It's Alive! Go live with the new site design

Well, I’ve finally finished the site update, and just in time as well as I have another article to write before the end of the year. Let’s take a look at the final site updates and see the result. List Pages While there was not much left to do, there are two content specific page types that I needed to make up to finish off the site. The first was the list pages for the blog and the articles.

Pure CSS Style and Some Tricks

I wanted to give my site a bit more of a personal feel to it with the redesign. I am also trying to stick to my thoughts around using only HTML and CSS. To serve both of these needs I have created my site as more of a desk top / drawing pad style feel. Front Page I spent a bit of time browsing Code Pen and CSS Tricks to implement the following front page.

Pure CSS Navbar, Flex and Grids

This week I started on the cleaning up of my site. One of the main reasons I am doing this, apart from refreshing the site a bit, is to learn and optimize the HTML and CSS. My current site uses Bootstrap under the covers, which has been fine and will probably be fine if I wanted continue down this path. However I like the idea of crafting something just for my needs and learning new things.

Static Websites using Azure Storage and CDN

As you may or may not know, I run my site on an Azure Web Service using Hugo and a Visual Studio build pipeline (Full Details Here). I have been reasonably happy with this service, however late last year Microsoft made hosting static websites on Azure Storage generally available. There are a number of benefits in hosting your static website on Azure storage, the primary factor being cost. Photo by TheAndrasBarta on Pixabay

Running a Hugo Site on Microsoft Azure

The Hugo Logo copyright © Steve Francia 2013 − 2018 I like Hugo, as I have mentioned before, and I prefer to host my site within Microsoft Azure for a number of reasons, including control and the fact I play with resources within Azure, so I thought it would be good to share how I constructed my build pipeline to make working with Hugo to build and publish content in Azure a bit more automated.
