My personal website has gone through several iterations. Here I briefly describe the motivation and technologies behind each major version.
V1 - Jekyll ¶
Inspired by several friends, I began learning about web development in December 2018. Using Jekyll with the Moon theme, I built a personal website and hosted it on GitHub Pages. Though the website looked good, I hardly knew how it worked, so I explored further.
V2 - “Vanilla” ¶
V3 - React ¶
V4 - Jekyll (again) ¶
Thus, I came full circle and decided to use Jekyll once more, initially with the al-folio theme, and then with the TeXt theme – with numerous custom tweaks, of course. I also integrated React into this theme, allowing me to add interactive components when needed.
V5 - Eleventy ¶
