Over the past couple of months, I’ve been learning how to not be a perfectionist; and how to enjoy the process of just doing things, experimenting, and not stressing to finish things quickly.
One thing I’ve been wanting to do for a while now is come up with a new look for my minimalistic website at alchemist.digital, which serves as my personal portfolio and blog.
A bit ago I managed to acquire binary.run. I think it has a catchier ring to it than alchemist.digital, and I decided to move my personal websites over to it.
The name alone gives me really big 80s nostalgia vibes, and since I do all of my code editing in Visual Studio Code with the Synthwave 84′ theme, I decided why not make that the ultimate theme of my website?
Binary_Nights is the name I came up with to describe my Synthwave / Vaporwave inspired custom WordPress theme.
Drawing inspiration from 80s nostalgia and retrofuturism, this theme will be as rad as a DeLorean DMC-12 racing against a Kawasaki GPz900R while being chased by a Dodge M4S. It will fulfill all the needs of fingerless glove wearing, sleeveless jacket sporting, terminal time hacking, mullet possessing, mustachioed individuals everywhere.
All work for this theme can be found at my GitLab:
Rather than build the entire theme up from scratch like I did with my Alchemist theme for alchemist.digital, I’m using the GPLv3 licensed Esotera theme from Cryout Creations, Srl as a base.
