Huge thanks — fixed #1, can't recreate 2 or 3. What browser were you on?
Thanks for the feedback! It's definitely more dense that a normal site I'd make, but was aiming for a feel similar to magazine spreads like this:
Thanks! Some details:
Steps and weight data go to Healthkit, which I then upload data from using an iOS app (no easy API I could find for that — I used to use Numerous which has since shut down)
Productivity is coming from Rescuetime, which I highly recommend as a way to keep track of how you're spending time at a high level. "Productive" time is defined by category and customizable by you (for me, code/design/reading is productive, social media and email are not)
Medium posts coming via a Medium RSS feed, books coming via Goodreads API
Grid is all CSS grid and Tachyons. Highly recommend CSS grid — this was my fist time using it for a full project and it's very easy to lay things out. Small tip, start from mobile and work to desktop, even if desktop is more complicated/customized. I did the opposite and ended up with lots of edge cases on mobile
Yep, using the Goodreads API for that — was surprisingly easy to pull from.
Any and all feedback welcome!
Thanks for the kind words! Re: Citymapper, I've ended up being the same way. It's really context dependent, and I hope Citymapper keeps thinking about holes in the product so I can switch over 100%. Just felt like I needed to write something about one of my favorite homescreen apps :)
Thanks Jeff, 100%. Was going for a lightweight personal site and I plan to add more portfolio pieces in the future as I write them up :)
Thanks Thomas! That's coming via a Pinboard private RSS feed—I tag articles I like with #nowreading and the latest article shows up there.
