  • Parsedown

    Better Markdown Parser in PHP

    Project mention: Markdown library that supports disabling many features? | | 2021-08-22

    Yeah, I ended up finding during my research. It's an acceptable option, but I was hoping I missed something even better. Thank you!

  • Grav

    Modern, Crazy Fast, Ridiculously Easy and Amazingly Powerful Flat-File CMS powered by PHP, Markdown, Twig, and Symfony

    Project mention: I moved this blog from Medium | | 2022-01-23

    Congratulations. A big win for Internet decentralization! (It's not sarcasm, I'm all for having your own space on the Internet).

    I invite you to try Grav CMS[0], it's what I use for my personal blog[1].

    Grav is a flat-file CMS, it doesn't use RDBMS. It's highly perfomant. I also have CloudFlare in front of it, but it was already faster than your typical WordPress you see elsewhere.

    Grav also adheres to the latest PHP version, so you don't have to carry along legacy syntax around like other CMSes. Its error pages are comprenhensive and the stack traces are actually readable.

    I personally think it's the best out there technically speaking, the best of both worlds (Flat-file and at the same time, dynamic instead of compiling the build every new post), the only drawback is that its plugin ecosystem it's still in the early stages, so if you're to create marketing landing pages or similar, you'll still fall short there.
