How did I build this site?

This site was built with Jekyll, a simple and fast static site generator

Whats that?

Jekyll is a static site generator written in ruby. It generates static html pages. The page is presented through several templates and then fires the whole site, were articles are written in a text markup language like Markdown through the liquid converters to generate fully generated compiled website

Why?

Quick development times

Jekyll sites are written with HTML, CSS, Javascript and Liquid the exact same languages I am used to from working with shopify themes. This makes it quick and easy for me to make a site with.

Quick loading times

A static site generator takes source files and generates an entirely static website. This means there is no waiting time for a server to render html, which makes it very fast.

If you are a developer and haven’t checked out static site generators I would highly reccomend it they are great!
