A personal and Java blog, likely only for me

Website updated: at last


I always wanted to have my own website but I don’t have enough skills as web developer to create one from scratch.

I’m a Java EE developer, so I have to work with HTML/CSS/JavaScript/JQuery on a regular basis. But I’m not a web designer. Actually, I’m really bad at designing.

But I love programming and one day I discovered Yeoman (the web’s scaffolding tool for modern webapps, as they claim)

The problem here is the usual when you discover a new tool, suddenly you need to know a lot of related stuff. That is, Node.js, NPM, Grunt, Bower, and a lot of intimidating names.

Youtube to the rescue. Find this video “Yeoman tutorial – Master Front-End Workflow with Yeomaman, Grunt and Bower” and you will have your website up and running in a few minutes.

That’s not totally true. I’ve had to download jpegtran-bin and I’ve spent a lot of time with minor details with some layouts.

Well, it’s been funny to work as web developer by editing my HTML files, testing them locally (with the server created by grunt server) and then uploading the files to the server (after creating a minified site with grunt build)

And here it is: Malsolo website.
