Welcome to the second version of my blog, powered by Gatsby, an incredible static site generator.
Inspired by Daring Fireball, some detail will be provided for the technologies, applications, and techniques that power this site.
The site is hosted on MediaTemple.
Articles are written using Markdown, and are translated to HTML using remark.
The following gatsby plugins are each used as the backbone for much of the functionality present in this blog:
As much as possible, this site attempts to abide by current web standards with a baseline threshold targeting around or about IE 10. That means that my heavy usage of Flexbox (CSS) will not quite be rendered perfectly in every circumstance, but in general, the goal is to be progressively enhanced so that the site is still readable and usable in a browser that doesn’t have great support for Flexbox.
The incredible CSS library
styled-components is used for the majority of the components rendered by the blog, particularly those not parsed via Markdown.
Georgia, serif will be used until the webfonts have been loaded.
