My name is Efstathios Stivaros and I'm a Ruby on Rails developer. This blog, while inactive, was built on Rails with a helping hand from Bootstrap and jQuery.

I decided to use a clean, minimalistic aesthetic and set about writing the CSS myself. While Bootstrap is active, it is used to provide structure more than style.

jQuery is used for two major functions:

  1. To enable the navigation to scroll for a bit before sticking to the top of the page.
  2. To automatically detect and resize the textarea as an article is typed.

You can find the code for this blog on Github, hopefully it will provide you with some inspiration for your own projects.
