Codsen is an amalgamation of "Code" and "Send" — meaning skill in both web and email development.

This website is static and follows Indiewebopens in a new tab principles:

  • We own our data, and it's open-sourced — for example, we won't post Medium — and our "Now" column and RSS are our Twitter.
  • We bring our tooling to client work — for example, detergent or email-comb — that's selfdogfooding. By the way, string-strip-html is powering multiple Nunjucks filters here — we didn't expect that but it became handy on this website!
  • We believe in choosing a right tool for a job — no matter is it a client project or a pet project — for example, we won't switch Detergent.ioopens in a new tab from vanilla JS to React/Redux only to practice it — visitor experience is more important!
  • We believe static websites can still be data-driven — this website consumes a dozen external data sources — without Gatsby or Contentful — only HTML and CSS and a bit of vanilla JS!
  • We believe in plurality — we moved away from GitHub, GitLab is our place now.
