  1. ↩️ In reply to Playing music on the web by Neil Mather
    ✍️ I’ve been using Odesli https://odesli.co (formerly Songlink) for a bit of time now, and although I haven’t heard any feedback about it, provides links out to multiple platforms like I...

  1. ↩️ In reply to Justin Avery
    ✍️ I’d consider myself a beginner; I found it very approachable, and it strengthened my core JS knowledge, making me more confident to explore more advanced topics. I think it’s best...
  2. ↩️ In reply to Andy Bell
    ✍️ I’ve been thinking about this ever since you posted it, and this realisation resonates really strongly with me. Coding is a means to an end for me now, rather than...
  3. ✍️ Interesting. Everyone who insists I should be more involved and interested in politics seems to have a very specific context they want me to get involved in. Almost like they...
  4. ✍️ Shout-out to @codefundio (https://codefund.io) for their fantastic service and above-and-beyond team. I cannot state strongly enough how kind and understanding they are—they get the highest possible recommendation from me!
  5. ↩️ In reply to a previous note
    ✍️ I think I’m going to try to make this happen. For a long time I have been building my site on a mostly vanilla Jekyll set-up as an example of...
  6. ✍️ I would love to try switching my site from @jekyllrb onto @eleven_ty, but it looks like such a huge undertaking, as I have heavily customised the way I use Jekyll...
  7. ✍️ Another 🐇 🕳 idea… Input a YouTube channel URL → The channel’s Atom feed is added to your Microsub “YouTube” channel. YouTube subscriptions without a Google account. No idea how...
  8. ↩️ In reply to Bridging the Indieweb and the Fediverse with Bridgy Fed, part 1 by Neil Mather
    ✍️ Neil, this is both remarkably well-written and informative! I have to agree with all the points you’ve raised, particularly about the high barrier to entry for non-technical folks wanting to...
  9. ↩️ In reply to Ana Rodrigues
    ✍️ I definitely have improvements to make, but at present I use the Twitter API to create a tweet, and I pull the URL of the tweet from the response into...
  10. ↩️ In reply to Jacky Alciné
    ✍️ That’s totally fair—I think development can and should be a joy wherever possible! I don’t think that strict adherence to a standard trumps happiness—I think the opposite—but I do often...
  11. ✍️ I still fail to see what benefits arise from shortened variable names. Why is “currPag” preferable to “currentPage”, “btn” preferable to “button”? Without context, I’m guessing what the author intended...
  12. ↩️ In reply to Dom Patmore
    ✍️ I find the non-self-hosted version of @1Password really clean and easy to use on both my laptop and phone. Although it’s not free, I don’t mind paying a bit for...

  1. 😔 Didn’t go to Homebrew Website Club London
    ✍️ 📅 Sadly, I won’t be able to attend, but if you’ve ever been curious about content ownership, IndieWeb, or new ways to tinker on your website, Homebrew Website Club London is...
  2. ✍️ Couldn’t be happier with how #SotB18 turned out this year. It was an honour and a pleasure to be involved in organising such an incredible event. Massive thanks to all... 📍 at Conway Hall
