Wrote an article on Smashing Magazine
I just published my first Smashing Mag article! This sums up all my learnings from these past 2 years, going from a React-only lifestyle to Pug, @eleven_ty, and finally to my first open source foray with @slinkitydotdev. It's likely my biggest min read too, so I hope you're hungry πŸ₯ͺ

Started to maintain open-source project
Launched a project
Just launched an early alpha of Slinkity! This project is built the bridge the 2 camps of static website development:
  • Starting with easy-to-learn tools like markdown and liquid templates (using 11ty)
  • Building up to powerful, interactive component frameworks like React and Vue (using the Vite JavaScript bundler)
It feels good pushing my perfectionism to the side and getting something out there. If you want to try it out (and don't mind logging some bug reports πŸ™ƒ), head to our quick start guide!
