Bookmarked: 'Was it easier to build websites a decade ago? | Go Make Things'

This week, Tim McNamara tweeted: Why is it harder to make a website in 2021 than it was in 1996? I mean, writing your own HTML in Notepad and uploading it via FTP was a chore. But it was understandable and easy. If you want to create a fanpage of some obscure topic, everything is just … too much.

Was it easier to build websites a decade ago? | Go Make Things

Super agree. Modern web development is built to help companies build large applications. You don't have to use those same tools for personal or smaller sites.

The platform has gotten better over the years and tooling use gotten more complex. That's why use the platform is the approach I prefer.
