Website updates

Today I implemented a few more-than-welcomed updates to the website since there was some stuff missing (and some stuff was obsolete).

  • New search implemented statically using Lunr.js, based on the original code by Jamie Tanna.
  • New statistics page using charts.js to provide some info on my writing habits, based on the original code by Jamie Tanna.
  • New sitemap page to provide easy access to some pages that are hidden from plain navigation menu.
  • Removed categories, they were pointless since tags are better suited for my website content.
  • Removed menu section navigation (/post), moved the section navigation to the sitemap page and replaced it with the new archive page.
  • Split the music and quotes into separate sections.
  • Added an ATOM feed to the website 1.
  • Added a JSON feed to the website.
  • Added an OPML feed list to the website 2.
  • Implemented h-feed 3.
  • Added a personal h-card 4 to the homepage, hidden from plain view.

Hopefully my readers will like the changes.

  2. OPML stands for Outline Processor Markup Language, an XML-based format and defacto standard used for feed lists interchange. ↩︎

  3. h-feed is a microformats2 draft specification with a top level feed object to contain h-entry posts and optionally a common author. It is functionally a DRYer replacement for RSS/Atom feed files and thus could supersede them. ↩︎

  4. h-card is the microformats2 vocabulary for marking up people, organizations, and venues on web sites. ↩︎
