Experiment w/ a Static Site Generator to Design a Quick Portfolio

Built Using Roots.cx


Bower Packages


Notes & Comments

  • It is a wild west shoot-out of static site generators nowadays. I first ran into both Jekyll and Middleman which were both developed in ruby. Looking for a node.js-based alterative, I found an article by Kevin Lewis and soon began clicking through the docs and tutorials over on roots.cx.

Out of the box roots comes with a mix of jade for templating, stylus for css pre-processing and the axis library. I removed some of these defaults in favor of a jade, skeleton, and sass combo. Stylus did seem tempting but i preffered to work with sass for now. roots files
