As part of re-designing my new personal site, I found a few ways to make Jekyll-based development/workflow a little slicker. Hope it's helpful for some people!
Mine was an observation based on the comments I see.
I'm also making a statement based on my own experience of pre/post having kids.
What I've learnt about DN users:
Not many of you have kids...
Mornings aren't quite so free with kids!
Just a small tip, but take comfort in the fact that within 5 minutes of your talk beginning, most (if not all) of those pre-talk nerves will be washed away. And also, try not to speak as fast as your mind is racing, else your 30 minute content will be over in ~17 minutes...

As a person who's built a bunch of stuff over the years, and now spending all of your time on Plasso, are you still hit with smaller ideas for app/services? Would you still pursue them (build/release) for your own enjoyment/experimentation, or will you push them aside to remain focussed on Plasso?
Hey all, author of the plugin here. Some updates:
It's now 90% faster. I resize the image on the Canvas to 10% of it's original size before reading the pixel data, therefore reducing the size of the array I need to process.
It now also works in FF and Safari (as well as Chrome) due to overall improvements on the way I create the gradients.
Thanks for all the feedback, it's been a fun plugin to build!
Thanks for your feedback!
There's no reason at all why you can't use this setup with Jekyll. The set it up like I had it, then when Jekyll detects the file changes (from Sass or Browserify, etc) then it'll compile your site into the
_site folder! I find the beauty of this minimal setup is that it's project-agnostic and flexible...
Thought you guys on here may enjoy this. Especially if you're used to using Grunt/Gulp and interested in an alternative, cleaner (IMO) workflow...
