I built the original in 2015 with a number of learning goals, among which were actually finishing projects, and React. Over the years several people have taken the effort of actually reaching out to me to share how it's been helpful to them, which has been very gratifying.

Rebuilding it was a good way of reflecting on both how much I've learned since then, and how much our tooling has improved.

I relaunched my tutorial! It gets you from being able to use Git to actually understanding it in less than fifteen minutes.

It is now also usable on smaller screens, looks a bit more modern, and is now up-to-date with modern Git features and conventions.

This week's side project might be useful for Solid developers. It's called Penny, and it allows you to inspect and manipulate data in your Pod.

Give it a try here, and let me know what you think: Penny.VincentTunru.com

It's here! My masterpiece, the last VSCode extension you will ever need: Whoopee cushion keyboard.

Yes, it makes fart sounds when you type.

That's it. That's the extension.

Or don't, that's probably better.

If you look up regular expressions on MDN, it now includes an explicit example highlighting that \w does not actually match all alphanumeric characters in most languages.

Hopefully that will result in fewer people being told that their actual, real name is "not valid".

It's time syntax highlighting themes stopped de-emphasising comments. Especially when they're used in documentation.

The resemblance between this endangered animal and the browser named after it is uncanny.

Just found out that the Web Replay experiment of the Firefox DevTools was discontinued.

Such a shame; it really would have been a killer feature: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do

I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.

If you run Android, be sure to give it a try: github.com/westnordost/StreetC

I saw an actual, Dutch-language, physical billboard ad for DuckDuckGo. I'm not too big of a fan of billboard ads, but it's pretty cool that privacy is enough of a selling point that this is a sensible investment.

(Though of course, it's not unlikely that outdoor advertising is relatively cheap today.)

Apparently OpenStreetMaps also allows you to record pandemic-related altered opening hours. Pretty cool.

Medical staff calling for people to stay home - I'm especially digging the person holding two sheets with nothing but exclamation marks.

If not Firefox, then I wonder if there's *any* non-Chrome browser that Zoom would consider "standard".
