@nolan I like what Create React App does: only enable ESLint rules that help catch/prevent bugs.
As far as I've seen, most people's own coding style is similar enough that they're perfectly able to read and modify each other's code, which really is the main thing that matters.
@rgggn Theoretically, I am.
When someone says they've got nothing to hide, the worst counter-argument you can give is "try going to the bathroom with the door open". It is easy to deflect and completely misses the point.
They're actually right: they do not have anything to hide. The ones who do are journalists, whistle-blowers, persecuted minorities, etc.
And if those are the only ones taking privacy-preserving measures, that fact alone will be a red flag.
re: FOSS / tech / privacy musings
@bjarni @mkb Absolutely - although the same holds true to some extent for trustable architectures. Just the fact that you're using Tor, even when some actor cannot see what you're doing, can flag you for closer examination.
In fact, that's exactly the reason why I try to use privacy-minded products: for my threat model, it's not really necessary, but I can provide cover for journalists, whistleblowers, etc.
FOSS / tech / privacy musings
@bjarni Trustable architectures are best, but "Dont trust that guy, trust me!"-systems are still a reasonable intermediate solution.
When an organisation makes privacy their selling point, that gives them incentive not to betray that trust - making it more likely that they will respect that trust.
Again, not perfect, but not useless either.
I'd like to write a thread about some of the performance tricks in #Pinafore, just for those who might be interested.
@nolan I had a library that someone basically wanted reimplemented for their environment. Whatever, I had some spare time, felt like working on it, so I did.
Provided a new prerelease build, asking them to let me know whether that satisfied their use case.
"You're too quick, let me check after the weekend."
Never a word after that :(
@elementary Are your RSS Feed URLs still the same? This post doesn't show up in my feed reader...
@Hdv@toot.cafe I imagine the recommendation part would be on the roadmap of https://www.bookaroo.nl
@baldur And native apps on phones have the worst of both worlds...

I'm not sure I want to know which is cause and which is effect...
@surma What do you mean by that? Aren't ES6 modules provided by... ES6? I use them all the time in my React projects. Unless I'm misunderstanding something?
@moopet Thanks, I didn't even know that was an option! I suppose you need more reputation for that than I have, because I can't find the button to add my nomination...
@moopet In this case, it came down to:
When I see the error "CORS header ‘Origin’ cannot be added" - _why_ could it not be added?
There are actually people being helpful in the comments, but they're not rewarded for it with that sweet, sweet upvote karma.
@pixelfed If it will be opt-in or opt-out, it would be good if the API would at least indicate whether the instance has not opted in/opted out.
