This website intends to contribute towards the reduction of the web’s environmental footprint, and thus is designed and developed using low-tech principles. To do this, it was made into a static website. Static websites are thus based on file storage whereas dynamic websites depend on recurrent computation. A static website requires less processing power because it is not dependent on recurrent computation. Static websites consequently require less processing power and thus less energy. The choice for a static site enables the possibility of serving the site in an economic manner and reduce its contribution to digital industry ecological footprint.
In case you were wondering, this site is:
- Designed and coded on a Macbook Pro.
- Coded with Sublime Text.
- Built on Hugo - one of the most popular and fastest open-source static site generators.
- Hosted on Cloudflare - everything you need to build fast, modern websites.
The design and code powering this site, however, is not available for re-use or purchase.
