Website Contruction Philosophy
No Non-free JS here
It’s JS’s non-free abilities which I don’t like and is why I am not going to be using it for any of my projects, unless it is a client-side only project where it is running on some local server.
There are of course a few tangent reasons why I decided to fully make the switch from using the Hugo static site generator:
Loading a bunch of JS/php is rather cumbersome at time which can often be tracked down to the js being obfuscatedpoorly, creating a file which is sometimes hundreds of times larger than normal. I’ll show by example - namely using r-markdown and then my own technique to make a page with identical content:
# This is an example header
With a small paragraph
> and a quote
- Dev time/ Convenience
To be completely honest I’m reall not interested by web-development much at all, so finding a flow to make creating content easier is just perfect for me. Also I dont have to deal with running wine/windows or dealing with hundreds of dependencies with Hugo.
Hopefully this explains some of my thought process behind this site’s design, and if you like, check out some of my other stuff that I post here.
