My web pages are in serious need of an overhaul. In the past I’ve built my sites using RapidWeaver, but it was never particularly future proof: something always needed updating.

Now I’m switching to Jekyll, which I used for the first time over the summer. Relative to a WYSIWYG editor it’s a bit more work, but you feel like you know what’s going on under the bonnet. There’s a large ecosystem, lots of themes, free hosting on GitHub Pages. The ease of writing in Markdown and rendering mathematics with MathJax is wonderful.

\[ \int f(x)\,dx \]

See?

It would be great to integrate this with Symplectic and / or ORCID to get an automatically updated publication list. Let’s see.
