The website has no database so that was pretty much ignored. But I wanted easy validation for forms and a good email library. This is handled nicely by Fuel. The docs are mostly good. I had to do a little google searching when I was trying to tie things in together.
Maybe in the next update I will switch to SVG images, but I digress.
The reason I didn’t use something like grunt.js is because I only had 2 tasks to run and it was only when I was ready to push to the server. I added a condition in the head and footer to check to see if the site was in production and load the minified versions or the normal big list of separate files. The rest was just testing and building. Creating content is always tough for me. I want to sound casual which some people don’t like. But it reflects me better so, whatever.
In conclusion, I am very happy with it. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback and suggestions. Everyday I make a few minor tweaks. Please check it out.
