All new: Truth & Beauty Operations

Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 15.21.49

After many months — building your own sites is hard! — I am finally able to launch truth-and-beauty.net, my new portfolio site! It replaces the old moritz.stefaner.eu, which now lives at archive.stefaner.eu, as I was not able to (and probably won’t) migrate all old contents over.

A few notes on technology – I knew I wanted a static site generator, rather than a database driven site. Being able to sync, version control, move the whole site with normal file operations is such a huge win. After a few experiments with Jekyll, Octopress and DocPad, I finally settled for kirby. I really don’t like php. But I really like kirby. It is the only half-way sane CMS I know and working with it has been a breeze so far. Thanks Bastian!

    Nice! Congrats for the re-design. Well done.

    One thing: old URLs which now point to a 404 error page, such as http://truth-and-beauty.net/projects/content-landscape/, would ideally redirect to the new old site. There’s a .htaccess rule for that, such as: if URL not found, redirect domain to …

    That’s what I did with my own relaunch recently.

    (Of course, I meant http://moritz.stefaner.eu/projects/content-landscape/ as example)

    Thanks Gregor, makes sense. I did not want to forward all 404s (could also be due to typos, or whatever), but of course I could manually redirect all projects that are missing on the new site..
