My open-source contributions

I’ve added a page listing the contributions I’ve had accepted by open-source projects. This is mostly so I have a list that I can refer to but hopefully also helps to highlight the importance of contributing back to the community when you have the opportunity.

Now Powered by Jekyll

I’ve just switched this site from running on my own PHP scripts to being generated by the excellent Jekyll. I’ve previously tried WordPress and Drupal but found them to be quite ‘heavy’ and involve a lot of setting up to fit this site but Jekyll is lightweight and suits me very well.

As a consequence of the update, I may have inadvertently broken a few things - please let me know if you notice anything…

Site Tweaks

I’ve made some small adjustments to the site header to improve the layout, made the news pages more consistent, and adjusted the stylesheet to help the whole site work better for users who prefer larger fonts.

Also, I’ve added an additional stylesheet which should improve the browsing experience on mobile browsers, as they are becoming much more popular. This should make the site work much better than before on mobiles, but I’ve still got some more testing and tweaks to do.

Site Changes

I have updated the site design to make it easier to navigate and less cluttered. Let me know what you think of the new design!
