Prerendered Pains

On this website, I normally only write about solutions I’ve come up with to problems I’ve encountered (pertaining to web development). I recognize that’s not entirely authentic because I can’t solve every problem I come across. Sometimes, I’ll come across an issue where the solution isn’t immediately clear to me. Sometimes, it festers for long […]

Svelte Work:Rest Timer

I was recently approached by a friend to build an app. Now, I’ve been cornered and pitched far too many half-brained apps in my day but it is refreshing to hear a good pitch. This pitch was for a timer, but not just any timer or stopwatch app that comes preinstalled on your phone. Rather, […]

BUY! BUY! BUY!

I’ve been writing on this blog for nearly 9 years and I’ve learned so much since I started. The style and the content have come a long ways and I cringe every time I read old posts thoroughly enjoy seeing how I’ve grown as a developer. I’ve interacted with people that I never would have […]

Global CSS in SvelteKit

I’ve been playing around with Svelte and SvelteKit recently. So far, I’m a fan but one thing that bothers me is how styles are managed. See, way back in the day when I wanted to build a website, I would create the style of that website in a single file called a Cascading Style Sheet […]

CSS Hamburger Menu

I like the hamburger menu. It makes sense. So this is the one that I use when building a menu for mobile devices. Here’s the HTML: <nav id=”mobile-navigation” class=”site-navigation mobile-navigation” role=”navigation”> <a href=”#” class=”mobile-menu-link”>MENU<span></span></a> </nav> And the SCSS: .mobile-navigation { display: none; .mobile-menu-link { display: block; position: relative; width: 90px; height: 30px; left: 0; color: […]

Developing with Vagrant

Recently, I’ve been trying to find ways to speed up my development time, and I came across a great video showcasing Vagrant. I could spend a lot of time writing a bunch of mumbo jumbo here for you to read, or you could just watch the video that explains it a thousand times better than […]

DemocracyOS

It’s been pretty slow on the web development front for me lately, but I have discovered something new and interesting. It’s called DemocracyOS. What is DemocracyOS? Oh, I’m so glad you asked. Well it’s an open-sourced platform that aims to bring democracy back into the hands of the people in a way that makes voting […]

The Perfect Browser Home Page

UPDATE! Google removed the ability to host web pages within Google Drive so my simple and free hosting solution provided here (plus the link to the files) is dead. I decided a while back that I could do my home page (in browser) better than just the standard google.com page. I tailored an html file […]

Shortcodes for Custom Column Sizes

WordPress is great, but sometimes, when you’re writing a blog post, the WSIWYG is just lacking certain features. Say you want to format your content and make things a little cleaner. Like this: By the way, you can get copy/paste lorem ipsum from¬†http://www.lipsum.com/feed/html Well, if this is something you’d like to be able to do, […]
