I created a new custom Wintersmith template called Milchglas for this site (Wintersmith is a great and flexible static site generator, which I use for this blog)
The new template is based on my previous Snowboot - template but is compatible with Wintersmith version 2.0.*. It has some additional features like paging on article pages, further readings, a tag- and timebased index and pays more attention to SEO-stuff and page speed.
Using Wintersmith and optimized Milchglas this site scores
- ~ 97 out of 100 on Make the Web Faster's - GooglePage Speed. Note that some adjustments like caching, compression, charsets must be set on your server (for example in .htaccess, if you're site is on Apache). HTML5-Bolierplate has some handy configuration blocks you might want to use for that. Sacrificing image scaling to target multiple resolution would give you another 3 points to get 100 out of 100.
- ~ 98% on SEO-Doctor
Since the whole thing is, well, static and lean, it loads quite fast on mobile devices.
This template uses some lovely SVG-Icons licensed from ikonome1 and nice and clean pure-css to base its styles on. A little template-scripting provides the additional features and a couple of media-queries make it (hopefully) adapt well to mobile devices (this still needs testing though).
1 due to licensing terms I'm not allowed to include the icons on GitHub.
