Writing lots of JavaScript had me leaning fairly hard towards indenting using spaces rather than tabs.

It was a ton of fun, from automating a virtual android device in the cloud to help extract data.

"Speeding up the JavaScript ecosystem - one library at a time" by Marvin Hagemeister marvinh.dev/blog/speeding-up-j

I'll bet you could find a lot of little optimizations like these in common Node.js tools. I wonder how much of the speedup from various Rust/Go/etc replacements is just because nobody bothered to optimize the existing JS-based tools.

To celebrate 1K followers here, something I have been wanting to figure out for a long time: a slippy #Mapbox map with an overlaid #D3 #SVG map synced to it: svelte.dev/repl/2578120142f44b

This means: Mapbox base layers and controls + all the D3 geo goodness like great circles, geoCircles and curved line interpolations!

Of course, built with #Svelte

Call it an obsession, but I love the GitHub contribution graph.

I wrote up a little script to replicate my companies non-Github repos to Github, while shipping no code to hopefully not freak them out.

We are in the midst of another Google Reader-level community disruption.

It’s a good time to reset, take stock, clean house, and own your content!

If you don’t yet have your own web site—it’s a good time to start!

1. The most crucial piece is ownership of the domain name.
2. Then add content (it can just be plain HTML!)
3. Iterate on it! Make it better, but more importantly—make it yours.
