Recent updates on my site

- written by Zeeslag

So it has been a couple weeks since the last update. There have been a few changes, some you might have noticed already but I will list them all here.

First of all, I have been continuing to use Eleventy as the main driver for making this website. It is a great tool and I am very happy with it. I have also been interested in Slinkety but I have not used it yet and don't know if it will be useful for me. I have been managing without needing any special enhancements so far.

The new frontpage! This has been the greatest improvement since the last update. I have been working on it for a while now and I am very happy with the result. Mostly because it aligned with my drawing. I am not 100% sure if I am keeping the flashy buttons or not, It does not look very good on older browsers. But it is something I will try to improve in the future.

And the new blog! I have added a few new posts and I made a custom CSS for it. I wanted it to be minimal and simple but still have a nice personality. I added some green and stuff.

Sadly I have not had the time to look into getting real blog comments. I don't want to use Disqus because it is a bit bloated. I might go for Utterances but I'm not sure if everyone is fond of the microsoft github. Giscus is very similar but features nested comments so I would go for that. If you have any other recommendations, feel free to contact me.

I am working on theming all other individual pages. I currently use Sakura and it has been a great blessing. But I want something similar for myself. So this will come soon.

Anyways, that is all for now. Enjoy your day!
