Yay! I at last have a new website. Something that looks decently clean, loads quickly and works on mobile.
I used Jekyll which is a static site generator. The content of all the pages are in markdown (with some html thrown in) and they’re processed into HTML and CSS based off of my html layout and sass files. It’s was a little bit of a learning curve to understand and wrangle with the default templates Jekyll creates for you. But the end result is clean, fast and easy to edit.
It’s taken me some time to learn that the hard-work, brute force approach isn’t the most effective. It’s just something I’ve become so much more aware of recently as I reflect on my college experience so far.
If you want, you can check out the old site below. I’ll miss it but I’m also glad to say good riddance.
