I learnt a bit of CSS while creating a dark node form my blog (I’m a slave to fashion). In particular, how applying a CSS filter to something affects its place in the order of a stacking context. It may be the very first time I’ve used z-index for a good (and unavoidable) reason! https://qubyte.codes/blog/dark-mode
It uses a cute trick to do this. Since the site is deployed from git (GitHub) using Netlify, the build has access to a clone of the repository and can clone it into a bare repo in the public folder. A bare repo hosted by an HTTP server is a read-only git server!
My site hosts a mirror of its own git repository. It serves no purpose to do this other than to amuse me.
In case you missed it, #ffconf is only one day this year so will likely sell out fast. Get your tickets early!!! 5 minutes to go.
We're just sitting here, waiting to hit the BIG RED LIVE button to switch those tickets and let you hit our site as hard as you can! 👍
@ffconf tickets live in 45 minutes…
It worked! I wrote a little glitch to turn webhook requests from webmention.io into github issues for my static site blog. Later I might enhance this to make a pull request against the an article to add the mention. #indieweb #webmention https://glitch.com/edit/#!/webmention-io-webhook-to-github-issue
Testing an integration out. Don't mind me: https://qubyte.codes/blog/how-i-schedule-posts-using-github-actions
Someone called out my code and technology choices in a public slack channel. They’ve clearly not understood what the code is doing (and it’s some of my clearest).
That’s not important though. What is important when you have a gripe with another’s shit:
- Read it again, harder.
- Speak to the author in private. Ask for their help to understand what’s going on and why.
- If you can’t speak to them directly, speak with someone else who can help *in private*.
