Mostly, I decided I just wouldn't re-invent the wheel.
The posts tree
The tags list
Also on the left, the tags list is auto-generated. Individual tag pages are automatically generated using jekyll-tagging.
On the right, we've got posts pulled from my Instagram account, using their soon-to-be-deprecated Instagram API. I have a script which basically generates a Jekyll Collection from the available posts, and then I render that with a simple bit of Liquid.
Probably I'm going to have to do some really annoying data scraping if I want to keep having this work in the future.
Plugins are done in Ruby. I don't like Ruby.
Also, a lot of the URLs have changed, but I'm not sure just how much I care about that. I mean, who would be linking to this site?
