« What is Bloggoat?

May 16, 2016 • ☕️ 1 min read

Bloggoat separates into two words— Blog and Goat, which are essentially what this is… a blog. I’ll cover mostly programming, and other technical things I think are cool. This is a wordpress Ghost Gatsby blog so I’ve got a couple plugins running, first is MathJax KaTeX, meaning I can have fancy looking math (inline too{`\\text{inline too}`}):

n=1NN1+3N{`\\sum_{n=1}^{N} N \\cdot 1 + 3^N`}

I’m also using highlight.js prism.js highlight.js for syntax highlighting, which I think looks very nice. It supports modern JS syntax too1:

const {forEach, map} = [];

document.querySelectorAll("*")::forEach(elem => {
    console.log(elem.style.backgroundColor);
});

async function GET(path) {
    return new Promise((y, n) => {
        let r = new XMLHttpRequest();
        r.onreadystatechange = () =>
            (r.readyState === 4 && r.status === 200
              ? y : n)(r);
        r.open("GET", path);
        r.send
    });
}
