Long build times for the web limit productivity and is a source of frustration.

What if you could create and deploy websites *without* a build step? 🤔

Not sure who needs to hear this today, but remember, your local public library benefits from being used! Usage statistics are how librarians argue for funding! By using this shared service more, you are making it BETTER for everyone else!

It's the glory of the commons, not the tragedy of the commons. Go to the library!!!

I sent two PRs for #Takahē today. It was fun to implement both and think about usability & accessibility. 🙂

📣📣📣 Book announcement 📣📣📣

I wrote a book called "Leading developers"!

Most books out there cover leadership in the context of a larger organisation where leaders operate within an existing leadership framework. The goal of my book is to help you *build your own leadership framework*.

You can read it online for free or buy it here:

It's just 5 dollars on launch day!

So I got my instance back online (thanks MUSTARDTIGER), so now begins the long fight to get things to start posting again to my inbox. I don't really know what to do with some instances.

I guess I'll start with creating some content, and hopefully things might start working again?

Oh, super nice lib, want to play around with it and make some nice map plots

EDIT: the owner has suspended the service, stating: "indefinitely [suspended]. Valid concerns were raised and I don't have the energy to rebuild it the right way."

Will do a write-up on this later.

Original post (shortened):


Threadstodon is a simple and clean toll to unroll threads into an easy-to read format

Works exactly like you expect: give the thread URL, and you get an clean and easy-to-read formatted page of the thread back, that you can also easily share as well.

I love the fact that those 2 lines from "Zen of Python" come together:

There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.

We do have multiple options to deal with the same problem, but each one is the "one obvious way" for someone in the community.

If you didn't find yours, let's talk and look for it together, or even build it 🙂

I wrote a small post about how Mastodon implements the layer for the Poll functionality.

One nice thing about implementing mastodon compatible features to , like polls support, is that once you get the base working, you have a lot of clients that are able to render it 🙂
