About this site

The tools under the hood, and answers to questions no one has actually asked.

What tools are used to make this site?

This website is made with Quarto (Allaire 2023). The code resides in a GitHub repo, and is hosted for free through Netlify.

Check out the Quarto docs on creating websites to learn about making your own, and the section on publishing with Netlify if you’d like to do that.

Quarto sits on the shoulders of several other open-source projects, such as Pandoc, Bootstrap, and Deno, which you can learn more about in Quarto’s open-source-license documentation.

What fonts are those?

The font family I use here (most of the time) is Concourse by Matthew Butterick, as well as the occasional dash of Heliotrope (also by Butterick). They’re neither free nor open source, but I think of it as a small price to pay for something I look at so often (and also because I reference his free book, Practical Typography (Butterick 2020), on the regular).
