Working around polymer modulizer errors with object rest spread properties. Because sometimes you just have to.
Packed theatre on day one of PerfMattersConf. Amazing content and crowd. #perfmatters
I'm really happy to see long task surface on the performance panel in M74. 🎉 Incredibly useful. https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2019/03/devtools#longtasks
Fantastic piece by Jamie Alberico on making sense of
Lighthouse perf numbers. If you're not measuring your web perf, you're doing your users a disservice. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/a-technical-seo-guide-to-lighthouse-performance-metrics/292703/
Digging this explainer on Never-Slow Mode by
Alex Russell. The notion of per-interaction budgets/limits is in my opinion something you should probably be thinking about already (regardless of whether it's feature policy that happens or not). https://github.com/slightlyoff/never_slow_mode
Trying to pare down my parts buy list for PhotoFair tomorrow. Who am I kidding, that never works.🤣 https://4photofair.wordpress.com/
I dig the Ergotron LX monitor arms, but could not source a wall mount. Time to cut, weld, and mount my own. https://justinribeiro.com/chronicle/2019/02/15/welding-up-a-custom-ergotron-lx-wall-mount-bracket/
I maintain that examples like this is where WebAssembly shines and is most accessible to devs today; replacement of poor computation perf to smooth perf across browsers/embed VMs. A really well written analysis from Surma. https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2019/02/hotpath-with-wasm
We had a great wide ranging conversation with
@auchenberg about Visual Studio Code, web standards, DevTools, and his latest experimental extension for Code, browser-preview with Chrome headless. Don't miss it! https://thewebplatformpodcast.com/183-visual-studio-code
Working on a show pitch, basically The Great British Bake Off but for web components. You get a mix of devs in a tent focused on WC output (think lit, stencil, et cetera) while @Paul_Kinlan (the show requires a Paul by definition) and @notwaldorf review.
It would be glorious.
lit-html hits 1.0.0 https://github.com/Polymer/lit-html/releases/tag/v1.0.0, as lit-element follows suit: https://github.com/Polymer/lit-element/releases/tag/v2.0.0🎉♥👍
Had such a wonderful conversation with @benschwarz about web performance on The Web Platform Podcast, we probably could have spoken for another hour. I ♥ web performance and the tools that are now available. Give'em a spin!
I've started asking myself "does the web platform have the api surface I need to build tiny problem solving progressive web apps?" on a nearly daily basis. The end result: I've started building tiny utility PWAs and find I can't stop.
Reminder that I'm in Phoenix this weekend IoT DevFest to MC and talk web and IoT. Don't have a ticket? There a few left, grab one while you can! https://www.iotdevfest.com/
I've been testing this for a bit and it's a lovely add-on for many workflows. If you peek under the hood, you'll find Chrome headless. I'm so happy to see this come to fruition!
Want to learn more? Be on the lookout,
Kenneth is scheduled to be on the show in the soon! 🎉
