A new minimalistic website

By Michael Anckaert - last updated on and originally published on - posted in General

I've been reworking my website to a new, much more minimalistic look and feel.

To me it was very important to have a website that was quick loading, readable and respected the privacy of visitors. For that reason I've been working on creating a new static website using Pelican, a static site generator. The website contains no tracking, so no Google Analytics or other stuff. At the moment there is no Javascript present, which I don't expect I'll need no matter what for this sort of website.

I was reading the article This is a web page by Justin Jackson and was really inspired. While powerful, forget about images. Just start with words.
