As light return again so does the need to organize and clean up some things on the site. I have fallen a bit behind on my plans lately, and it is time to get back to doing again. I am in a good place when it comes to work, with just some minor things to fix, and I feel that this is now a good time to get the site back in progress again.
The first thing to do is the same as last year pretty much and that is to clean up the templates. I will need to take inventory and really clean things out. There are some CSS and JS things that need to be merged together to make it more clear what goes where.
The second thing I need to do is move over the latest updates to My Tasks from my Beta site and then do a full reset on that. I will use that as my main development area going forward instead of messing around with the live site. The Beta site will be closed off as well and setup for some hard core coding, so I can start exploring some new stuff.
My Tasks also need some love as it is a bit wonky right now, and it needs additions of a cookie toggle that allow the views to be switched properly. It also needs to update the fields a bit because right now the solution reset some fields in detail view, which is not very good. It works well enough though, so I'll dig into it later.
The start page is still a pain point for me because it does not look the way I want. I aim to recreate the Sketch files I have for the site into Figma and then start working on a new start page. I have a design in my head, so I just need to get it out to see if it works in reality as well. I also have some clean up to do for My Projects and Awesome People that I will do when time permits.
Speaking of My Projects I have an idea to build a special page for one or two projects. These will be more elaborate Case type of projects that will explain in more detail how I work and what I can do. I have an idea about using a PowerPoint I once did as base for the story I want to tell.
The My Story section is an area I want to build something different for as well. Right now it is pretty barren, and I have some thoughts on how to build that section. I want it to be a section that can be really me, where I can collect all the sections and bring them together. A place where I can place things that does not really fit the other areas, if that makes sense.
So, let the spring cleaning start with Project Purgo!
