OMG TRENDING YAY! This is a kewl little website (and my personal portfolio) that has a very quirky “setup” if you will. Consider checking it out:

A Frontend Developer’s Website? [CSS Code Injecting Website!]

Check out the website in fullscreen here

Hiya, it’s Ray! Recently I signed up (or in other words created a pull request) to get a .is-a.dev subdomain. I really wanted a personal website with a kewl domain hack, but this seemed to be an even better option!

While I was creating my website, I realized Dang, how lame. Static websites are just so reused and there isn’t much special about nav-bars, pagination, and whatnot. I really wanted my website to be unique and quirky, yet still reflect me in some way.

That’s when I stumbled across pen#PwLXXP, an interesting website that injects it’s CSS character by character into a style tag. Of course it was written in CoffeeScript so I decided to transpile it back into Javascript! It was pretty easy and after revising the code some bit, I felt really proud of how the site worked. I also used my new REPLAPI.it package (coming out later this week after I finish documentation!) to get some of my profile data and template that with EJS.

The end product is really amazing and I absolutely love it! I’m still adding more stuff but I decided to publish it because I really like it! I should be getting a subdomain later this week, but for now I named my repl its because it sounds awfully nice to say! Ciao.

Update: YAY I got my domain! https://ray.is-a.dev

well I found that fetch info from GraphQL was tricky that day so sometimes it had a data in data but not data in data.profile and sometimes data in data.profile but not data.comments do you follow?

so, sometimes you had data in one section or another, but not all of them. Okay, that I can understand, but what I don't understand is how all assignments to data were objects, so it could never become undefined :/ Is there something that I overlooked?
