Throw All Things Away

About this website

I have an old website which was created using the statics website generator Pelican. But gradually it gets too complicated to maintain because I added to many functions. Then I came across an article This Page is Designed to Last which suggests that the website the lasts longest is the ones which use plain HTML and CSS. I was also impressed by a minimalist website GrimGrains. So I decided to start with a clean slate and build a new and much simpler website with Franklin.jl.

The name of the website comes from a quote by Marcus Aurelius

Throwing away then all things, hold to these only which are few and besides bear in mind that every man lives only this present time, which is an indivisible point, and that all the rest of his life is either past or it is uncertain. [Meditations, III.10.]
