I am planning to blog the process of redesigning and redeveloping this site. This is the first installment of the process. This week I am just focussing on how the site looks, and developing static blocks which can be included everywhere in the site. I’ve been using Twitter’s bootstrap for rapid CSS development, but I may end up dropping it and writing everything by hand. We shall see.
The other tech I have been using is the Dancer micro-framework, loosley based on Sinatra. I have been making the templates with good old Template Toolkit which is quite the best templating system I know.
