Testing out the @draftsapp Credential object. A very handy thing, as it turns out…
Texting my brothers via Siri, I start a sentence with “I like that idea…”. The Echo in the room hears “Alexa” and responds out loud. Now my text reads “I like that idea, hanging out over there sorry, I don’t know that one.” The Future is forever in beta.
“I’ll start by using frames to set up the framework for this new website.” The one-two punch of nostalgia and terror that is Andy Clarke’s Designing Your Site Like It’s 1998.
Posting from Drafts, via GitHub, through Jekyll on Netlify. micro.blog picks it up from there and mirrors to Twitter. The bit where a @draftsapp workflow creates the front matter and posts to GitHub’s REST API might merit a blog post. The rest is probably nuts.
The native Git integration in Atom is really nice. I’m an old-school everything-from-the-command-line guy, but even (especially) for partial, granular commits, I find myself staying in the editor most of the time.
git add -pis becoming a rarity.
Another advent calendar: the Performance Calendar presents 24 nuggets each year looking at web performance from often-surprising (to me) angles.
I keep wondering “why am I so tired?”
I spend enough time at enough Bash prompts editing enough random text files that I spend a decent chunk of each day forgetting which mode I’m in. The Vimways Advent Calendar just might make me slightly more useful in these situations.
Why yes, I am playing with micro.blog. (Non-)surprise! Manton and the gang are rattling off a variety of things their service can get up to, all of which look like fun, in 12 Days of Microblogging.
