Funky caching

Phil Ringnalda writes about funky caching, an idea he picked up at PHPCon, where your weblogging system doesn’t build pages when you save an entry, a la Movable Type; instead, it builds them on the fly when requested, as does b2 and a host of other systems, and then saves the built page to the filesystem so that the next time it’s served, it’s static. This is a stunning idea, and it’s one I’m going to steal for Vellum, which is now really really close to being stable enough to use here. ——-
