About this site

The site is authored as Markdown files which I edit in VS Code for Mac. All the pages are generated using the static site generator Hugo, hosted on Github and deployed to the world using the excellent Netlify platform.

Other features include:

  • The use of CSS Grid Layout throughout the site.
  • The use of the Walbaum typeface designed by Charles Nix, Carl Crossgrove, and Juan Villanueva.
  • Implementation of sitewide hyphenation as detailed excellently here by Richard Rutter.
  • Conversion of the site into a Progressive Web App.
