This project started as the base for a personal homepage. The fundamentals used are Mirah for the programming language and Dubious for web framework. Mirah and Dubious are both evolving heavily but maybe this example provides a starting point for similar projects.
As a prerequisite you need to install Dubious I recommend using the Gem in JRuby. The website has been tested with the Gem version 0.0.2.
Experiments in this application include:
- HTML5/CSS3 elements like section, rounded borders, transparency.
- JQuery for dynamic page loading and animations hiding/showing certain elements.
- Webfonts for the main heading
- Language detection (German/English) and redirect based on preferences in http header
- Random background image, changes every 30 min
You can see the site in action here: Stefan Michaelis Homepage.
