This Website

I built this website using python and flask so that I can get the styling looking nice once and not have to deal with it when writing. All content is written in markdown and then generated into pages. It looks something like this:

I built this website using python and flask so that I can get the styling looking
nice once and not have to deal with it when writing. All content is written in
markdown and then generated into pages. It looks something like this:

This allows me to add projects as they happen without having to deal with HTML and CSS. All images are uploaded full sized and then dynamically resized where they are used to the size that is required. Everything is thrown together using templates so I only had to make two pages for the whole site.

Finally Frozen-Flask goes through every page and compiles it into super fast static HTML. This is done on every commit to the repository by a continuous integration pipeline hosted by Gitlab.

So how much does all this cost? Nothing. It's free.

Gota love Gitlab.
