More developments for the site

Posted on June 23, 2020 with 237 words.

It’s kind of weird to be quiet for quite a long time. I didn’t have a good topic to write on as I’ve focused myself on further polishing of my website. So far, I’m really happy with the outcome and at the same time, I’m familiarizing myself with front-end development.

I just realized today that front-end development goes beyond configuring a static site website. There are a lot of frameworks for Javascript and it would take an insane amount of time to learn them all and so far, I’ve only managed to learn Go on the fly because of Hugo.

I just finished configuring Webpack and tomorrow, I’ll merge the Merge Request I made with Webpack. Thanks to this article and the Victor Hugo template, I manage to make Webpack work without the need for Gulp.

The journey was not easy especially for me who is very new to these tools. I never used Gulp and Webpack during college. I also never used Git during thesis and Bootstrap when I was making my first website although I was a little familiar with SCSS.

The learning curve was so steep that I wouldn’t be familiar with these tools if I didn’t use a static site generator.

Right now, I’m planning on further optimization for my website and hopefully land that lights out 100 in Google Lighthouse as well as making my site a Progressive Web App, or PWA.
