History of the project

More than a year back I was introduced to Nikola, a static blog/site generator written in Python. It completely changed my view about blogs. Blogging suddenly became simple again and I started spending more time in writing than thinking about formatting etc.

But I was having problem in maintaining my theme and dependencies between upgrades also increased (which is a good thing in one way as the upstream is adding a lot of features in Nikola).

I started shonku from there with a hope to keep it as simplified Nikola written in golang. It works very fast too.
