Information about this website and how it was built.
This site utilizes the static site generator Hugo, and is presented using a custom theme created from scratch by me. It’s built on a system of design tokens, modular patterns, and a minimal visual design that highlights the content.
Typefaces used are
"Montserrat", sans-serif for headings and the device default font stack of
-apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Segoe UI", Roboto, Oxygen-Sans, Ubuntu, Cantarell, "Helvetica Neue", sans-serif for body copy.
Updates to the site are also broadcast to Micro.blog, which concurrently posts a link to my Twitter feed.
My email contact form is handled via GetForm.
The ratings sections are built using Airtable for collecting and arranging the databases.
The dev environment for bradbice.com utilizes Git (hosted on Github), alternating between Nova by Panic and (ugh) Visual Studio Code, the iOS Shortcuts app, and Terminal for macOS. I also from time-to-time make use of Sourcetree for visualizing Git changes a little easier.
This site is hosted on Netlify, and the domain is registered through Namecheap.
I write long-form posts using Bear , and micro-blog posts from my devices using a custom iOS Shortcut (which uses Working Copy for iOS to push to the git repository).
