Giving this site another redesign

This site has been around since 2003, and has been on various platforms, and has had many redesigns.

For the past two years, it's been using Directus as a headless CMS, and has been built in Astro and hosted on vercel for the past year.

This latest redesign is still in Astro, hosted on Vercel and using Directus as a headless CMS, so not much changed in that regard.

But what did change:

  • Obviously the design has changed, although some areas still look the same such as the bookmarks page, but that will be changing shortly.
  • Images are now using Astro's Image Service to take advantage of better performance, this combined with images being uploaded to Directus gives a better experience overall.
  • I write all content on this site using Markdown. Previously I used Markdoc, which is great, but was a bit overkill in this case since I just do plain markdown, so instead, I am now using Marked, I may revisit Markdoc again down the road but right now, it's just not needed.
