Website Update: Version 0.3Website Update update · strata · url · namecheap · kevinwli
Another quarter of classes has come and passed, and yet another update has gone live. Take a look at the shortlist of changes:
- New URL
- New Theme
- New Portfolio
Yes, there is a new url now. No offense Github, but I was getting sick of the “lilingkai.github.io”, so I went on Namecheap in search for a custom domain name. Unfortunately, kevinli.com is taken and the user is selling it for a very expensive price ($500 minimum offer!), so I elected to go with kevinwli.com for a more reasonable $10/year. Setting up the custom domain was a piece of cake as both Github Pages and Namecheap had step by step tutorials that were easy to follow.
The old Tranquilpeak theme wasn’t compatible with Hugo 0.19, and I wanted to have a nice way of displaying all the noteworthy projects I’ve done, so I figured it was time for another theme update. Strata had the closest thing to what I was looking for, except the default template was set up for showing off photography portfolios. After changing fonts and some colors, I repurposed the picture portfolio boxes to link directly to my projects. Which leads into the next point…
As you can see, on the home page, there is now a section that displays my projects. Please feel free to check those out. I’ve added some pretty cool ones, particularly Harmonious Monk, which is an automatic jazz harmonizer that I just made this past quarter with two teammates.
You can expect a quarterly report of sorts coming within the next few days (by the end of spring break at the latest).comments powered by Disqus
