I’ve had a website at www.gyford.com since late 1997. Here’s the Internet Archive’s first version, from June 1998. Before that I had a website at www.paranoia.com/~fabius from 1995, which is archived here.
This current site, launched in 2018, contains all the content from previous versions of the site, from 2000 onwards, when I first started a weblog here. I wrote about creating the site’s code in this blog post. Pages containing writing from earlier versions retain their original designs:
This site is written in the python framework Django and hosted on Heroku. The code I’ve written is available on GitHub, including:
- django-ditto, which aggregates my Tweets, Flickr photos, Pinboard bookmarks and Last.fm listening.
- django-spectator, which I use to track my reading and events I’ve been to.
- django-hines, which contains the weblog and all the other parts of the site, glueing it all together.
The HTML and CSS is, in parts, adapted from Bootstrap. I have created a pattern library of the elements used across the site.
