Small Improvements to the Blog
After switching (think) to Minimal Mistakes I’ve been doing some small improvements to the site’s structure and content. I thought it might be a good idea to summarize them here:
- I’ve updated the About page. It now includes a lot more information about me and (think)’s background and mission.
- I’ve moved the contact information from the About page to a dedicated page.
- I’ve added a simple
lunr-powered search. I should have done this a while ago, but Minimal Mistakes made this so easy that I finally had no excuse not to do it. It’s not as fancy as Algolia-powered search, but it mostly gets the job done.
- I’ve replaced the old custom Archive and Tags pages, with the versions of those pages provided by Minimal Mistakes. Now they look much better as a result.
- I’ve added dedicated Atom feeds for the main topics I’ve historically written about:
- I’ve added a table of contents to many of my longer articles (here’s an example
- I’ve been going over some of my old articles and I’ve fixed tags, broken links, typos, grammar and markup here and there.
I have to say that this has been a very fun process and Minimal Mistakes has been an absolute joy to use so far! Next step - finally learn how to use Jekyll’s collections and add something else besides articles to the site.
