New Site πŸŽ‰

Posted on 29 Nov 2013 by Sam Hewitt

Having read about how static sites are way more lightweight and the codebase can be quite minimalistic, they sounded right up my alley.

So, I basically rewrote the entire site in static HTML, using Jekyll, and I ditched the very bloated Wordpress as a my blogging backendβ€”all of which I have to say was a learning experience, but it only took me a few days to get the hang of.

Another benefit of becoming static, is that I can host my site on an Amazon S3 bucket (which also conveniently has a Ruby gem which I can use to deploy to S3 immediately).

I’ll have to now work on the responsive design aspects and try out some of these trendy CSS preprocessors, like SASS.


I'm no fan of comments sections, but do feel free to contact me.
