Wow @Netlify is as easy as everyone says. I switched five of my sites over in four minutes. Didn't even need to read docs, the UI walked me through it. Gonna be my go-to for static sites going forward! HT @marktnoonan @nullvoxpopuli

discussion with a dev today .. they wanted to run in a pre-commit hook.

i dislike the idea of committing code that hasn't been tested.

if a pre-commit runs prettier, changes the code to make it more beautiful, then it gets committed, then that commit contains untested code.

im sure in general prettier probably wont break stuff but it feels wrong to advocate it's use in a pre-commit like that.

better alternatives are prettier on save or a prettier && test script

what are your thoughts?

I truly believe that (the protocol behind ) has the potential to redefine the way we create and connect on the internet. But to get there, we need to spread the word - a network is only as valuable as the people in it.

I want to get that ball rolling - I wrote a blog post about how ActivityPub is going to change the internet. Check it out here: And please boost/share to your other networks so we can keep making the Fediverse bigger!

my mac is possessed and has decided to pop open the emoji keyboard window whenever a new text input appears. hammering all the keys doesn't seem to have fixed it.

my bottom left hot-corner has also stopped being hot.

I can't believe pixelfed will be 6 months old in a week.

I probably would have abandoned the project after a few weeks (like many past side projects) but the support it's received has kept me motivated and inspired.

Thank you fediverse ❤️
