Official Site for Brittani S Avery
This site, brittanisavery.com, is the official website for all things me. Books, code projects, blog posts, and other updates will be here first and foremost.
The first version of my personal website solely focused on my life as a published author, highlighting my book. I quickly set up on the drag-and-drop website builder Wix just in case a non-developer needed to update my website.
I introduced version 2 of my website on May 11, 2020 in the first post of my new blog, New Year, New Look, Same Me. The shortened version is that I wanted to have my website reflect more than just my life as an author. I feel that I accomplished that well with version 2.
Version 3 is the here and now. I moved away from Wix since it was slow and honestly, I knew that I could build something that better fit my needs. I used Next.js and Bulma (staples in my personal programming) as well as Typescript to try to see what all the buzz is about. I can see where it would be useful, but honestly it's just okay. 🤷🏾♀️ You can read more about the creation of this version in the post New Year, New Look: Round 2.
Peek Behind the Curtain
The code for the website is available on Github. I am quite proud of how I integrated Iconify and Markdown-It into Next. I enjoy uniformity, so seeing the same style of emojis no matter what device one uses makes me happy. 😊
