I think the world would be a much nicer place if we stop putting people into boxes.

Every day I read about something that one person did, following an attack on a group of people that maybe had one thing in common with the other person.

Please stop generalizing so much. ☮️

Work computer now again running Linux after 8 years on Macbook Pro. Feels refreshing, to be honest.

- Same keyboard layout everywhere ✔️
- Docker needs no VM ✔️
- No painful Xcode updates ✔️

This is barbaric!
The TV is way too low. Needs a stool 🙃

Time to go to bed. I was adding parmesan to our shopping list and wrote “permission” 🥴

I remember joining Twitter for tech news, where I could selectively follow interesting people around the world.

Sadly, the amount of noise, hate and despair is growing and I need a break.

See you folks in a week or so! ♥️

If you're using Github Actions; then you can use this action to set it up (also supports custom versions):

Today's pick: yq (github.com/mikefarah/yq)

Manipulate YAML files through pipes. Exceptionally useful with Kubernetes and CD/CI scripts.

I'll drop a few:

github.com/davidkpiano - Author of xstate who seems to be finding cool projects all the time.
github.com/gaui - Like-minded developer from Iceland. Lots of different stuff.
github.com/developit - Creator of Preact and discoverer of awesome JS libs

Do you follow any people on Github that blow you away every week with starring, or creating a cool project?

Please share!

I am looking for a piece of self-hostable software that would act as a bookmark manager with an RSS *publisher* (not reader!).

What I mean by that is for it to be able to save bookmarks to it, and then use a separate device to read them as an RSS feed.

Anybody heard of anything like that?

Unpopular opinion: Companies should either be fully-remote or fully-on-site.

Does anyone here have multiple game-consoles in the house? Is there some gadget out there that acts like a switch for bluetooth devices?

I would love if I could pair everything to the switch, and then flip a switch between the different consoles and have the controllers working.

Can someone explain to me why Python is sometimes a dependency for code that isn't written in Python?

It looks like it's purely for build-tool purposes in Node.js. I'd love to know more.

I saw Tenet yesterday and boy, what a brain-buster that was. Good movie, well made and even if your brain isn't interested in temporal mechanics, the action scenes are pretty wild.

Any Github Actions super-users here? I sorely miss 'envsubst' for my Kubernetes files. What are people using for k8s templating in CD flows?
