Skinny Guardian was initially an experiment in getting Jekyll to publish a static site using external data, while producing a paper that I would find easy to read online. As I’m not particularly interested in US or Australian articles, I filtered them out.
The real challenge was figuring out a site structure and navigation that:
- allows you to easily choose an edition
- makes it clear which edition the article you’re reading belongs in
- presents a home page that lists articles rather than a choice of editions
- uses space efficiently on a mobile
I think the flag navigation and choice of a default, UK edition works well. If you’ve got any feedback, just leave a comment.
