Added another site for learning purposes #3917
A week ago, I asked @parkr via email if he could add my site here (mostly because I thought it's too cheeky to just propose a pull request). But now he told me that it's better to just do it here:
I'm asking because I spend a huge amount of time and effort on making it great and usefully structured for people who're just getting started with Jekyll. Therefore it's also great as a forked starting-point, if you ask me. Besides keeping the code clean, I also spend much time on making the site as fast as possible. There's not much CSS in use, the HTML is clearly structured and I've did a lot for the performance.
There's also a lot of "include"-thinking happening for things like embedded Tweets, images or iFrames - which most people just inline in each post. When making a significant change, I also always make sure to write a few paragraphs about why I exactly did it as a commit message. And when it comes to really big updates, I write entire posts too (explaining all improvements and their benefits to the site's performance/look).
Here's an recent example: http://leo.im/notes/v2/
I'm definitely sure that many people could get something out of it. Don't you think so too?
@parkr Thanks! I have to admit there are a few unconventional expressions in there. But they're not pointed into the direction of the reader, but rather regarded to things. All in all they're definitely needed to give my posts the necessary weighting in certain cases.
