Hello! This is my website.

Firelists

After playing with AngularJs for some time I decided I wanted to try EmberJs as well.

Fun with Firebase

I’ve been playing around with Firebase the last couple of weeks. They offer a hosted document database service that allows for real time (or almost at least) syncing of data very easily.

New design and LD 28

It’s been a while (again) since my last update. Partly this is because I’ve been playing a bit with Ruby and Rails. I had plans of replacing my Github Pages-hosted site and make something in Rails instead, but finally decided to stick with this one. Instead I’ve created a new design (comments are welcome!) that I’ve worked on for a bit of time. I’ll update the game pages in the next few days and then it should be done!

Ludum Dare 27

It’s been quite here for a few month now. First came summer and with it less computer time. Then came my son (six weeks early) and with him even less computer time.

Switching to GitHub pages

This is pretty cool indeed! My website is now up and running on GitHub pages. My first impressions are that it is very easy to get started with and use. It also has exactly the features I need:

  • Simple editing of posts and pages (html and markdown)
  • Easy administration of website (git and notepad++)
  • Source control (GitHub, obviously)
