# Introduction

The last time I redesigned my website was 2020 (see this post). It was mainly engineering and cosmetic (moving away from Jekyll to Eleventy, making the site look a bit nicer). Now I want to do a bit more with it: not so much a redesign, but rather a recontextualisation. What do I want my site to be and do?

The site has evolved a lot over time since 2016 (six years ago at this point!)

I want people to be able to discover my website with a Ctrl-K input, something like Notion, or the full text search in Visual Studio Code Ctrl-Shift-F. Ideally they should be able to discover all the tags as well

This is the kind of search I'm looking for:

https://github.com/jethrokuan/braindump I think it's built into his template so he didn't have to implement

I really like Monocle, this is almost exactly what I want
