lol…glad you like it. Yeah, it puts a smile on my face, so I figured that’s a good start. And it helps to know that a few here are responding positively. I have so many other features I want to add, too. Added the little time/date this morning in the top right. Got about 100 more of those like a little notepad, draggable stickies, a mini calculator, etc. Why? idk; it’s fun!
I wrote the blog using Astro and am hosting on Netlify. I’m using the new-ish hybrid rendering so that most of the site is built statically, but a few routes are server-side rendered. Is that what you were wondering? Happy to answer any other questions.
Yeah, I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s both simple in that it’s essentially like writing HTML, but has powerful templating and can use components from other frameworks (React, Svelte, etc.). Plus, you can render SSG, SSR, hybrid rendering (mostly SSG with some SSR routes), or dynamic rendering (mostly SSR with some SSG routes). It’s multi-page app, but there are some rumblings about making a single-page app option. It strikes the right balance between simplicity and progressive complexity for me.
