Made a link-aware progressive disclosure javascript https://gist.github.com/kartikprabhu/45528a06915ac2d92b1ec83084b31b84 It is adapted from the one by @adactio ( https://adactio.com/journal/10365 ), but added a few things so that if the URL links to a part of the page that can be hidden (using a fragment or fragmention) then that content is not hidden by default. Compare https://kartikprabhu.com/papers vs https://kartikprabhu.com/papers#coframes%20at%20fixed%20connection I had to change a few things in fragmention.js for this to work though https://github.com/kartikprabhu/fragmentions/commit/30e8f7633fcafdf68370aeb525760609b4f22849

Placeholder Images

The size of my images changes fluidly with my responsive layout. Since the browser does not know their heights a priori, the space collapses while the images are still loading. Once the images load the entire page reflows and the rest of the content jumps around to make space for them. It would be much better if the space for the images was reserved from the start and, as a bonus, if some lower resolution version of the images displayed, while the images load. Here is how I do it.
