Blog Redesign

Welcome to my new blog.

I decided to change the site to golang as something different & as a learning experience.
I have kept some of the look of the old site but have changed the typography to make it more readable.

This site uses markdown and has quite a few new improvements over my old node.js backed site.
The main components used in designing the site were SASS with bourbon & custom mixins for fonts, npm for automation of tasks, livereload & coffescript.
It features a grid system with responsive styles.

Features:

  • RSS feed
  • twitter card support
  • opengraph support
  • featured image support
  • code highlighting
  • no tracking javascript
  • disqus commenting

Components Used:

  • gorilla/mux
  • negroni
  • nginx
  • gorilla/feeds
  • highlightjs
  • dracula hljs theme (modified)
  • font-awesome

I have a few projects planned & have also been working on a few hardware projects.
There is a little information on the projects page.
