Happy new year!

This is the first blog post to test that the blogging system for plated is setup and functioning. It was written on the morning of the first day of 2017.

So far we have cascading chunk system setup and working along with a simple plugin management which contains a blog plugin for doing blog type things. Organising a bunch of posts by time and displaying multiple posts on index pages.

I'm not bothering to break the blog system down even further into a list system, I figure that should just be a separate thing and should be built to deal with needs rather than trying to be ultra generic.

As it is I think we have enough bits working now that this can replace the static site generation in d-portal, which is where this JavaScript code came from originally. Will have to do some tests and see how it all goes.

Right now we are also available on NPM but probably a good idea to wait a little while for things to settle down as everything is still in a state of flux design wise as I try and take the design lessons from the old code and attempt to unify it into something simple.
