About the Site

This site is the blend of a few frameworks for web development. I use Minimal Mistakes to handle the CSS and site design. To manage the actual site content, I write up the pages in Markdown and use Jekyll to output HTML pages. Processing is done using the kramdown processor, which is compatible with GitHub Pages. In order to keep the version(s) of the site correct, and thereby make it easy to make changes, I use git. The LaTeX on the site is rendered using the MathJax CDN.
