Crafty Asset Management

Migrating assets to a new CMS can be a complete pain, but working out which files go with each page or article on a website doesn't have to be a nightmare if you start with a solid foundation. For me, that means tightly coupling my folder structure on the server with my content structure on the website, a workflow that Craft is particularly nifty at automating.

Grid Lock

An attempted experiment to replicate the blog layout of ilovetypography.com, which uses floats to great effect, with more modern CSS Grid and Flex techniques. Turned out to not be quite so simple, but taught me a lot about the benefits and limitations of CSS Grid.

Finding the Time

We have seven days in a week, 24 hours in a day – but what does that actually mean when trying to set aside time to work on side projects? Once you take into account work hours, time to eat and sleep, and everything in between, is it all as bad as it feels?

Game of Thrones: A Retrospective

Last night was the grand finale of Game of Thrones and whilst everyone else is jumping on this bandwagon I figured I'd throw my own thoughts into the ring.

About the Divide

The idea of a great divide in front-end development resonated with me. I'm worried about how the erosion of certain skills could lead to a less inclusive, accessible web, for both users and developers.

Where Are the Dragons?

Yesterday, we visited The Vyne, a National Trust location in Hampshire. I'd love to say that we'd gone to dig into the history of the area but, really, we went to catch-up with family and enjoy a […]

How to Fix a Broken Embedded Flickr Album

I recently had need to embed a Flickr album, as I've done many times before. When I published the article, however, the album was broken and only showed a single image. Odd, sure, but I figured I had […]

What's this, a new article? Containing a new Flickr album? Well, who would have […]

Solving Ancient Riddles with Neural Networks

I, like just about everyone who has ever heard of it, have been fascinated by the Voynich manuscript for years. The idea of an eldritch textbook, written in an encrypted script and with baffling, […]

The Parisianer: A (Hopeful) Future of Paris

I have to admit, after a particularly awful experience well over a decade ago I have deliberately avoided travelling through the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. As a result, I had no idea about […]
