So I’ve ditched Lagom.

  • It wasn’t mobile-responsive, no matter what it may claim.
  • I wasn’t able to get it to change typefaces.
  • It was doing some weird thing that was breaking my _plugins execution.

But that means I need to do some figuring around how to replicate the things that it did before that I liked:

  • easy color-theming.
  • nice looking, configurable social media links.
  • a left-hand sidebar.

New and interesting things I want to make happen:

  • some easy way to embed YouTube videos
  • Jekyll-idiomatic ErrorDocument stuff (404.html not showing up as a “page” but nevertheless being generated.)
  • A more-attractive typeface. My inclination is towards Playfair Display.
