Nitty Gritty Details
Since you're here, you must be curious about how I built this website. Or you just like clicking tiny, obscure links. Here are some details about how I built this thing:
- I'm using HTML 5 and CSS 3.
- The site is built with responsive practices, because it would be totally rude of me to assume you're on a desktop computer.
- To help support older browsers, I use a PostCSS plugin called Autoprefixer to parse my CSS and add vendor prefixes. I think it's magic.
- Pages are split up into templates with Mustache. It just seems silly to re-type a footer dozens of times if you can easily avoid it.
- I like to use SCSS whenever I can, because it's easy to use and saves me tons of time. I have no diehard feelings between SCSS and LESS. I use SCSS because it works well and does what I need it to do.
- I use SUSY tools to get a head start on responsive grids. I like it because it is lightweight and gives me full control over the look and feel of my site.
- My other favorite CSS tool is Bourbon, but I kept SUSY because that's what I started to build this site with before I knew about Bourbon.
- I used Grunt to compile my SCSS, my templates, and get the site all buttoned up for launch.
- My text editor is Sublime Text 2.
Old and Scary Stuff
Here are past versions of my portfolio site. I like keeping these around because frankly they make me laugh. But in all seriousness, I think it's healthy to keep old versions of your code so you can understand not only how much you've changed, but also to be reminded of how quickly technology changes.
