Export your Drupal content to Jekyll using PHP

Just this past week I migrated this blog over to Jekyll from Drupal. I had been using Drupal for the last couple years and I was getting frustrated with how many steps it took to post articles. So I decided to make the switch.

Looking that the sparse Jekyll documentation it appeared that migrating the content was going to be pretty easy. It was once I figured out that wouldn’t be able to get mysql plus to compile on windows. I was finally able to install jekyll on my hosting account and export the content that way.

It seemed like a big hurdle to get all of the ruby gems to work on windows just to export the content. So after I got my blog fully migrated over I decided to write this migration script in php.

I hope this speeds up your migration process. Please feel free to add any tweaks.
