Those of you who have built your own personal website or blog, what tech stacks do you use?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/webdev

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    For my last two personal websites I used Svelte (not Sapper or SvelteKit), married up with Page.js for client-side routing and Tailwind (+ PostCSS) for styling stuff. The sites are hosted from AWS S3 buckets with CloudFront for the CMS stuff. And because these projects are entirely personal I've not had to do a lot of worrying about the toolchain: both codebases are in git repositories; testing (when I bother) is manual; building/deployment are handled using various shell scripts.

  • Svelte
