Likely controverisal take:

Languages with first-class package managers that make it really easy to use dependencies are a case where ease-of-use and usability might be actively harmful. It encourages developers to NOT audit their dependencies, and eventually leads to node_modules, which eventually leads to leftpad. Having fewer dependencies because adding depenedencies is annoying is not actually necessarily a bad thing.

Not really sure about system fonts, but for the download I do like FontSquirrel (

And tangentially, for choosing a font, was invaluable to me on last occasion.
Granted, they do link to Google Fonts, but all linked fonts should be libre and in many cases downloadable from elsewhere.

Apparently, mobile browsers are spelling nazis and refuse to accept 'wiewport' in place of 'viewport'.

I should return my English certificates.

I just spent about an hour digging into internals, because the filter `slice()` does not work as Python slices (`[:x]`) 😑

Can anyone knowledgeable enough enlighten me what the slice filter *is* for, then?

Since I usually work mainly at CLI, I usually did not bother to switch to browser to toot if the inspiration hit me.

Lo and behold, there is an client, and now I can toot to my hearth's content:
