Hello folks. I wanted to let you know about a new development re: fastpages. As you know, we have rebuilt nbdev from the ground up on top of Quarto, a fantastic technical content platform including excellent facilities for blogging.
I know many people use fastpages in the community. I created fastpages because, at the time, there weren’t any good options for blogging with notebooks. Recently, there have been some new pieces of technology like Jupyter Book and Quarto which are both fabulous. We ended up using Quarto for nbdev, because of its shared vision with nbdev and the fantastic ongoing support from JJ Allaire and the rest of the Posit team. More discussion on this topic can be found in this blog post.
Even though I created fastpages, I believe that people trying to blog with notebooks should be using Quarto. I am a believer in recommending the best tools for the job and helping people use those tools where possible. To that end, I have created this migration guide that can help you migrate your fastpages projects to Quarto, along with other Quarto resources that might be helpful.
One of the most central aspects of fastai is writing blog posts and sharing your learnings, as it is an unreasonably effective way to experience career and personal growth. I hope that you all will continue blogging using the wonderful tools Quarto provides. If anything, I believe that Quarto will encourage richer forms of technical communication as it is a rich platform that is capable of so many things even beyond blogging. Thank you
