A New Look

August 6, 2014

I confess that this site has been neglected for far too long. Yesterday I thought that it deserved some attention and tried to improve its design a bit. I like clean, hassle-free designs. The previous looks of this site was my attempt at that. It was rushed though. The fonts were not thoroughly chosen, and it didn’t look good on mobile devices. This time around, I decided to get a stronger inspiration from people that know what they’re doing. I first started to look at themes for Jekyll, as it is the generator that is currently powering this site. Eventually I came around at Poole, a sort of helper for Jekyll. Poole currently supports two official themes: Hyde and Lanyon. I like Hyde’s fonts, but not its sidebar, so I adapted its CSS stylesheet to suit my tastes, using what Poole calls the masthead to have the site name and main navigation links. I’m pretty satisfied with the end result, and it is now finally readable on mobile devices. Let’s hope this provides me with extra motivation to push new content more frequently.
