Hello, this is your monthly form reminder:
- inputs need a label
- labels need a for and inputs and ID to link them together
- placeholder are NOT mandatory, if it looks like label: "name" placeholder: "enter your name here" I'm 99,99% sure you don't need a placeholder

We live in world where men assaulting women is acceptable, but boobs are considered offensive even in the context of breastfeeding. Nothing makes sense to me.

@zladuric The idea is that people with assistive tech don’t want to get a special version of the website. This may very well be a dumbed down version based on (false or ill informed) assumptions. That’s why I think it’s not possible to detect. I want to detect screenreaders because I making a tool where I ask people who use screenreaders if a certain string sounds like giggling. I would like to prefill as many form fields as possible, like OS, screenreader and voice in use.

Also on the topic of modals, I'm looking for an example of modal inception I could use in a talk (on UI design so more modals in a dashboard than newsletter subscription). Any exemple of a product (or framework) where this happens?

as long as you understand what someone is trying to communicate, don't correct people's grammar/spelling tbh

(and even then, don't correct them, just ask them for clarification)

being so caught up on things like that are not only so incredibly unimportant, but can be read as classist or ableist.

Hey #Fediverse #Sysadmin #Webdev what is the best (simple but powerful) static site generator you would suggest me to try?

I have played with Hugo and Jekyll, and I feel they're a bit on the heavy/complicated side. Any more lightweight options?

Thanks!

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

I need some FLOSS spread sheet software. I want it to be simple and pretty and hopefully cross platform. Really just need simple tables but would like to at least do sums as well. Any recs?

TIL: sed doesn't let you use + in regular expressions by default.

You have to enable "extended RE" with -r. Except that it's -E on MacOS X and BSD.

Colleague 1: Why don't you use perl?

Collegue 2: Why don't you use yarn?

So I learned that yarn has a beautiful version command:
yarnpkg.com/lang/en/docs/cli/v - updating minor and major versions for you, with git tags.
