Who Even Writes This Stuff?


I'm a software engineer and a data/statistics lover.

Purpose

Shameless self-promotion.

Site Architecture


If you like the site, feel free to steal the code for it on Github.

  • lektor - Static file CMS. Great authoring UI for new content, easily understood modeling & templating system, excellent documentation.
  • python - Data visualizations, Lektor plugins, etc. The glue between pretty much everything else here.
  • bulma - CSS-only flexbox-based web framework. Makes layout very simple.
  • scss - For custom styling and for customizing bulma.
  • webpack - Processing scss, minifying files, etc. Hooks into Lektor for simple builds.
  • aws - S3 for hosting, EC2 for compute requirements, and more for random ad-hoc works.
  • gitlab ci - For building & deploying to S3.

If you're wondering why I made any of the choices that I did, I've got a post on that subject here.

My dog Howie and myself.
