After countless hours spent breaking things, I think the new site layout is ready (except for the link colors…).A month of breaking things, and here it is! Through the process of moving things around and changing styles, I’ve come to realize that this kind of thing is what I do to relieve stress. That still kind of leaves the question open, though, as to what kind of thing is this kind of thing. Writing code? Learning new things? Tinkering? Who knows.
I’m just glad this things ready to roll (out)!
Shoutouts to the various scripts and packages that made this possible:
Hyde: The static site generator used to generate all of the html. The learning curve seems really steep with Hyde, as there’s really little documentation! I basically generated it’s example layout, then started modifying things. Hyde uses a templating language called Jinja, and a html markup language called Markdown. Jinja basically lets you use python inside of a text template, and Markdown let’s you write HTML prettily.
Here’s to hoping nothing breaks (too seriously)!
