  • My website: Responsive images

    Image generation is handled by a custom Astro integration, similar to @astrojs/image, and all images are wrapped in a custom Figure component for richer content and better semantics. The image optimisations are carefully synchronised with the layout. Aspect ratio awareness is mandatory to eliminate CLS.
