In the last few days, I am not able to load @twitter in Safari on my MacOS desktop. It looks like there is some timeout when the SPA tries to call Twitter API. Is anybody else experiencing the same issue? Mobile Safari on iPhone works well.

Hezky pěkně! Na mém iPhone s aktuální verzí iOS (13.7) můžu používat COVID-19 trasování i bez čekání na novou verzi eRoušky @RouskaE 👏🎉

If your project is using commitlint and signed-off-by rule, then I have good news for you! My patch fixing the rule to ignore git commit comments (lines starting with #) was landed - see github.com/conventional-change. Note: so far, it has been released to npm under "next" tag only.

The new eslint rule "@typescript-eslint/no-implicit-any-catch" is golden! I wish it was around when we started LB4, our error handling would be much more robust.

TIL about Calendar Versioning: a versioning convention based on your project's release calendar, instead of arbitrary numbers.

Starting a new open source library is easy. Attracting community of users is not that difficult too. Ensuring the project will be maintained for as long as it's used, that's much more challenging!

- npmjs.com/package/msgpack-lite
- npmjs.com/package/msgpack5
- npmjs.com/package/msgpack
Any recommendation on what to use?

Remember that code review:

- is better when you come prepared
- is better without tools
- is more mentoring than control
- is not only about bad parts
- is an act of humility
- must be the first priority
- doesn’t tolerate exceptions & abstract judgment

Moje první dojmy z přesunu NerdDinner na EventBrite jsou zatím rozpačité. Do názvu události nejde dát emoji, což jsem zjistil až když text za emoji byl ořezán. Na stránce události není vidět, kolik lidí přijde, a už vůbec ne kdo konkrétně.
