Yes, you _can_ have an interactive search feature on your static site! No need for servers or paid subscriptions here. Thanks to the open source Lunr and the power of Hugo static site generator, you can create a client-side search index with just a template and some JavaScript.

A number of my readers have been kind enough to tell me that you find my blog useful, but thereโ€™s something that you donโ€™t know. Up until I recently implemented a search feature onโ€ฆ

i had not realized the degree to which these right-leaning podcasts are basically just infomercials for snake oil

"This is probably not the update you want."

The result of Google restricting their services to particular user-agents and builds.

Are standards really standards if you only let yourself (and maybe one friend) participate?

Hey, I'm Kyla! I'm a trans woman woman of color (she/her) and am a web dev. I work with Rails and React and have a strong focus on making tech more inclusive to marginalized people.

Currently I'm reading Brene Brown books, learning to sew and cross-stitch, and trying to learn video game music on the piano.

I haven't started yet but I also want to start streaming my live-coding adventures.

Hello Mastodon !

I'm a web developer with 5 years of experience and I'm looking to monetize my skills outside my day job! I'm already trying on Code mentor but there is a lot of competition, if you are looking for someone or you know somebody that is looking for some help on a programming project, tell me ! There is a great chance I can help you ๐Ÿ™‚

One cruddy thing about MS Teams is that it can take weeks or longer to push through a profile update.

Which is no big deal when you change you profile pic from Squidward to Dipper.

But when someone changes gender and name, you're forced to deadname them , even though IT's done their job. So that sucks.

I have a favor to ask.

My 10-year-old daughter is obsessed with and talks about them day and night. No one else in my family can really talk shop much, so I'm looking for a group of kids she can talk to about this stuff.

I checked and our library doesn't have a club, real or virtual, and I couldn't find any meetups.

Is there less local group that people like that's good for kids? A forum or Discord channel would also work.

P. S. I live in a western Chicago Suburb. Thank you advance!

I wrote a small blog post, talking about my journey trying to get and use a emoji domain:

Lets see what my next small side project will be.

I created my first web store using last weekend and I'm very impressed. It includes a ton of very slick features for free and the ecosystem is very rich.
