This site is built with Eleventy, a fantastic static site generator. I pre-compile my Sass files to CSS, and minify my scripts. I then inline that to reduce HTTP requests, and this whole thing is hosted via Netlify. Also used: PurgeCSS, ImageOptim, GlyphHanger, SVGOMG…
The theme picker is more than a little inspired by Max Böck's own, and the synth on the About page is based on Bret Cameron's tutorial, and extended with envelope shaping and lowpass filtering by peeking at Daniel Schulz's code.
You can check out the full source code on GitHub to see plugins and other packages used. I only ask that you don't steal my code and slap your own name on it.
- 2019 16" MacBook Pro (Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM and 500 GB SSD)
A good computer with a real Escape key, after all these years with a fake touchscreen one.
- Dell U2518D Monitor
A big screen for big code.
- Autonomous AI ErgoChair 2 (disclaimer: contains a referral ID, gives you a discount)
I think they recently renamed this to be ErgoChair Pro but it's a good chair.
- Fully's Remi Standing Desk
I sit a lot, so having a desk that easily goes from sitting to standing is really helpful.
- ErGear Dual Monitor Arms
Frees up some space on my desk with easily adjusted positions, good stuff.
- Sony MDR-XB50AP in-ear headphones
Simple, reliable earbuds for "casual" audio listening, and useful for video meetings.
- Sony MDR-XB950N1 over-ear headphones
Quality earphones for more "focused" listening, with noise-cancelling.
- Mozilla Firefox
I've been using Firefox since version 3 or something, and it's never disappointed me — love the CSS DevTools!
- Visual Studio Code
Love how powerful and customisable this editor is! I notably use these extensions:
- Adobe Illustrator
I love working with vectors! I optimise my work with SVGOMG and then manually tweak them to be just right.
A little git GUI that helps me avoid making big mistakes.
Beautiful tool to compress images better, you won't regret it.
Thanks for stopping by, friend, it is mighty kind of you! 👋
