New webpage! What can it do?


Posts in Hugo are written in Markdown, and MathJax should be enabled by default, so LaTeX should get rendered:

$$ \ln \mathcal{L}(\theta) = -N \ln \sqrt{2 \pi \sigma^2} - \frac{1}{2\sigma^2} \sum_{i=1}^N \Big(y_i - \mathcal{M}(\theta, i)\Big)^2 , $$

although I can’t get inline math mode to render: $x = \frac{1}{2}$ yet.

Using Font Awesome

Markdown supports html-code blocks, so we can take advantage of the state-of-the-art web-design features.

  • Font Awesome provides free, clean, and beautiful icon set
  • Even though the icon set is mainly for web-design...
  • ... it has some academic icons as well
  • and it even supports animated icons!

Interactive figures

With plotly, plugging in interactive visualizations has never been easier! Plotly itself is a high-level graphical library built around D3.js, a modern and fast data visualization library. One day I will learn JavaScript - so far I’ve just written the figure below in Python-based plotly wrapper.

Plotly seems to take its sweet time loading, so for figures that don’t need to be three-dimensional I should probably just stick to bokeh.
