I occasionally build tech demos and research projects and write about things. This will be an ongoing list of things I'm doing.

Fly me to the Moon

Link: https://wail.es/fly-me-to-the-moon/

A really long piece looking at the history of spaceflight. Built in React.js as a proof of concept for a few ideas.

History of Humanity

A demo application for examining how Google crawls server-side rendered JavaScript using links and events.

OpenDAWS

OpenDAWS is a LESS CSS framework, built with ideas from or by:

It uses flexbox and sane defaults to make building front ends less painful, without requiring all the overhead of things like Bootstrap or Foundation.

Upholsterygeist

Upholsterygeist is a minimalist Ghost theme built using OpenDAWS, available here. This site runs with it, so you're already looking at a demo of it.

Minigeist

Minigeist is a minimalist version of Upholsterygeist, stripped back even further to have only 4kb of CSS. It's available here.
