Aqeel Akber’s personal website
See https://admiralakber.github.io and enjoy
I wrote this website for mobile first with a KISS philosophy from scratch. I wanted to see how beautiful of a reading experience I can create for the reader with nothing but the basics.
I have put little to no effort into optimising it for performance. I wanted the reader to be able to right click, view source, and be able to understand what I did if they wanted. Teaching / Sharing / Learning are part of what I want this website to instill. Because it is so basic, and honestly it’s my personal blog so I don’t get much traffic, I’m not concerned about the performance hit of serving comments in my code to the user.
Visual design inspired by minimalism, scientific journal articles, and originally by https://colah.github.io
The user experience is designed for comfortable reading like a book and app like familiarity.
Making your own blog and contributing
Once you’re up and running, I would appreciate a backlink or shoutout if you can and please let me know about your blog!
Using GitHub issues for communications
- If you’re interesting in making a blog but are newbie and really stuck, make
an issue with the how-do-i-even tag. I’m happy to help you on this journey
and I hope others will too. No question to silly. Yay
- If you’re a bit more experienced but you still don’t get how something is working use the question tag. If it’s about something of the content of my blog, best make a comment on the website itself.
- If you find something wrong with my website, please report it with either the: bug or invalid tags. Please include your operating system, browser version, and a screenshot of the issue.
- I would love to hear your ideas for enhancements
Generated with Jekyll
This website is compiled with Jekyll. I like it. It’s dead simple. Perfect for this project.
Hosting on GitHub pages provides transparency. You may observe the commit history. Keep me honest.
You can see that I have PGP signed my commits, personally validating their content. If you trust my PGP key, you can trust the content is me.
Without content, a website is worthless. Integrating my org workflow has made it mentally easier for me to generate more awesome content.
