Switching from WordPress to Hugo

I have recently migrated my blog from WordPress to Hugo. That is, switching from a database-based web content management system with loads of themes, plugins and a large user base to a statically generated site with no server-side logic and a small feature set where I must build most things myself. The switch was by no means necessary, I had cheap hosting at a web hotel I will still use for other sites after the migration, speed was good with WP Super Cache and so on. Read more...

Sass vs SCSS

As I have worked more and more with CSS during the last year, both at work and with an updated version of this blog, I have come to the following conclusions regarding the Sass vs SCSS syntax.

Azure Media Player Full Screen Resizing Fix

Particularly the size of the player when exiting full screen mode has been flaky. I can’t say for sure that this isn’t the fault of the web site it lives on, but I don’t see anything indicating that either. Read more...

Frustration with NodeJS on Windows

During the last couple of years I have noticed more and more developers switching to Mac, especially among those in the SharePoint field that traditionally have been very loyal to Microsoft. I see a correlation between this and the trend away from Visual Studio bound development. After playing around with NodeJS for awhile I understand why and hope for a change. Hopefully I can save you some googling with the links in this post if you run into the same issues as I have. Read more...
