About this site

This site is powered by vanilla-rb, a software experiment of mine. I think it’s pretty neat.

Basically it’s an attempt to make a site in a homoiconic way, i.e. where the lines between content and structure blur as much as possible. Pretty much everything is composed from fundamental building blocks called snips, which can evaluate as either content, or processing, or a mixture of both.

It might not work, but it’s an interesting experiment. I wrote a blog post about it, which might be of interest.
