Starting to create this site
I got the idea of creating blog when I have listened the webbidevaus.fi-podcast and how blogs are dying because of social media. And after I happened to see the great tutorial by Cassidy Williams on the Twitter, I was ready to start.
What have been used to build this site?
If you are not familiar with that tutorial or do not want to read it, but I suggest you do, here are the main ideas and tech behind.
- Built with Next.js framework
react-markdownthat will parse and render Markdown files
- Blog posts are written with Markdown
gray-matterwill parse meta data from the blog posts that are in YAML, "front matter"
raw-loaderwill enable the possibility to load Markdown files with webpack
sassto help with styling the site
next-dark-modefor the color theme setting of the site
- Accessibility is payed attention to while creating the site
- Trying to validate with screenreader (VoiceOver) and with keyboard navigation
What will this site contain?
Idea is to add own pages for my projects: apps, games and others. And to occasionally write some blog post, mostly from something that I'm building or found interesting.
But I might also blog something that is not related to dev.
