I Has a Website!!!
Hi 👋, I'm Rafe. I'm a Ruby developer and I live in Vermont and I do Vermont things coax plants out of the ground 4 months of the year, haul firewood inside the other 8, and complain about slow internet service year round. I started this blog to help me think through stuff. Thanks for reading my whiteboard!
I also built it as an excuse to play around with this shiny static site generator Bridgetown. It's a modernized Jekyll with built-in webpack support, and it's been a joy to use so far. Run
yarn add bootstrap 🥾 and I've got a grid. Then
bridgetown configure purgecss and my website fits on a floppy disk again 💾! I'm still not completely settled on where the Creative Commons license should go but I should probably just get to writing. Render.com is the new hotness for devops-free hosting (and they're free for static sites, w00t!). Push directly to Github and suddenly, boom! 💥 I have a website.
