Here’s a list of the stuff I used to make this site.
- Yst builds the site. I’ve written about yst on my blog: Part I, Part II.
- Google Web Fonts supplies the fonts. I use Bitter and Droid Sans Mono.
- Ubuntu is my operating system.
- Emacs makes writing stuff easier (eventually).
- rsync puts my stuff online.
- The “link” icon is designed by David Waschbüsch for Noun Project.
- The “download” icon is also from Noun Project.
