I’ve been working for the past few weeks on redesigning my website.
After I hired a designer, well… because I’m just so bad at designing, I started working on implementing her PSD mockups into HTML/CSS.
For the responsive part I used flexboxgrid.com, for the first time actually.
It was pretty neat… I was using bootstrap all the time for the grid system so changing it with light option, was nice. I also get to play more with flexbox.
The main reason, beside the design change, was that I wanted to drop my hostgator.com host, because they don’t offer a server running NodeJS, so I built my own on a digitalocean.com droplet, which was quite fun actually. Learned to play with pm2 and security stuff xD.
I also implemented a small CMS which allow me to CRUD my blog posts. I didn’t wanted to stress out to much regarding authentication, so I learned firebase to handle that for me. It was much much simpler… It also stores all my blog posts for free (for now ^_^), which is cool.
I’ll appreciate if you can take a look at my website, and feel free to let me know any bugs you might find. You can check it out: florin-pop.com.
P.S. Make sure you check the mobile web version of it also, I got a pretty slick navigation menu on there, you’ll love it!
