Why and how I have just redesigned my (other) website

Going through a moment of change in my life, I have decided to redesign my other website, using Pelican and other open source tools. The older version was starting to look a bit aged, especially on mobile devices, so it seemed like a good idea to start a complete makeover. As they use to say, new year… new website.

New year

New year

From today onwards, I won’t be parking my bicycle every morning in front of Promais anymore. I had 11 unforgettable years, always surrounded by amazing costumers and friends. Now, there are new challenges in the horizon. For the first time in my lifetime, I can say: new year, new life!

See you soon!

This version has some useful new features. It was tested in a wide range on environments and, for the first time, it is now available on PyPI, which means you can just pip install it as any other Python package.
