I've made some updates to the website and I'm glad to share them! There are a few notable changes – the UI/UX has definitely gotten better over the past few months with some minor (which also happens to be my GitHub username) changes that I've made.

Home Page

The first is the usage of animated CSS gradients on the home page. This website is designed with Tailwind CSS so I wasn't quite sure how to do this at first, but then I found a great tutorial online that demonstrates how to create animated gradients. If you want to play around with this code, it is available here: https://play.tailwindcss.com/ksYb5b3yw6. I'm not 100% sure about browser compatibility, but I know it doesn't work on Safari – so there's definitely things that can be better! 😎

I've also updated the dark mode/light mode colors to make the terminal pop out more! Here's a photo of both light/dark modes:

Editor.js

I've been working on utilizing Editor.js to create not just an editor but also a simple light-weight notes application. It's not 100% done yet, and probably won't be for a while, but I'll post an update once it is!
