This site was build using existing solutions such as Jekyll, Wintersmith, & Metalsmith. When using each of these libraries, I felt the desire to strip away the non-essential code & to have things done my way.
Some features that I found essential include:
- a development server with watch/build scripts
- generate static html files to serve from github.io
With these techs, the following is possible:
- static file builds
- server side rendering
- client side rendering
This means the entire html page can be rendered using svelte on the server (or static file) & svelte on the client side (for dynamic components). This means there's no need for other rendering libraries like pug. Only svelte & raw html strings are needed to gain all of the features of dynamic isomorphic components!
With this retooling, I will begin working on components to enhance the experience of authoring & reading meaning-dense information.
