I really like the new layout & theme, much cleaner looking!

A while ago, yt-project.org was converted to a "generated" site. Templates are used to generate each page, so it's much easier to modify. I've also moved the calculation of contributors into a function, and the gallery and the members list are in .yaml files, so they can be updated without writing raw HTML.
I took some time this week to experiment a bit with the website. My fork is here:
and a build is here:
The big changes:
- Light instead of dark background ("cyborg" theme to "flatly")
- Made the text more normal-sized most places
- Changed the masthead on the front page to *not* be a carousel and have
the new logo, along with a more punchy intro
- Added a set of "examples", which come from a .yaml file.
I've been experimenting with the examples and the theme in particular, and I personally like it a lot more.
If you fork my repo and make changes (especially if you want to add examples, which can take *either* text output *or* images) as soon as the changes go in, it auto-builds on matt-website.hub.yt . Feedback here or on slack would be very much appreciated, and if folks like it, I'd like to deploy it.
A few other things it would need before it's ready:
- Add an extensions page, with extension information drawn from .yaml file
- Make the blog look like this thing, and maybe figure out if the blog
could be part of the repo
- Update the text and images wherever appropriate (i.e., update
references to the hub)
- Streamline navigation a little bit
- Fill out the examples, maybe even have them link to the hub
