With the official locking of >>>/tech/
I'm moving my development log thread here. Feel free to ask questions, make comments, or pass on your suggestions. Much of the template is now complete, the CSS is responsive, usable on every browser that has rem support, and only 3815 bytes. There is still some work to be done which I'll mention in a reply following this. As it stands the plan is to start programming the back-end in OCaml this Monday leaving the finishing touches in the front-end for a later date.
The site should be minimalist. Adding elements unnecessarily makes everything more difficult to implement for and slower.
The site should be responsive. I don't own a device with a touchscreen, but they are omnipresent, and there is no reason that you shouldn't be able to use a website with your touchscreen device well.
The site should be compatible. I'd like to see support for more or less every desktop platform since ~2000 (this is easily done with MyPal PaleMoon, and TenFourFox) and more or less every "smart device" ever.
Text formatting should be subtle and compose as expected. There should be nothing that would feel be out of place in a book or article.
Web-fonts should not be used. Web-fonts don't improve the usability of the site but increase bandwidth usage and hinder performance for users.
