There are five browser cores:
- webkit
- chromium
- gecko
- servo
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos

@developit even with a build step would you choose HTM over JSX?

Curious about why and when you use it.

Working on a new icon for App Icon Preview, using App Icon Preview :P

Iterating on this with @jimmac and @snwh is a ton of fun!

I wonder why I spent my day making this but you can now use Contrast to compare "visually" multiple fg/bg

A threat I didn't think of before. Accepting PRs for open source projects that change the lock file should be done with care.

I setup #Spotify TUI and Spotifyd for a mostly free software streaming setup.

It was quite easy to setup and uses way less resources than the Electron app or website.

Need a working up-to-date version of `next-update` CLI in my life. This looks very useful, to fork or not to fork?

configuring git to use bat instead of cat has been an incredibly sound decision. Look at this gorgeous diff! With method-aware context display!

Does anybody know how to get the resolved file path of an imported ECMAScript module in Node.js 13? Basically the equivalent of `require.resolve`.

🦇 TIL about the fill method on the the Array constructor in :

`[...Array(14).fill('NA '), 'BATMAN!!!'].join('')`

💡 TIL imgix, an image processing service, exposes their URL parameters in a machine-friendly JSON format in a versioned npm package: github.com/imgix/imgix-url-par

Pretty nifty idea huh?

Buddhist development:
* There should be no code for the future or past, only the present
* Acknowledge that everything is connected when you add a feature
* Karma will cycle back so avoid shortcuts or clever tricks
* Code is ephemeral, don’t get attached
* Meditate on your problem and the answer will present itself
