Migrating a WordPress Site to JAMStack
I've been working with Gridsome and VueJS for a few hobby projects throughout 2019, and was quite impressed with what JAMstacks offered. It intrigued the systematic side of me; the one which is always looking for efficiency, for the next big thing which bridges upcoming and established platforms and produces a user experience like no other. Having always resented the (truthfully, well developed) WordPress editors (both new and classic), the concept of writing blog posts in Markdown and having them compiled to a static website seemed incredibly modern. Imagine blogging without ever having to leave your editor (assuming you're confident in your spelling of course for this example!), and a commit taking that little markdown file to your published blog in such a way that you can't help but say grin in aw.Link

Extending Traversey Media’s VueJS Crash Course
After completing the two hour VueJS crash course, I felt the wanting to extend the functionality to include an edit, and details view. Furthermore, I wanted to integrate a new CSS framework as well to give the project a coherent and modern look -gasp, without using my framework of choice: Bulma? Well I want to learn something new, evaluate a skeleton (minimalist) framework. For this little addition, I was considering using a heavyweight framework such as Formantic UI (a community fork of Semantic UI), but instead landed on the minimalist framework Milligram. For this article, due to work also keeping me incredibly busy on top of other obligations, I opted to split up the two (styling vs functionality) with this article targeting the former. Without further ado, let’s talk about enhancing the experience.Link
