ThaFlyNation is a music blog hosted, created, and managed by web developer and hip hop junkie @montezfrench. Our main goal with this project was to take the existing ThaFlyNation and pull it off of Tubmlr and onto a new platform that we could hopefully harness to be more open and robust. We used MMD-CMS with just a few modifications and custom code to take the site and turn it into something bigger.

An API was written to harvest the Tumblr data as well as all uploaded and attached images for syndication into the new project. All 5,000+ posts were successfully migrated over, with post content, images, categories, attributions, and other meta data brought over as well.

Along with the new platform came a great new design created by Montez himself - the site is currently fully responsive and runs off Bootstrap.
