Icons used across the site taken from the Entypo icon set.
Since this entire site is static, blog comments are achieved using Utterances which stores them in a public GitHub repo. I'm a supporter of the IndieWeb, and my site's markup is compatible with microformats2. While comments are in place for regular users, Webmentions on my static site are fully enabled with a combination of Bridgy, Webmention.io, and Webmention.js.
Once built, the site is deployed to Netlify using their CLI. Cloudflare powers the DNS, Proxy Cache, etc. BunnyCDN serves up CSS, images, and other static assets, while Cloudinary handles image transformations.
The site is part of the 1MB Club, which represents a growing collection of performance-focused web pages found across the Internet.
In terms of caching, the control headers set on Netlify's backend are
public,s-max-age=604800,max-age=3600 which provides a 1-hour local browser cache and a 1-week proxy cache (via Cloudflare), which is invalidated using Cloudflare's API when a new site build is deployed.
All static assets served up by BunnyCDN are overwritten with 1-month
cache-control headers, which comprise mainly of images, JS, and CSS but which are also invalidated using BunnyCDN's API when deploys are pushed to Netlify.
Webfonts and smaller images are
base64 encoded. This gives faster native rendering, reduces the number of HTTP requests, and makes use of Brotli compression.
