Learn how to create a custom event handler for #Svelte components written in #TypeScript/#ts that listens for clicks outside of itself 🤯
Another busy year writing books and building apps!
Debugging #WebApps on #iOS is a super easy if you have a Macbook. If you’re on #Linux, it’s not. This post documents how I got around that limitation by using #OpenSource utilties and tools.
I’m lazy and you probably are too. This post talks about a few easy-to-use tools that even the laziest of developers can use to ensure their application is accessible to all.

Exploring how to mark #IndexedDB storage as persistent for an offline first #PWA built with #SvelteKit
I was approached to write a book about #SvelteKit because I had written about it here. This post outlines my experience writing a technical book, from start to finish.
Today is the day! You can now buy my new book, SvelteKit Up and Running.

In an effort to promote my upcoming book, I created the website https://sveltekitbook.dev. It has all of the information one may want to know before purchasing a copy. Of course, the book is about #SvelteKit so I had to build the site using #SvelteKit. I decided to take the opportunity to learn the latest technology web developers can’t shut up about; #TailwindCSS.
In my last post, I prefaced it by saying that I haven’t been posting here often because I’ve been busy. In reality, I only missed a single post back in May so I guess you could say that I haven’t actually quit writing.
(But you’ve already clicked the link and are reading the post so the bait worked, right? Might as well stick around for the rest.) 😎
In fact, I’ve doubled down on the writing because the latest project that has been keeping me so incredibly busy has been…
…writing my first book!
SvelteKit Up and Running
That’s right! An entire book made out of paper and ink like they used to have back in the ye olden days. Of course, there will be digital copies for you technology enthusiasts as well. The book is titled SvelteKit Up and Running: Building High Performance Web Apps with a Next Generation Framework. It is obviously about SvelteKit, the highly performant web application meta framework from the creators of Svelte. I wrote it because I wanted to give others the resource I wish I had when I was learning how to build web apps with Svelte and SvelteKit.
As of this writing, the book is currently trending #3 on Amazon! How wild is that?
If you’re interested in getting a copy (and I hope you are), it’s available for pre-order now at https://packt.link/bVAyJ! The book is scheduled for release on July 28th, 2023.
If you’re curious about what it takes to write a book, the process behind it, how I got started, and lessons I learned, then be sure to subscribe to this site’s RSS feed, follow me on Telegram, or find me in the Fediverse. I’ll be posting more updates as well as outlining my experience throughout the entirety of this project!
