This very website! Built using a variety of modern and open source web development tools and resources.Bootstrap
(with the Flatly
Bootswatch theme) and jQuery
are the foundation for the site. This lets the site look great on any sized device, from smart-phones to giant desktop monitors.FontAwesome
provides the nifty social media icons in the Navigation Bar up top.
The site's actual content is in various Jade
templates, which are compiled into HTML.
When updating and/or testing the site, BrowserSync
automatically refreshes any connected browser when file changes are made.Gulp
is my preferred task-runner to edit and build the site: it compiles and copies page templates, copies client-side dependencies, sets up a local BrowserSync
test server and watches for any file changes, and deploys the site to GitHub Pages
