Are there tools (VSCode plugins, IDEs) that into this direction?

The MVP version of this would be a VSCode plugin (maybe together with Blockman) that automatically selects full code blocks when otherwise a line would be selected.

IDEs should make it harder to produce wrong syntax (which includes bad formatting) instead of producing it by default.

Example: The cursor is on the beginning of an if-statement. You use the toggle comment shortcut. The IDE should either comment out the beginning and end bracket or the whole block, but NOT just the line, since that produces invalid syntax, requires further steps and is definitely not the user's real goal.

Love that the “request desktop website” button on mobile browsers doesn’t actually do that anymore.
Because (I guess) it just fakes the user agent, if the site is responsive, it just stays the same and you’re 100% victim of whatever bad random “mobile users don’t need that” decisions some designer made.

So apparently the contact information you can attach to an AirTag can contain arbitrary JavaScript to be run inside the scanner’s browser.

Secure Shell is a cryptographic network protocol for astrally projecting securely over an unsecured network.

is so damn easy to set up. It just works! Eventually I want something more FOSS (Headscale or Nebula), but even when those solutions have the features I want they probably won't ever come close in convenience.

I aspire to build stuff that is as easy to set up as

What would you do if this guy came up to you and said „I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).“
