New Dracula Site And Logo

The Dracula site and logo were the same since 2013. I've always wanted to give it a refresh, but I was never able to prioritize it. Now that Dracula PRO exists, I have some funding to invest and the energy to keep improving the open source version even more 😁

New Site

Now that we have 92 different themes, I decided to spend time on discoverability. The new search finds not only by name, but also by synonyms. The new filter helps you see only what matters to you. And the animation is gorgeous (I just wanna click those buttons lol).

Dracula Site

I love Static Site Generators (SSG) since the day I became a web developer. The Dracula site had a long journey, and I feel like now we have a great stack.

  • 2013: Created the site using Jekyll
  • 2016: Migrated from Jekyll to Metalsmith
  • 2020: Migrated from Metalsmith to Next.js

New Logo

Like JavaScript frameworks, design trends come and go. When I first started Dracula, Skeuomorphism was the coolest thing ever, and now it feels outdated. Besides that, the icon library I used was very limited, and I had to re-use the same icons for different themes.

Dracula Logo

This new Detailed Circular Flat style has a modern, simple, clean look. I'm still getting used to the change, but I love the consistency it brings to the entire experience.

Have a great week!
