I've decided to share my #100daysofcode "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.

Stay awesome and have a lovely day! 👍

PROFESSOR: so tell me why are you all are taking this class on social media?
EVERYONE: *some variation on “I like instagram and want a job”*
ME: I’m interested in the ways social media allow companies to assert ownership over organically formed communities… *tents fingers* and how to put a stop to that
PROFESSOR (nervous): …ok
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.
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 #Gulp 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)
The problem with this, though, is I'm trying to serve as much static content with #Django 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 #Safari 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.
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.
