How is this site run?

The site is open source, so you can see for yourself here!

It uses Zola to generate static files which are run by Codeberg Pages. Zola lets me write markdown and use templating, which lets me use building blocks to make the website great.

During development, I run zola serve and simply change the files. Once I’m done making changes, I’ll commit, push the changes, and run a script that :publishes the changes.

The site’s styling is almost entirely Tufte CSS. This is what allows sidenotes Like this one and various other niceties. The links with dotted underlines are powered by :Nutshell, a really cool project that allows me to link together parts of my site. Crucially, the links work as normal when there is no javascript enabled.
