I have migrated the site from Jekyll to Next.js and Tailwind. The new site is hosted on Cloudflare Pages and can be found at https://hackinggate.com.

- The old site is closed source. The new site is open source, can be found at https://github.com/HackingGate/tailwind-nextjs-blog.
- The old site doesn't have a Creative Commons license. The new site has separate license statements for each post and most of them are licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0.
- The old site doesn't track analytics. The new site uses a self-hosting umami instance to collect analytics data.
- The old site uses Disqus for comments. The new site uses giscus for comments. Old comments are not migrated but can be found at https://hackinggate.gitlab.io.
- The old site uses the YYYY/MM/DD date format for URL prefixes. The new site omits dates from the URL prefix since posts may be updated in the future, rendering the inclusion of dates unnecessary.
- The new site uses redirects to keep URLs from old site working, and It's configured at https://github.com/HackingGate/tailwind-nextjs-blog/blob/main/_redirects, supported by Cloudflare Pages.

- I use a self-hosting Umami instance over a Umami instance hosted by Umami as I can have full control over the data.
- I use giscus over Disqus as giscus is eaiser to set up and manage, and is open source.
- I use redirects of Cloudflare Pages to keep URLs from old site working as I don't want to break links as well as for search engine indexing purpose.
- I value privacy and transparency as I'm a privacy advocate.
