Update: This was referring to the previous incarnation of this blog. It doesn’t apply any more.
A quick overview of the pieces pulled together to make this blog.
- Nesta CMS forms the base of the blog. It works great out of the box but is also very easy to extend and modify.
- The layout CSS was created with the Compass CSS framework. The Susy plugin is the best grid system i’ve come across
- HAML instead of HTML
- SCSS instead of CSS
- The map is from the Google Static Maps API which allows you to apply custom styles to the maps
- The site is hosted on Heroku
