If you still use GitHub as your main place to host your projects, reconsider.

Git is made to be decentralized.

Use it.

How to de-Google-ify your website to make it faster and more visitor friendly markosaric.com/degoogleify/

Interesting approach to monetizing on the web. Alternatives to the ad/tracking model exist.

"An example that gives me a heart attack is Tailwind CSS generates over 40 thousand lines of CSS by default. Bonkers."

"Apple just deployed into production nearly 50 web components powering a major app they have a significant amount of revenue and strategic value riding on. You can't say that "no one uses Web Components" or they are "solving problems that don't exist or have been solved better in user land" with a straight face anymore."

“React”

sonniesedge.net/posts/react/

“Why I have a problem with React the library and spend a lot of time talking to my therapist”

This feels broadly correct. React has not been a good influence over the web. And that's even before you take into account that it exists to support Facebook's development and recruitment.

Ah fuck it. Here's my thoughts on React - why I've found it and what it represents problematic even before recent events.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

"They say the era of an open web made by humans instead of giant corporations is over." Man, this really hit me in the feels. Good luck to Glitch and everything they're doing. twitter.com/anildash/status/11

Instead of new JS-based built-in components we need more things like grids, flexbox, and position: sticky that are implementing UI basics in CSS instead of JS.

IMHO and all that.

I'm going to enthusiastically point everybody again at the excellent "Every Layout".
every-layout.dev/

If you do CSS, then I can't recommend it highly enough. It's only been out for a short while and isn't complete but it's already changed a lot of my CSS practices.

Whatever they're selling, I'm going to buy it when it comes out.

Plain Text vs. HTML Emails: Which Is Better? [New Data]

Spoiler: it’s plain text. Every time.

"There are many reasons to use a JavaScript framework like Vue, Angular, or React. Last year, Nicole asked for some of those reasons. Her question received many, many answers from people pointing out the benefits of using a framework. Interesingly, though, not a single one of those benefits was for end users."
