Well, a fella that made a site with a cc-by github repo.
So I used the vast majority of his site to make mine.
In the last few months he's removed the CC licence and added this to his readme:
"open as a learning resource, but this is not a template. You're free to re-use parts of this codebase in your own site, with attribution. Just don't copy the entire thing, replace the content and publish it. You know - be nice about it."
Looks like I've got some work to do on my website :/
