Setting up a simple blog

While many static site generators will output beautiful blogs from markdown files, the main problem is that they often require installing the toolchains and learning the frameworks.

The easiest way to reproduce this website is to inspect the source code.

This style of this blog is called Tufte CSS. The HTML document needs to be formed using specific tags, similar to writing content in markdown files. This website demonstrates and describes the features of Tufte CSS.
