This website is a place where I experiment with different technologies, both old and new. It is designed to be easy to maintain and preserve. It is written in XML which is transformed to HTML using XSLT 1.0, a W3C specification widely supported by modern web browsers. For future-proofing and to avoid recurrent computation, pages are statically generated before publishing using xsltproc, a command line tool that comes pre-installed with many operative systems, such as macOS.

The webpages of this site are served via IPFS and are optimized to be able to be pinned individually without loosing important aspects, such as the styling. Instead of being linked to a rented domain name, a PURL domain is available that always points to the latest version of the website.

This website also tries to be efficient in terms of data and energy consumption. It applies system font stacks in order to avoid additional network requests for downloading webfonts and save the energy required to parse them. It also minimizes energy and data usage by providing a minimal layout and avoiding the use of JavaScript code. It is available in dark mode, which is automatically selected based on your system’s appearance setting. This may also reduce the amount of energy consumed by some screens.

This website takes inspiration from works such as the Emergency Site and Jim Nielsen’s blog. SVG icons come from iconmonstr and have been optimized with SVGOMG, an open source web application created on top of SVGO that runs entirely in the browser. Images are optimized using Squoosh, an open source image compression web application that also runs fully on the client-side.
