I launched this website in 2009, initially as a personal blog, before later expanding it to include a professional portfolio. Throughout the years, I have explored different publishing platforms: from WordPress and OpenScholar to hand-written HTML. My journey led me to adopt the static website generator: blogdown, driven by Hugo.
This page lists the tools I use to build the site today. The entire stack is free and open source, and can be found on GitHub. The source code for this site itself is available at https://github.com/nanxstats/nanx.me.
