New Website

Since I’m working with Unreal on a AAA game my desire to fully understand the tech I’m working with and to keep the tech stack as small as possible got even stronger. I guess because it is almost impossible to fully understand the Unreal code base and because it has grown for decades. That’s why I’m creating this website from scatch without any templates, themes or libraries.

But I’m using Hugo, TypeScript and SASS. I didn’t really like web development in the past, because JavaScript is not static typed and I prefer errors at compile time. And I was annoyed by some of the CSS limitations. With TypeScript and SASS it is not perfect, but a lot better. And I love the fast iteration times compared to my daily-job. 🙂

Hugo and the Go templates turned out to be quite limited, but so far I was able to work around that.
