Harp Weekly – The Week’s Workflow

This week, an entire workflow has been documented: upgrade from Jekyll to Harp with a new npm module, learn about some of Harp’s features in a podcast, and deploy your app with a new guide.



Eric Drechsel has done a great job creating an npm module to help you upgrade from Jekyll to Harp. It safely moves YAML metadata into _data.json, among other things. If you’d like to contribute or find out more, the view the GitHub repo for jekyll2harp.


This November 14th and 15th is CascadiaJS, a conference on the cutting edge of JavaScript. CascadiaJS’ site is built with Harp, and is published on the Harp Platform. This year, the event is taking place in Vancouver, BC. Sintaxi, the author of Harp, will be there—make sure to say “Hello” if you’re attending!
