I just released a new version of justmarkup.com. 🎉 This is now the 8th version of this site and while it is still far from perfect, I decided it is about time to release it anyway.
In terms of layout there isn't much of a change since the last version, but I tried to make it more readable and also improved the design of the code examples and the embed data. I certainly will tweak the design more in the next weeks and also plan to make extra design for some pages - Whenever I find the time for that.
I also decided to not use web fonts for now - mostly because I couldn't decide which one to use, but I definitely plan to use one for recurring visitors in the future.
The biggest change in this version is that it is no longer using WordPress. Instead I now use Eleventy and I am pretty happy about it so far. As I first step I transformed all my WordPress posts to Markdown using puppeteer, and from there I used the Eleventy Base Blog as a starting point.
The main benefits of the switch are that I now can use Markdown for writing (I already did this in the past, but now I don't need to convert to WordPress Posts anymore), and that the performance improved quite a bit.
Some may miss the possibility to comment on an article. While I won't bring back regular comments I will implement Webmentions soon and will also show all old comments underneath the article.
