Site redesign 2019

Before I decided to redesign this website, I wanted to have a simple blog system directly on this same site. No more additional blog system that needs to be installed and handled separately. I wanted to have a site simple enough to easily publish new content, but also flexible enough to adjust it to my needs.


I settled with Gridsome, a super-fast Vue.js powered static site generator. Development with Gridsome was a breeze since it supports instant hot-reloading for any data change. Even for blog posts which are written in Markdown.


The deployment process with Netlify is easy enough as adding a new site and configuring the build process by selecting the repository/branch and using the following settings:

  • Build command: gridsome build
  • Publish directory: dist

Netlify will then continouosly build the site when the specified branch is updated.
