You can see the entire website in its own GitHub repository. Any changes to the live site will be pushed to this repository eventually.
I made this website with the Hugo static site generator.
hugo new page.md; and it’s written in markdown
www/directory, and thus other sub-projects cannot be contained here (which is fine, because those have another home anyway)
hugomust be accessible, whereas a traditional CMS would be accessible simply with an online Interface
Despite those downsides, I think Hugo is great for making a portfolio and landing page, and its associated pages.
My favorite title font is the overused League Gothic. Uppercased, text looks handsome and proud, but lean and agile.
Any homepage needs a gimmick and while it pains to me to do so, I adopted Evan You’s fancy background canvas generator. I happen to like the color red right now. The not invented here syndrome kicks in hard nevertheless. Needless to say, I will be tinkering and updating how it works for the foreseeable future because it is fantastic.
Other then that, there is no scripts are present.
Foundation is an alternative to Bootstrap. Both have their quirks. Foundation 6 had a very rocky road until it stabilized in its 6.1.x branch, but it worked eventually and fits the needs of this simple design quite well. Despite that, there are still some framework-styles that need overrides to finish my custom design here.
This entire description could have been a blog post, but it makes sense to keep the materials about this little site together. Thanks for reading.
