Bits / 2019 / Silver Medal Rebuild Craft Roulette


Craft Roulette is a tiny site I released in 2011. I threw it together in a week and haven’t really done much with it since. Every year I say I’ll work on it, so 2019 seems as good a time as any.

Things I’d like to do:

  1. Rebuild the site using a modern framework instead of my own PHP framework.
  2. Rebuild the blog to use Jekyll instead of WordPress. It really doesn’t need to be more than a few static pages.
  3. Make it easier to add new crafts
  4. Make it mobile friendly

It’s not a high priority, but I’d really like the site to reach some of its potential.
