Finally I need a CSS grid. Here is my intro to it. If you prefer a video this one (28 minutes) explains grid basics very well. But before learning CSS grid, I need to answer the question if I need it. I know flexbox quite ok, so why not use flexbox.
Lately I am coming a across a couple of those tools that promise to remove the bundling overhead and pain from our projects. I already mentioned snowpack.
I posted the following on reddit, finding out that the bot does not permit it. Read how I discovered reddit, finally.
A disclosure widget is a simple control whose sole purpose is to hide or show stuff.
See his article for very in depth content on how to use
With latest privacy awareness I believe cookies are also one sensitive topic. I have no numbers, but I guess there are more people who have cookies disabled then we believe. If not, I learned something here.
@Peter Coles wrote "HTTP Cookies: What's the difference between Max-age and Expires?" in 2009, but he has updated the article later and there is the answer for wether to use "expires" and/or "max-age" when you set cookies.
I wish to have a type system where I only need to type-hint the published parts (of a module/file) and let the type system infer all internal types. Though, I learned that even in Haskell land it is referred to as good practice to still type every function, no matter if public or private. Flow sounds to be doing what I want.

See it in use, here is the commit I just made for this site. Look at the bottom right or top left on smaller screens. found at https://www.abeautifulsite.net/the-unicode-character-for-menu-icons
It is a bit more than a month ago that WebStorm has shipped the feature Displaying terminal sessions side by side and I am using it every day now.
Since QuickTime on Mac is great for short screen recordings, but the web can handle animated
gifs better, I need https://cloudconvert.com/mov-to-gif it's a simple and awesome service!
Pricing: "absolutely free for up to 25 conversions per day", totally cool. Thanks!
TypeScript 3.9 was released. Since I am basically a fan of making code safer and better to understand, that's what I use types for, I see nothing interesting to me in this release. But I also use TypeScript in a much simpler way than the cracks and fans. https://devblogs.microsoft.com/typescript/announcing-typescript-3-9/
I wanted to
scriptNode.cloneNode(true) and expected it to re-evaluate the JS
of the node, but it didn't.
First search result for "CSS reset" is by the mighty Eric Meyer https://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/css/reset/ from quite some time ago. And looking up the source of his site I see the reset is not really included, also no modified version as far as I saw it. Next I came across https://cssreset.com/what-is-a-css-reset/ which nicely explains the whys and also states the cons. Unfortunately the latter article is missing a date, so I can't say how old this knowledge is. That's why I was so very keen on having all items properly dated on my blog.
The things I took away for me until now, while I am still reading the book:
Bundler like webpack take up too much of our intention, imho. We spend a lot of time configuring them and waiting for them to build so we can see our site. Snowpack moves the bundler out of the way so you can develop without worrying about it locally.
In October 17, 1990 IMDb started as a unix script.
December 25, 1990 Tim Berners-Lee releases WorldWideWeb (later Nexus) on Christmas day, the first ever browser for the web.
August 6, 1991 Tim Berners-Lee responding to a thread on the alt.hypertext Usenet newsgroup, publicly announces the World Wide Web project for the first time. The History of the Web has so interesting stuff. Very worth a read. A great site to spend a lot of time on.
Brutalist Web Design seems quite aligned with Accessibility. The chapters of the guidelines are:
I was just filtering a list
and I only wanted the first element in case there is one.
list.filter(someCondition) fails when the filtered list
is empty. So I am using
slice(0, 1), which returns the first element
if there is one, an empty list otherwise.
Now I do
list.filter(someCondition).slice(0, 1) and never
Such small things.
WebStorm has this awesome feature they call Live Templates
where you can configure a text in a certain filetype to autocomplete
to something, even dynamic. See how I built the auto-completion for
dateC which becomes
dateCreated: 2020-05-02 15:27 CET, which is current date of course, in my custom format.
