seeing a lot of talk on the fediverse, maybe just because of following folks on merveilles, about "hand-crafted [web] sites" - and i really wonder what that means

as in, i get the impulse to use open platforms, simple tools, etc - but it feels like "hand-crafted" is doing a lot of work in obfuscating tool choice and development.

in some cases people are definitely making their own static site generators/cmses, but a it of us are not

@anarchivist I wrote my own themes, except Academic for my ruthtillman site, but I definitely didn’t write Hugo.

@anarchivist I use it in the context of I write the code in a text editor and then uploaded it to a server and then hit refresh.

Other people might have different permutations.
