About This Website

The core website was created entirely from scratch without the use of any templates. However, there are many open source Javascript tools, tutorials, and image sources that deserve credit for contributing to easing the creation of this website. I have compiled the following list. All of the resources listed here can be seen used throughout the site.

Latest release changes to the website can be viewed here.
