I haven't published a new article in a while now, but I haven't been twiddling my thumbs. Let's look at what happened behind-the-scenes in the last eight months since my first article.
Supporting Middle-Out in CSS
My first ever talk, given at London Web Standards.
In creating a from-scratch grid for a redevelopment project, I was using Sass to loop through various bits of data to generate a bunch of repetitive CSS, but I realised I had no DRY way of generating a list of unique pairs of items from a given dataset, so I set out to find out how.
Every rose has its thorn. @CodePen just crashed on me for the first time in over a year.
Still using it everyday though. 😄
Throttle back on your scroll events and watch out for the IntersectionObserver!
At my first Homebrew Website Club meetup! Planning how to roll my own micropub endpoint... #hwclondon #indieweb
Added Jeremy Keith’s Canvas Sparklines to my site, to further visually demonstrate the vast spaces of time between my posts! Next step: create less vast spaces of time between my posts (read: publish more).
Drinking coffee out of a sub-standard mug today because some mug has taken my mug!
Rolling my own Micropub server is proving immensely difficult. Way out of my depth. Feels good to learn, albeit slowly, though.
