Site Upgrades


Long time, no talk. I’ve been making some changes around here the last few days and figured I’d make a post about them. Perhaps the biggest usability improvement has been the addition of navigation breadcrumbs! Each page on the site now has a lovely trail of breadcrumbs at the top so you can find your way back if you go deep and forget where you are.

The other major addition to the markup is Open Graph tags. These <meta> tags inform instant messenger applications and social media platforms about the content of the page when you share a link. Now when sharing any page you should see a nice preview of the content and a pretty cover image (if one is available).

If you are interested in the nitty-gritty details of how these are implemented, just take a peek at the related commits on GitLab.
