Re-building wolppp.com

I know, it's maybe unnecessary for right know since Wolppp still has few contents and haven't yet acquires many artists to submit their artworks, but this... while pointing to my chest with serious face ... this 'developer mode' (trust me I'm barely a developer) inside of me itch to getting fix some of the unfinished glitches in current version of wolppp.com.

So it's been almost a week or so I try to teach myself some of the things that I never thought I could. Things like Jekyll, javascript, SASS, HTML5 history API, from really scared to even see CLI, now I make all the things with CLI. Now I can bravely says that I can make a Jekyll website, NPM, Grunt, Gulp with browserSync in CLI. I almost want to try MEAN stack and Backbone JS, but since it's looks too complex, I decided to go static solution like Jekyll.

In its relation to Wolppp, mostly the things that haven't implemented yet in Wolppp is now taking shapes. Only few others that I still need to work on.

☑ Solving a current's glitch in modal box preview
☑ Modal box preview with hash URL so user can share specific artwork and go directly to it
☑ Making the page load and browse faster
☑ Easy management without CMS
☐ Serving specific download link for specific device type based on brand, OS and screen resolution

Meanwhile, I really want ported this blog to Jekyll and leave all those wordpress' nitty gritty behind, while on the other side I'm also experimenting with HTML5 Canvas :)
