My name is Andrew Burleson.

I'm an urbanist, creative professional, and full-stack web developer. I'm an engineering lead at Citrusbyte, where I lead a team that builds Ruby and Javascript apps for the web. I live in Raleigh, NC. Here are some of the interesting things I've worked on, and the places you can find me on the web:


A minimal, headless, rich text editor for Javascript. This is really awesome for any situation where you need many rich text fields on a page and want a custom UI (for instance, a single toolbar) to control them all. It also gives you total control over what formatting is allowed in the text fields, and a large degree of control over the resulting markup.
A logic-less templating engine for Javascript that enables simple one-pass rendering with two-way bindings, by converting your templates into real dom elements on the fly. IE: no string concatenation here.
A really nice promise-based AJAX request interface. Simple and awesome.
A community-driven site for finding and sharing interesting places and learning about what makes them work. Interested in how some of it works? Here's a code-sample.
A simple tool for measuring distances and areas from Google Maps. A quick prototype, but fairly useful.
A database of things that people who care about cities would find interesting.
A CSS / JS framework that I use for all my projects, meant to be more of a "railsy" alternative to twitter bootstrap.

Community Involement

A national organization advocating a model of growth that allows America's places to grow financially strong and resilient. As of October 2014, I'm honored to serve on the board of directors.
A national movement for sustainable development, which I'm a supporter of.
