My portfolio (being this website) has gone through a number of revisions over the years. I have experimented with a few content management systems (even rolling my own). I used a number of generators such as nanoc & Gatsby. I wrote everything in React, but published pages manually.
This most recent iteration is entirely hand-coded HTML and CSS. I decided on this approach after becoming frustrated with Gatsby and the complexity it introduced to something so simple. It caused a bit of a paralysis when it came to updating my website. I would need to refresh myself on the tools I was using just to publish an update!
So, with some inspiration from Every Layout, I decided to build my own little portfolio by hand. I am not the boldest designer, so I stuck with simple colors and layouts using the CSS I can write by hand. No compiling or tooling.
Hopefully, this change will push me to write more and update my projects more frequently.
