Simplicity of This Web Site
- No JS, no tracking, no custom fonts
- No external CSS
- Minimal styling
- This page weighs just 3K
The largest part of the CSS is the styling of the navigation bar. I could have went with a line of text links separeted by spaces, but I wanted to have a clearly visible navigation at the top. Using such a small amount of CSS also removed the need for any CSS preprocessors like Sass.
- Lightweight markdown (smu)
- Minimal templating
- No dynamic content, just static files
- Use existing Unix tools (sh, sed, optionally entr)
- Current page is not highlighted
Suggestions on how to add these in the most simple way are welcome!
