About this site 🏡
This is old, since then I gave up the pain of Gatsby and updated the site to run on 11ty
I've had many different versions of a home page over the years. I've left traces on lots of different social media sites (but only really use Twitter now), kept a food blog[^recipes], posted about generative art on a wordpress blog, even written my own simple static site generator (for no apparent reason).
This is my latest attempt (and I'm sure it'll stick this time, honest...). Hopefully this will be a place for me to share some of the more interesting things I make and do and even if it's not much interest to anyone else, hopefully I'll like it. Keep up to date with the RSS feed.
Gatsby has impressed me with its ease of use and adaptability, it's made making websites fun again.
Making use of these great things #
- MDX - for writing posts
- MDX embed - for embedding tweets and other things
- Leaflet - for displaying big images
- gatsby-plugin-react-leaflet - for working with leaflet
- Littlefoot - for foot note pop overs[^littlefoot]
- TinyDB, pysftp, imageio, and Pillow for managing my stream (now dead)
- Leaflet EdgeBuffer
[^littlefoot]: Getting Littlefoot to work correctly on the Gatsby production build actually requires something a little different to that described in the readme, see this issue.
[^recipes]: I still keep some recipes at https://recipes.justinpinkney.com but these are just for me and that food blog is long dead.
