About this Site

Content

Posts on this site are generally created as a reference whenever I learn something new (or reviewing something old) but want to remember later. The process of documenting work also helps in information digestion and retention. Hopefully something might end up being useful for someone else as well. Interests currently revolve around mechanical engineering (design, prototyping, analysis, CAD), materials science, Python programming, and VR. Also projects will be posted here.

Technical

This website consists of a custom Django application. It was developed because I previously used WordPress and the sites would become disorderly with various themes and plugins, and I wanted more control. Also WordPress is written in PHP; where Django is written in Python. This site's application features are barebones: basic blogging post and page functionality managed by the built-in Django admin, powered up by CKEditor and the django-filer application to manage uploaded media. The templating and styling were designed to be ultra minimal. Full responsive design is included using the Bootstrap framework.

Going through the process it is impressive how much can be built with Django with only a very little amount of code.
