22nd week of 2021
Kayaking and pizzaing, finished my first ClojureScript project, SVG squircle generator.

We went kayaking with our team (minus three people) on Tuesday. Here's a photo that I took using my phone's (Unihertz Jelly) potato camera:
And here's a quick selfie that I snapped for my wife (nice picture 😂):
It was my first time kayaking. It was quite fun but also surprisingly effortful as I had to use my legs to maintain balance and my arms and upper torso to move the kayak forward.
Afterwards we went eating. Some chose fancy foods like entrecôte, but I chose an exotic pizza. 😋 No picture of it, sadly, but here are the ingredients:
- tomato sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- spreadable Nduja salami
- hot Spianata salami
- blood grapefruit marmalade
- parmesan cheese
- virgin olive oil.
It wasn't very delicious, but I wanted something exotic, and it was exotic. ¯\(ツ)/¯
I can definitely recommend trying out kayaking. And pizzaing too!
For the past two weeks, I have been working on my first ClojureScript project called Need for Speed.
It's a very simple web app with only a few form inputs and only one screen/page. So nothing fancy, but it was still quite challenging. 🥴 Many things could be improved, but I'm going to leave it like that for now.
I definitely want to use Clojure and ClojureScript more in the future. 🙂
I spent so much time on my ClojureScript project that I didn't have time to write about any learnings. 🤷♂️ But I have one or two waiting for the next week!
A Squircle, unlike an element with border-radius set, has no straight edges at all. The shape is a continuous curve! Apple love this trick and use it in both physical and digital design.
I love how squircles look! 🤩 Though funnily my brother doesn't like them, apparently because at some point they have been popular in Android as well so he has already received an overdose of them. 🤔
