This is the open source web projects that helped me create my site.
I try and write as much code as possible when building my personal site.
But I'm also extremely grateful that there's some great open source code out there to learn from & get stuff done a bit quicker.
Really nice Responsive Grid System of up to 12 columns, that's super easy to use & cutomise.
I think I've used Light Box by Lokesh Dhakar on all my sites, easy to use. What more could you want!
