About the site

This is already the second version of my website and like the version before it was built with love and a cherry-picked selection of open source tools
Although, this time I exchanged some of the tools just to try something new.
I decided to build the site using the popular Hugo to keep the code cleaner and to use Sass conveniently, although a simple static HTML page would have done a good job as well.
Responsiveness is done using the flex grid of Picnic CSS, which was also responsible for the blog button in the upper right corner. I love its simplicity!
The main font I'm using is called Fira Sans from Mozilla. The font I'm using for my name is called Learning Curve, while the icons I used for my social links come from Font Awesome. After trying the system's emojis first, I decided to force the same emojis on all platforms by using Emoji CSS.
The page is hosted in the Netherlands on a Debian server from Liteserver running Caddy, which is probably the easiest HTTP server to configure
Those weird shapes are done using a CSS clip path with polygons, see the corresponding part of my CSS here. In case the website looks weird to you, it could be because your browser sadly does not support that feature yet.
Also the rest of the changes to this website are done in public, you can find the source code here
