Colophon

The site is built with Jekyll and uses a custom Bootstrap compiled from SASS.

The site is hosted from GitHub. In order to be able to use a grunt pipeline, I don’t rely on Github’s Jekyll build logic, but instead develop on a separate branch and commit the result (with the help of grunt-build-control) to the master branch.

Typography

The main font is Crimson Text by Sebastian Kosch. The contact icons are from Font Awesome by Dave Gandy – http://fontawesome.io, embedded with the help of Fontello.

Images

The avatar originates from some web-hosted generator for Skype avatars. I must have created the image in 2007 or 2008, and when asked years later about it, I couldn’t find the provider anymore, I suspect they are gone.

The world map on the CV is from amcharts.com, with the cities added manually afterwards. I took the idea from Sara Soueidan’s site.

Development

I use a grunt pipeline heavily inspired by Yeoman’s webapp generator, customized to work with Jekyll on GitHub. Hence there’s grunt-usemin, grunt-filerev, grunt-browser-sync, etc.

grunt-responsive-images is set up to provide different sizes for the images. grunt-critical and grunt-uncss are part of the CSS processing.

Google PageSpeed Insights is watched upon with a grunt-pagespeed task in combination with ngrok.
