Pinned toot

I've decided to share my "tweets" here. If you find this spammy, be sure to filter them out in your timeline. I will always use the 100DaysOfCode hashtag.

I think I have enough of a personal following to move some of my more "personal" toots away from public timelines. This is great! I'll still share on the public local stream/fediverse. Especially if it's relevant to my local instance, funny or important/informative.

If you want to see the "other stuff" - go ahead and click the follow button.

Stay awesome and have a lovely day! 👍

Just discovered that I can use WeeChat's extensibility to connect to Slack channels as well as XMPP servers.

...if I have to suffer Slack (which I apparently do), why not do it the ncurses way? :awesome:

Aaaand I'm enjoying freenode quite a bit. The techies are pretty active. Things I enjoy about irc:

- No faces
- Mostly anonymous people
- No distracting graphics
- Limited logging

Most of the "missing modern features" are something of a blessing. It's easier to feel non biased, read without distractions and sort of chat "in the moment." But, maybe I'm romanticizing a little.

@trevdev IRC is the cockroach of social media. It will outlive us all.

After 12+ years I gave IRC another shot. Honestly, I think it's pretty cool. Too bad it seems fairly dead.

That moment when I get a burrito from my lovely that appears to be labelled "GTK" - it's an open source burrito.

If you're curious and want to see my configs for my workflow for combining Gulp & Webpack for a mostly static Wagtail site, here they are:

I managed to solve this with the use of and setup my npm scripts to run both Gulp and Webpack in tandum.

This way all of my global scss gets rendered into *static* css at the top of the document and is rendered by the browser on the initial download.

Honestly, I kind of wish people kept supporting single .vue files with Gulp. I could've avoided two different build tools. Gulp in my view is superior as I don't believe all things should be rendered with JS >_> (1/1)

seems to be the best way to deal with single file .vue files. It can also compile the sites global scss files into one JS file along with the components.

The problem with this, though, is I'm trying to serve as much static content with as I can.

The end result with having the entire site's CSS generated with JS is horrible page-load flicker as the page render with no styles, then re-rendered with *all* of the styles. (0/1)

If you enjoy Fedilab (previously Mastalab) and want to see it succeed, consider donating what you can to help the developer make it better.

The average cost of a premium app is probably $5. If everyone who used Fedilab donated that, that dev will have the right equipment to keep building in no-time.

This is just one of the many things you could do for any open source developer whose work you enjoy but cannot contribute to yourself <3

Today's unexpected but necessary side-project: Get MacOS working in virtualbox because I'm tired of not being able to properly test websites in on Linux.

Audited and followed a script that was written to help ease the process. Following the script in Vim was handy, as I was able to correct Virtualbox's sendkey typos :/

Wish me luck, hopefully this VM works.

Got my webpack config for vue components sorted out!

The plan: build vue components as vue files that accept props wherever need be, then use the wagtail StructBlock/StreamBlock to pass wagtailcms data to those props.

Tests currently working in a small test folder. Pretty cool!

OoooOoooh! Things are looking fancy around here, @ashfurrow! Nice.

Learning more about Wagtail CMS has been a pleasure so far. I'm thinking about practising with it. What else to practise it with? My portfolio.

The last time I rebuilt it, it was with React. It turned out "ok" but I haven't felt properly satisfied with it.

How does Wagtail (ssr) content with Vue powered elements sound? It sounds pretty cool to me. It'll finally have a blog, too.

Oh man, they have a convenient shop filled with high quality parts. That's changed since the last time I looked (I think!). Time to make a wishlist.
