Share your Quarto blog ✨

Here is mine! I recently migrated it from an older version of nbdev.

There are a few posts I’m still working on migrating. Hoping to have a fresh post up tomorrow as well.

And I’ve completed my new website! Uses quite a few Quarto features too, from tab sets to CSS grids to margin headers and much more!

The landing page features a dynamic dual listing: one listing shows my blog posts while the other listing shows my web apps. Making the window smaller stacks the lists instead. And for the web apps, I’ve embedded the ones I’ve created with Gradio and hosted on Huggingface, so I don’t need to learn JavaScript for the time being. The about me page features tab sets to reduce clutter too.

I plan to add more features in the future, mainly through Quarto extensions, such as a scroll-to-the-top button, text animations, and image lightboxes — the latter which I plan to use when I shift my 3D CG works to my website.

Quarto is cool! :smile:

A quick backstory:

  • I was inspired by this post which encouraged me to create a blog!
  • I had this strange unpleasant mindsets around “personal branding”, and yet again came this post that changed my perceptions around it!
  • I had heard about fastpages and was ready to set up my blog on it!
  • I then discovered this thread on the forums and got to know about Quarto.
  • Finally, I went on and built it. It was an amazing experience.

Here it is.

I kept it simple sort of inspired by the fast.ai website.

I am experimenting with colours and stuff. I read somewhere that it is a forbidden to have a non-white background :grimacing:! Is it :sweat_smile: ?! If I change it, I will definitely keep a dark theme background. Any tips/advice is appreciated.

Turns out we can build whatever we want in it- presentations, books, and what not! Quarto is very dynamic and gives a lot of flexibility and power. I really love the feature of converting NBs directly into a blog.

Finally, I am trying to adopt practices mentioned in this post to write better blog posts.

@theaeonwanderer and @wgpubs I noticed that there are no RSS feeds on your blogs. This confused me as well. Seems that Quarto default to not offering an RSS feed for sites created there, so you have to enable it manually. This commit shows the things you have to do:

  • set an explicit site-url
  • add feed: true to the index.qmd
  • (nice to have but not essential): add an RSS button to your navbar

I have started my blog specifically for the 2022 edition of the Fast.AI course. As it turned out, creating the blog was one of the sub-projects which emerged from the course. I also summed up my experience/learnings with my Quarto blog in these posts:
