Credits

I want to thank these projects that gave me an opportunity to build my web site.

  • Jekyll is a static site generator. It takes text written in your favorite markup language and uses layouts to create a static website. You can tweak the site’s look and feel, URLs, the data displayed on the page, and more. It is a wonderful project which is maintained by volunteers.

  • GitHub Pages Hosted directly from your GitHub repository. Just push the changes and the site will be automatically generated.
