I've been meaning to give this place a tidy up and a refresh for quite some time now. However, not being particularly skilled in the arts of web development I have been putting it off until I could no longer deal with it.
The site used to have a somewhat modified pelican-bootstrap3 theme which came with an awful lot of cruft. Loads of unused CSS and class decelerations, unneeded
<div>s all over the place, it was a mess.
Now the site is working better than ever. Search works properly, same with the books list and loading is near instant.
And in a few years I will do it all again.
