This website always had a ugly, unfinished, custom backend. I lacked the programming skills to do it the way I wanted, so working on my site was a pain in the ass. Writing on my blog wasn't fun at all!
Was my website doomed?
This week I decided to take action! From now, I will concentrate on what I know best and leave the hardcore programming to others.
- Updated my website to the latest Rails version.
- Replaced the custom backend with BrightContent, a cms developed by Brightin.
- Included the Bourbon gem to simplify my css, no more prefixes.
- Fixed image uploading with paperclip and dropbox.
- Some other small stuff.
Most changes aren't visible at the front-end, but improvements to the backend. To visualize the changes to my website a little, I included a screenshot of the backend.
