Side Projects

Tropical

A flexible, component-first static site generator.

Frustrated with the priorities and tradeoffs in popular static site frameworks, I made one with different priorities.

benandcamilla.in

A hand-rolled photoblog and an experimental attempt at doing big, beautiful photo stories faster, better and simpler than the big publishing platforms.

Dormant projects

  • Give Weekly: a newsletter aimed at directing some help to a single good cause
  • Dragster: better HTML5 drag events
  • Viewloader: JS components from the pre-component era
  • Style: an opinionated starting point for a scalable, maintainable CSS architecture
