I finally finished converting my site entirely into Laravel 5.

In addition, I've started using a bunch of awesome packages:

  • Parsedown (all blog posts are written in Markdown now)
  • SimpleImage to resize photos
  • Highlight.js for syntax highlighting in blog posts (see the previous post)
  • Dropzone for drag and drop photo uploads (in my private admin section)
  • Font Awesome for scalable icons in a bunch of places
  • Bower to manage all of those front-end dependencies and keep my repository clean

I've also done some major redesign, the most noticeable ones being the homepage and photography pages. Photos now scale to fit your window. As a result I decided to increase the quality of the photos as well, from 800 pixels wide to 1600.
