Design

This website is built for usability, maintainability, and speed in mind.

Usability

This website is built on top of the Semantic UI CSS framework and fully implements responsive design.

The color scheme is almost monotone with a slight accent of adonis blue so that the actual content gets enough attention.

Maintainability

As detailed below, a certain part of this website is dynamically built from a set of well-structured data source, every time the data source is updated.

The building pipeline makes a low-maintenance and easy-to-test website.

Speed

The website is mostly made of static HTML/CSS files and does not require much server- nor client-side processing before rendering.

The only exception is a web font that could take some time to load, but is essential for the beautiful typography.

Code and data

This website is a collection of static HTML/CSS/JavaScript files. It is built from code and data every time something is pushed to the master branch of the GitHub repository. The build pipeline is executed on Travis CI.

During the build process, the following files are used as data source. Feel free to steal the data structure for making your own portfolio website or making HTTP requests to these data files in your application (but ... for what?)
