Content migration with jekyll-import gem

23 May 2013

I migrated posts from my very old Wordpress blog to try out Jekyll migration process using jekyll-import gem as suggested in Jekyll migrations manual.

Things went pretty smooth except for the dependencies management of the importer. Because there is a lot of importers in the same gems, all dependencies are not mandatory and you have to install each of them manually to use your importer (ex. sequel & mysql gems for the Wordpress importer).

I opened an issue and got an answer pretty quick by the maintainer. A dicussion about suggested solutions is already going on, which is great!

In the meantime, enjoy reading my PHP and XHTML papers (your know, CakePHP was pretty cool back then).
