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.
The color palettes are organized and manipulated with help from the excellent macOS color app Colorslurp. Graphics are manipulated via Figma, and Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (they don’t need a link).
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 Mastodon feed.
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.
The Library CSS section makes use of CodePen for code examples.
