A Lazy Sequence


This is the fifth version of brehaut.net, now titled A Lazy Sequence. It is written in Typescript using a small grab-bag of libraries, but mostly a lot of custom craziness. Content is all stored in PostgreSQL. Version control with Mercurial.

Everything is set in HK Grotesk by Hanken Design Co, except for code which is in Anonymous Pro by Mark Simonson. I previously used Typekit, now Adobe Fonts, to license and host the fonts for this site. As of March 2019 I’ve opted to only use fonts that I can host on my own server; this should mean that there are no third party trackers when you visit.

Source code snippets are syntax highlighted using mangled versions of the Syntax Highlighter scripts from Alex Gorbatchev. I don’t recommend the project these days. A custom script manages loading the highlighter and it’s relevant language modes.

I was listening to a lot of Toby Arrives by the Koch Marshall Trio, and Currents, Constellations by The Nels Cline 4 while working the backend.

Laugh at the weird nonsense that existed here previously.
