aaaaaaa finally, first version of my one page portfolio eschatonaut.space/

i wanted to make better use of the space on big screen but I want to send applications ASAP

that was the advantage of written my own ugly static site generator in a day. Update are fast

pretty happy it took 3 days : one to gather media and write the markdown. one to write a ugly static site generator and work on the gallery, and the last to finish every little details and add interactions

@neauoire yah that's probably what ill do next. lots lots lots of media.

@ragekit i'm sure this looked great when testing locally but it load horridly slowly :blobsad:

@ragekit Help break my brain sometime when it's not 3am for me?

@ragekit
Oh, I meant maybe I could look at your code sometime. I'm writing my own as well

@dualhammers my parents are visiting so I won't be online this week end !

@ragekit oh man, you need to use jpegs instead, or optimize your images, they just raw pixels (as in BMP or TGA)

this image: eschatonaut.space/media/sample (750x750px) -- 1.6 Mb

after basic optimization: (attached) -- 90 kb. that's 5% of initial size!

@dym i thing im going to add it as a pass to my build file. do you have any good lib that would do a nice job (node). At first I was thinking of using graphics magic/ffmpeg to convert png to jpeg and gif to mp4

@ragekit github.com/imagemin/imagemin looks like what you need.
personally, i just use desktop app to optimize all images locally, since it will take less time uploading )

@ragekit @dym Last time I did the same thing, I also found imagemagick to work decently.

@ragekit nice work! I like the little touches like the titles shooting off to the left while scrolling, gives it character :^)

@ragekit A note: on mobile, the "js renderer" headline wraps to two lines when it moves to the center, making the whole site suddenly shift. Maybe you can change the right wrapping point somehow?
