Switching to Jekyll

First post!

Today I updated chiya.dev to be completely static. It is now serving simple, plain HTML web pages generated using Jekyll.

Before this change, I was running a custom React website that presented a responsive landing page with some social links. It was unnecessarily slow and Javascript-heavy for a landing page.

Jekyll is customizable and has a wide range of themes, so it was an easy choice for a quick and simple website like this one. This website is running a slightly customized Hyde theme. Plus, built-in support for blogging is pretty nice.

Now that I have a blog, I will occasionally post here if I feel like writing stuff.
