My web pages are in serious need of an overhaul. In the past I’ve built my sites using RapidWeaver, but it was never particularly future proof: something always needed updating.

Now I’m switching to Jekyll, which I used for the first time over the summer. Relative to a WYSIWYG editor it’s a bit more work, but you feel like you know what’s going on under the bonnet. There’s a large ecosystem, lots of themes, free hosting on GitHub Pages. The ease of writing in Markdown and rendering mathematics with MathJax is wonderful.


It would be great to integrate this with Symplectic and / or ORCID to get an automatically updated publication list. Let’s see.
