Anyone have recommended reading on Front-End App Architecture? Preferably not React-specific, but that's fine. I'd like the knowledge to transfer to other frameworks like Mithril, Hyperapp, Svelte, etc.
reading the news is a bigger waste of time than playing video games
what are some options excluding TypeScript and Flow for type-checking a Node project?
You could write it in Reason and output JS. :)
the sun kil moon/jesu collab albums are seriously underrated
anyone running Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi? what's the easiest way to get it up and running fast? I got me an 8GB model with an external SSD.
There should be ready made Debian compatible packages for nextcloud. **EDIT** There is actually this: ownyourbits.com/ne...
Yes ! with Archlinux ARM on PI 4, 2 GB model with 128 GB SD Card. Minimal config. With your device's configuration, it could be easy to setup Nextcloud. I don't see any package for installation (or a snap package maybe)
drupal is the worst thing in the world
installing WSL2 on my work PC. hopefully this goes well...
Docker with WSL2 backend was a huge upgrade for my workflow.
Learning SQL! Starting with a simple app. Posted a question on stackoverflow, but wondering if anyone here can help? The full question is over here: stackoverflow.com/...
best storage for a Raspberry Pi if I want to host web applications? wondering how viable an SD card/flash drive/2.5 SSD are. I'm thinking of getting an external enclosure for a 2.5 SSD i have lying around and using that, but not sure how each compares.
I host web applications (Nextcloud, Wordpress, ...) on my rasp with an SD card (128 Go) for the moment. It's not the best i know but working well. If i buy next year the 4 Go RAM version, i'll be interested in using a SSD.
I think the main issue with the SD card (even more than speed) is the usually shitty lifetimes.
What is your text editor of choice? I'm a Sublime Text kinda guy. :)
Kakoune. It's like Vim but the other way around.
My daily editor is Visual Studio Code. I use it for a variety of tasks involving text editing other than programming. If I lived on a terminal, though, I would use Vim every day.
vim. I installed a trial of pyCharm for my python projects. Jetbrains want 8 dlls a month for the right to use pyCharm. I have to admit, it's super complete (indexing, in-line debugging, the works).
Emacs. I do most things in emacs though. Sadly, it's missing a decent browser otherwise I could practically do everything in it.
What is your RSS Reader of choice? Currently using Inoreader, but wondering about alternatives.
I've never been a big RSS Reader user but Fraidycat looks just too good.
Big fan of Miniflux but I was using Inoreader before (:
I used Feedbro browser extension (add-on).
I tried many RSS Reader and now because my RSS feeds are managed by the News app from my nextcloud instance, currently using OCC Reader on my phone, downloaded from F-Droid
I use Feeder on Android. Basic, but it does the job. I have used Inoreader in the past and liked its UI however the free version has ads, right? Also used Feedly before which was okayish.
What's your go-to minimal CSS lib/framework? I'm talking TINY. I'm still rocking Basscss (2.13kb min+gzip), but looking for something that's maintained.
To buy new PC Parts, or to wait for prices to dip? I'm in need of a new SSD.
I was told it's the right moment but I don't really know how we could prove it /:
New Samsung 960 PROs just released. The are looking incredible.
Does anyone use Lua predominantly? I'm currently learning it (along with Love2D) and admit I actually really like the syntax and the everything-is-a-table design. Admittedly it has its quirks. I'm wondering why the Lua ecosystem and community is so small compared to other dynamically typed programming languages? I tried installing LuaRocks and installing packages via it on my Windows machine and surprised how it just does not work, and how little support their is.
I learned about it while having fun with PICO-8. It's a lovely language, good design and simple.
anyone use mastodon or pleroma or a fediverse equivalent? the more i use Subreply, the more I realize I like Subreply better. probably because the community is so tiny and the posts aren't as low effort as the ones twitter/mastodon seems to encourage.
I'm with you on the point of the small community, it's really pleasant, on the other hand on the fediverse I broke my bubble filter a little bit and I find a lot of talented people in their field or some nice persons (:
I'm more happy on subreply than on the fediverse side. I think people in here are more happy to engage and discuss with one another, but it feels like people on fediverse are more there to broadcast.
I use both. And both rather infrequent. I even use Twitter (even less frequent). I think it is alright as long as you don't let it become part of your habits. It is just a bit sad, that subreply is a silo so I cannot link everything.
This is why I've come to love Tildes as a reddit alternative. Everyone seems to self regulate post quality as a matter of respect. There's a distinct focus on making sure that when you post, it adds to the discussion or at least attempts to. They can be a bit intimidating to join in with at times, but also exceedingly casual due to the lack of vitriol. If someone questioned something I said on reddit/twitter, I'd get defensive and worry about responding in the first place.
what's your favorite tiny framework? i recently used polka (node.js) for a project and enjoyed it. also i gave bottle.py a whirl a couple weeks ago and found it pleasant. loved that it included its own templating engine.
I always loved flask but it's a long time ago that I used python. Sinatra, the ruby equivalent of flask is great as well. Today I want to give canteen a try. It's kinda like Flask as well but for Rust.
