use wok or at the very least check it out?
If you are the type of person who has difficulty keeping a CMS platform up to date or needs something that sets you apart from the crowd while also allowing you to harness the speed of static html and the peace of mind of knowing an insecure CMS platform is not going to result in an embarrassing exploit then wok is the choice for you but notably wok is not for the faint-hearted and you should have a basic grasp on using terminal and know your way around HTML and YAML
Now that you are all excited about wok you should go check out the wok project site here and perhaps join #wok on Freenode if you have questions.
