Meta (or, about this site)


Built using Eleventy with smol-11ty-starter from Stephanie Eckles. I wanted something lightweight that I could evolve over time.

Hosted for free on Netlify sync’d with a repo on GitHub

(Builds, if you can call them that, take 8 seconds!)

Content is compiled from Markdown files. The home page “recently” feed is populated using an Eleventy collection which includes an external feed from my newsletter site.

I use KaTeX for the occasional equation in posts. This is, by far, the largest dependency but with some smart Nunjucks filtering it’s only loaded in pages that use LaTeX.

Fonts & Icons

I’m getting into fonts and expect to adjust these. For now I’m using YoungSerif and IBM Plex Sans & Mono.

The little icons for posts, notes and books are picked from Tabler Icons and loaded into the page using some smart sprite logic found in Max Böck’s Eleventastic starter kit.
