This website is the third rewrite of rdmr.eu. Its precursors were two static hand-coded HTML pages and a short-lived WordPress site.

The current version is written with Jekyll, with the code hosted at GitHub. Jekyll is a static site generator, which means that pages are not rendered by a server-side process. This ensures durability and resilience. The website is updated with rsync embedded in a Makefile.

There is a small PHP applet on the server, that works like a URL-shortener.

The CSS is made with Tachyons, a ‘functional’ CSS framework. I was surprised how quickly I could draw up pretty and useful prototypes. For new front-end projects, I try to work with Tachyons.
