Homebrew Website Club London

Calum Ryan:

Welcome to Homebrew website club - my website is https://calumryan.com - I started working on it 5 years ago

the most recent change I have made to it is to use CSS Grid for it, which is more cosmetic

My site supports webmentions, and is hooked up to brid.gy for twitter and facebook replies too. I was the first person to post weather status

I post checkins to my site and syndicate them out

Dave Letorey:

I'm Dave - I only just built a personal website at https://letorey.co.uk/ - it has not much design at the moment, but the most important part is the content not the way it looks

as we go into the future wiht screen readers and voice UI how it looks matters less, so rather than worrying about looks I just made a simple grid layout

I don't have any javascript - just simple CSS - the whole point is to learn, and docusmetn what I am doing

Chris Burnell:

I'm Chris - I use my website for testing mainly - I went the other way round and obsessed with how it looked

this year is the year of writing content. I am using webmention.io at the moment - I'd like to add a micropub endpoiny

Kevin Marks:

my website is kevinmarks.com but I have been experimenting with the Beaker browser and Fritter

so my website is also available at dat://b7930c5e0d55aee8aeb6fa996c8e782e2e9b99b62bf25cab0be7ae195f56a158
