Mustache + React = mess, announcing a secret side project, README generator, lazy loading images with SVG previews.
Table of contents
Blog post scheduled about this topic for Tuesday. Update on Tuesday: I messed up the scheduling. 😂 I had accidentally scheduled How to trigger daily Netlify builds using GitHub Actions for Tuesday; it was meant to be published on Thursday. Well, the Content Recommendations post will be published on Thursday then!
(Well, not secret anymore!)
On Monday, my brother Hannes and I published the first episode of our new podcast Koodikrapula! 😎
Koodikrapula is a Finnish podcast about all things coding. The name means literally "code hangover," which is kind of silly but sounds good-ish in Finnish.
We have been working on the podcast at least since December, albeit at a very slow pace. The first episode that was published on Monday is actually the third or so episode that we have recorded; the first few were just so poor that we never published them.
It feels nice to ship something and to notice how I'm slowly getting better at expressing my thoughts verbally and at not being too nervous during recording.
I have been setting up Koodikrapula.fi to use 11ty + Preact. It has required some fiddling and there are still some rough edges. Someday I'll publish a blog post about it (how to use Preact layouts in 11ty).
I published a blog post earlier this week about another thing that I learned while working on the site: How to use absolute import paths in Node.js.
Plus two quickies:
- readme.so: a free tool for creating README files
- Lazy loading images with inline SVGs for a better thumbnail experience (tweet)
