...especially reflow of that grid. Needs a better stagger, though.

I finally got around to watching Edward Faulkner at EmberConf youtube.com/watch?v=4JofVQ3nGr and those look like relative animations to me, with their additive nature abstracted out, which is wonderful.

It’s so great writing something other than javascript.

Concepts I took for granted in Core Animation, like the separation of discrete and animated values, just aren’t present. For instance an “underlying value” can include animation, so I am struggling with issues like this: dbaron.org/css/test/2015/trans

I’ll submit a patch to Mozilla soon, despite the likelihood of rejection. But my experiments have sent me down the rabbit hole of web standards. It may not be the most informed opinion, but I wish animation had less influence over layout.

KeyframeEffect.composite mode “relative” also won’t work in any browser except mine. Using Web-Animations one can manually construct relative animations, but automatic conversion was needed to create transition-interrupt, as it was with OS X view animation

The longhand and mixed formats degrade nicely (purple and blue)

This won’t work in any browser except the build on my machine, and I have not yet uploaded a patch:
red: transition:transform 1.0s ease-in-out regular;
green: transition:transform 1.0s ease-in-out special;
purple: transition-interrupt: special;
blue: mixed

I have successfully added to Firefox (a local development copy on my machine only) a new CSS property, “transition-interrupt:special”, and a new Web-Animations property, “KeyframeEffect.composite:relative”. It is still proof of concept and unfinished, but worth celebrating.

I was informed on another platform that I am wrong

In the future, the syntax of all programming languages will have converged. Except for Lisp.

The best site on the web: facemark.jp/facemark.htm

I have successfully added a non-functional (logging only) CSS Transition property to Firefox that I hope will soon be functional.

If you’re not careful, dust bunnies will evolve into something much more fearsome

Backstage at the Late Show with David Letterman, roaming the halls of CBS, I regret not telling the guest Chuck Schumer as he passed by, “Thank you, Senator, for supporting BOFA”.

This is one of my favorite XY plotter designs. I never uploaded it to kevindoughty.github.io/svg because of a bug I never fixed (lines are drawn over in some places)

“Through fire and water, from the lowest dungeon to the highest peak, I fought with the Balrog of Morgoth, until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountainside.”

I wish it were easier to manage who appears in my federated timeline by knowing who I follow that follows each person.

My plan for XYPlotting is to apply the summation series I call “The Most Famous Curve” to basically every Desmos graph I can find desmos.com/calculator/qo5pbzoh
