My website is now live! Actually, it’s been live for a few days by now, I’m just a bit late to make the post. As you can see, it’s not completely done, but don’t worry, I’ll still be pushing new updates and content to it.
There’s a few posts before this that I wrote while the website was in development. Please feel free to look at those as well.
My release versions are on a semantic versioning system.
We are currently in major version
0, which I will consider the “beta” phase.
The website doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that I want it to have, but
I will slowly add more as we go along. When I reach a version that I consider to
be extremely user friendly and it shows off everything I want it to show off, I
will call that major version
1, or the “release” phase.
Roadmap for the near future
In version 0.2, I will make mostly infrastructural changes to my website, but I will improve on some of the user-facing website features as well.
I’m completely throwing out my current monolithic Gatsby configuration and replacing it with a more modular, advanced, and type-safe configuration that leverages modular plugins, TypeScript, and GraphQL type checking. I won’t be adding much content as a result of this change, except for perhaps a blog post explaining how it works, unfortunately, but it will make my life a lot easier and make content easier to produce in the future.
I will redesign the portfolio page to be more user-friendly.
- I’ll add a sidebar with filtering options so that you can select specific tags to view.
- I’ll attempt to also reduce the download size as well, so that users don’t have to download as much data when viewing it.
Going along with the portfolio page, I will also improve on the project detail pages as well, hopefully integrating it with the outer portfolio page.
And finally, as always, bugfixes when I find them. Or, when you find them and report them to the issues page.
That just about sums up my plans. I will release another post when
out. Thank you, and please stay tuned!
