This is a list of people, resources and tools that have made this site what it is. Check back regularly, as I try to keep this up-to-date, when I get time.

Design

Development

This site is built using Next.js, written in TypeScript, hosted on Vercel, the content and data is pulled from Contentful, Spotify and Last.fm. Source Code

  • Dan Eden inspired me to build the site using Next.js, in Typescript.

  • This tutorial from Martin helped a lot getting Contentful working in Typescript.

  • Lee Robinson’s approach to grabbing Spotify data was super clear and helpful.

  • This repo helped out a lot with wrangling footnotes from Contentful Rich Text fields.

  • Emilio Schepis has an incredibly simple way to add an RSS feed to a next.js site

Typography

I use the following fonts on this site:

  • Blanco from Foster Type is mostly used as body copy, and some headings.

  • GT America Extended from Grilli Type is used primarily for larger headings.

  • Pitch from Klim is used for smaller text as well as numeric data.
