πŸ“ Notes

Love it when people come into repos and tell authors that their library is useless 😍

Please invest in my new startup where I scrape websites and write useable UI using the data

OK I stuck my dumb micropub script in a gist if you're interested: https://gist.github.com/koddsson/f9e3b07ad44eeaff3d2342c2be247f47

Here's another test note!

Posting a note from my terminal!

Due to https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48486672 and other factors, I think I'm gonna retire my twitter account and just toss my random thoughts on my personal website and in a RSS feed.

Please just integrate bluetooth headphones into my skull already.

Here is me and some rocks

I installed the @Spotify Web App as a app in Chrome and now I can lunch it like a app, the media keys work and it can do picture in picture? 😱Is this Chrome specific or web standards?

Do y'all use the github emoji autocomplete at all any more? Is it all in the native device emoji picker these days?

Do you ever use any of the "hair" emojis introduced in Unicode 11 on their own? Like would you ever use 🦰? It's such a weird emoji and I think it's only going to be used to make a red haired person emoji πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦°

A screenshot from github.com comment textarea with the text `:man_red` entered and the emoji suggester showing a red haired man emoji as a suggestion.

I'm doing real important work right now.

I just opened a really important github.com PR

They are called Web Components because they are Components on the Web.

I made a simple tool to help me add Coauthored-by: trailers to my git commits when working with other people since I kept forgetting to. You can run it with npx so no installation required if you have npm.

npx coworking-with -h to get started

I really like just building small scripts and tools. I often call it "building some stupid shit" since I feel it takes any pressure of it being some elegant software. I can just hack together what I need and iterate over it as my usage of the tool grows.

Suggestion for emoji implementers. Chefs Kiss; combination of πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ³β€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘ŒπŸ» to show a chef's kiss to indicate that something is really favorable.

I have the best GitHub profile

I really want a meetup that is just short talks on something really dumb but cool. Little scripts, tools or processes. I don't have the attention span for 30min+ talks.

Wrote a little script that will append Coauthored-by: [..] strings to your commit messages while you are in "coworking mode". Super useful if you pair a lot with people and forget to add the Coauthored-by signatures a lot. https://github.com/koddsson/coworking-with

So love, death and robots is pretty fucking great

Egg Boi Forever

There's literally zero evidence that office working actually works.

Surprising the hoops people will go through to not fix accessibility issues in their code πŸ€”

One thing that has been hammered home for me while working at GitHub is how powerful shipping things behind feature flags is.

Tofu fried rice is amazing

I really love zines and I'd love to publish one some day.

I don't get how UberEats insists on recommending me non-vegan food when I've ordered nothing but vegan food in their app, ever.

We in the web-systems team at GitHub just open sourced session-resume, a micro library that handles persisting text inputs over page navigations. https://github.com/github/session-resume

Why do I love Ariana Grande now?

Test note; please ignore

Now my micropub blog at koddsson.com/notes will also post image posts to twitter ✨

I want to add support for instagram posting, replying to tweets and other micropub blogs and more.

I was on a boat!

My little app that acts as a micropub media endpoint and uploads your images to your S3 bucket now strips all the EXIF data from the image for added privacy 🧨

I need a better note taking app. Notion is great but not being able to access it when I'm offline and not being able to sync the data to a data source I control is a deal breaker for me.

What did y'all do for your 30th? Mine's coming up and I dread planning a thing for it πŸ˜–

I think the reason why I don't write as much tests as I should is because mocking and stubbing things is terribly hard to set up and never seems to work. Just spent an hour to try to stub the fetch requests and it just doesn't wok at all.

I made some vegan creamy vegan gnocchi the other day πŸ˜™πŸ‘Œ

Just set up webmentions on https://koddsson.com/notes so your replies from other places such as micro.blog will show up there πŸ•Ί

One thing I would use AR for is hiding all the non vegan stuff in supermarkets.

While Spotify Wrapped is really cool, I'm slightly concerned that I couldn't open it on Firefox 😀

The more I think about it, I think package.json as JSON5 would be really cool since you'd be able to comment on why you are pinning a package to a certain version or other comments.

I would like to buy a Go Gopher miniature please!

youtube keeps showing me gin ads and I hate it

HalfStack got my name right! πŸ’ƒ

I just made vegan french toast and it was amazing. Surpassingly easy and indistinguishable from a eggy one.

I'm watching Hilda on Netflix and I am L O V I N G it

Hopefully I've fixed the title error in my RSS feed

It really annoys me that youtube can do a video overlay on my phone when I'm in SF but it won't work in London.

I love American Vandal. It's so great πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ

DO YOU REMEMBER! THE 21ST NIGHT OF SEPTEMBER!

I started watching this Korean show about "House husbands" on youtube and I love it.

Test failures that just say: Expected 0 to be >0 are so unhelpful πŸ˜–

A service like fiver.com but I pay someone $5 to write a bash alias/function for me.

Not a monorepo but a monoslackchannel ✨

Happy Monday!

Here is my favorite birb in the world.

I keep messing around with my micropub blog. Sorry if my RSS feed keeps messing up πŸ˜“

Boy was I tired 😬

I'm gonna hack on so many things this weekend.

I normally don't let celebrity deaths get to me but I'm feeling very emotional about Mac Miller passing at 26. RIP Easy Mac.

It's amazing all the money you save when you have food poisoning and don't eat anything πŸ’·

Throwback to when I had viruses in my eyes

The difference between wearing a sports jersey in the UK and the US is that in the UK people wanna beat you up if you wear the team they don't like and in the US tell you how much they like the team whose jersey you are wearing.

I don't wanna hear about dogs passing away. I would like to continue to believe they life forever πŸ’”

I've been running a pi.hole for a while at home and it's pretty great.

Had a really good day 😊

Alexa, play The Net with Sandra Bullock. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

I don't have a PS4 so I'm just watching a 6 hour play-through of God Of War 4.

See if I can post a note from quill.

Avocado πŸ₯‘ toast 🍞 is the best 😻

London weather is starting to chill out. I can wear a jumper soon 😍

πŸŽ‰ 1 WHOLE YEAR AT GITHUB TODAY πŸŽ‰

I'm really enjoying working with the awesome people I work with every day.

Almost noon and I haven't put on trousers yet πŸ’€

I'm psyched about the IndieWeb. Building compatible tools is fun! πŸ•Ί
