I recently set up t0dd.io (a domain that I’ve had for several months, but hadn’t done anything with) to point to my blog. At the same time, I also decided to redesign the layout from scratch.

Being a developer and, therefor, an awful designer, I turned to a toolkit I read about on Hacker News several months back called Roots. Roots is the business because it combines the awesome power of Jade and Stylus into a single toolkit that includes a Rails-like development server/watcher that will automatically render and reload your changes as you save files. It makes prototyping and developing quick and easy.

I’ve open-sourced the Roots project behind this blog. You can check out the source and how easy Roots makes design development on my GitHub.
