Proudly powered by pelican, which is powered by Python3.

Our theme was originally based on pelican-simplegrey.

We author our CSS using scss. We compile SCSS into CSS3 using pysassc. The SCSS/pysassc build process is managed by dmk.

Our entire compile/develop/deploy cycle is powered by make. When deploying, we use OpenSSH server and client (which includes scp) and rsync.

We serve this site with the Caddy webserver. We get our artisan TLS certificates fresh from Let’s Encrypt.
