Oh, you just had to ask. Here’s the rundown of the tech that drives this site.
- Nesta CMS: This file-based CMS, written in Ruby on Sinatra, has been a simple joy to work with. Webpage content is just text, why store it in a database? The previous version of this site used Drupal, which we hope we won’t run into again anytime soon.
- Git: All source code, page content, and static media on this site is version controlled with git and is publicly availible on Github.
- Twitter’s Bootstrap: So don’t know about you, but we hate basic CSS layout. It makes us break out in a sweat. Bootstrap takes care of the nitty-gritty for us, and gives us some great eye candy as a bonus.
