I find myself privately sharing @slightlyoff 's post on The Market for Lemons yet again:

"In a bazaar dominated by lemon vendors, many tools and communities have been respectful of today's mostly-mobile users at the expense of their own marketability. These are today's honest brokers and they deserve your attention far more than whatever solution to a problem created by React that the React community is on about this week."

As a person, I've been thinking about how we might work into sites, so we can push code out to production without it being active.

This pattern allows testing integrations, developing on top of future functionality, etc.

So I was surprised to see a new config in a 10.1 upgrade -- system.feature_flags !

Right now just the Decoupled Menus initiative uses it -- instead of being a separate module, it's enabled/disabled through a config setting.

As my daughter would say, "Sick!"

I just hooked up my Thunderbird Supernova using addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/t , and now it uploads large file attachments to my private Nextcloud, adds a sharing link, and embeds it all in the email with the press of a button. Took longer to write this message than to get it set up!

Nice work.

@tamas @b0rk @evan My git history resembles my desk -- chaotic, disordered, a messy pile of stuff!

I haven't had any trouble with git bisect, though maybe I've just gotten lucky -- I don't use it all that often (but have used it 4 - 5 times in the past year)

@b0rk @evan I understand why you can't push after a rebase, but I also don't understand why people say "rebase is good". Would love to hear about these workflows where it matters...

Just finished creating a nodejs script to easily create orgs and repos within a @forgejo / server, from a shell.

And created ~45 new repositories in a matter of a few minutes!

h/t @erikareads Ctrl-Shift-S in Firefox opens a really slick screen shot tool! Select an element, drag for a region, button for full page or viewport!

@b0rk I am a big fan of Tailwind, but see it quite a bit differently than others in this thread, or the OP.

As I see it, you need strong CSS skills to use TW effectively -- and then it's a power tool. Dangerous in the hands of beginners.

Actually, we use UnoCSS instead -- TW plus more power tools like custom variants, custom rules. And we have a strict "no TW classes in admin interfaces" policy.

I need to write up my own blog post on this!

@amev7fam @jalefkowit but then again, isn't everyone on Mastodon a weird nerd? At least my daughter says so

Apparently my daughter and her friends directed the substitute school bus driver on a scenic route to school... involving a trip through downtown (entirely the opposite direction as the school). 🤣

Never count on a middle-school kid for directions to school!

Apparently they are far more reliable for the return trip home...
