Sara’s write-up on SVG, accessibility and semantics contains just the right amount of detail. “Implementing Accessible Data Charts for the Khan Academy 2018 Annual Report” https://www.sarasoueidan.com/blog/accessible-data-charts-for-khan-academy-2018-annual-report/
Mastodon 3.0 features server whitelisting, improved search, and trending hashtags. https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/10/mastodon-3.0/
I’ve previously used Laravel Valet for WordPress development—and both Windows and Linux ports of it actually exist—and it’s nice to see its inner workings somewhat clarified. https://deliciousbrains.com/how-laravel-valet-works-exactly/
This recent Wasabi outage has really highlighted the centralization endemic in the fediverse.
When will we learn? #fediverse
My Dutch-language shitposts appear mostly on https://mastodon.social/@ochtendgrijs these days. Not sure maintaining multiple online identities really is the way to go, but yeah.
“[T]he Trump and Johnson camps are whipping up their supporters to believe that their legal problems [rather than part of a system of checks and balances] are an act of revenge by political enemies intent on thwarting the will of the people.” https://www.ft.com/content/a8cc15d8-e35a-11e9-9743-db5a370481bc

Most of my plugins rely heavily on WP-Cron, and this nicely summarizes its behavior. “The WP-Cron functions are not actually cron functions.
