Currently, this is my personal website. It's a big improvement from the old one because it's now dynamic and has a lot of updated features.
Most of the content on the site is real time. For example, the "Code Count" graph found on the front page is a live count of what programming languages I write based on aggregate counts of file extensions in my Dropbox (I store everything in a

Then, to start the website launch the webserver:
$ python manage.py runserver
Finally, navigate to your
I know the bower_components directory is stored here and it shouldn't be with the
.gitignore file, however, because I'm managing two remote origins (Heroku + GitHub), and Heroku (production) needs the modules, I'm leaving them here. Sorry.
