Href huntin’ by Andreas Zwinkau
A few days ago, there was a thread on the link-sharing site Lobste.rs entitled: “What are your favorite personal websites around the internet?” So this was a great thread for href hunting. In fact, commenter ‘qznc’ dropped a link to /r/SpartanWeb—a subreddit collecting custom personal websites. qnzc is Andreas Zwinkau.
Andreas’ term “Spartan Web” indicates websites that are:
- Non-commercial. Amateurs, hobbyists, nerds.
- Less than 1MB. Unless it’s illustrations, photos.
- Possibly hand-written HTML and CSS.
Interestingly, I’ve seen a bunch of recent articles praising HTML and attempting to foment a return to HTML. Writing HTML in HTML—someone who started a new blog without any type of an ‘engine’ or static site generator—it’s all just custom HTML. Words and Buttons Online, a directory-style personal page.
