This is my first post in my new blog on my new site. The code is open source, you can check it out on github here.
I have written the backend of this site in Django. I started work on it around Christmas and had the first cut out by New year, which was good going, as it was only my second project in Django. I am using a lot of, kinda, cool features for the front-end including:
- Asynchronous loading of pages: If your browser supports it, once you are on the site, other pages are loaded using Ajax, for super quick response (and a bit of fun with funky css animations)
- Funky header: Similar to what's on medium.com. The picture darkens and blurs as you scroll down. I also have to handle it disappearing so the page background shows.
- parallax scrolling: The background scrolls slower than the page and many more.
I will try and talk more about the features in due time.
