I've been working on some new features and changes for this blog.
The State of Gatsby
Ultimately, it doesn't matter as long as it's still the right tool for the job. Gatsby is still being maintained and updated regularly and does almost everything I need.
I've removed the following three categories on the site and moved their posts:
- Review: The items I was reviewing were from other categories.
- Hacking: Similar to the above.
- Privacy: Posts moved to the Security category.
In there place, I've made three new categories:
Time to Read
A time to read indicator is now shown at the top of each post next to its date. This information has always been available but I chose to hide it.
Floating Table of Contents
On larger screens, there is now a floating table of contents on the right-hand side. This is helpful on some of my larger posts. I plan to add an indicator to track the active heading/section.
Smooth scrolling has been implemented to beautifully jump between anchor points. See it in action in the video below:
Page Progress Indicator
Lastly, I've implemented a page progress indicator top the top of each blog post. The red colour matches my favicon.
