Today? More new React stuff: added a top-level ErrorBoundary and learned a smidge about lazy-loading, code-splitting, and Suspense (This necessitated a loading Spinner. As usual, I searched and grabbed a fun, relatively-simple one.)

Now I’m back on the server end trying to expand its posting abilities beyond mere “h=entry”s.

another super-productive day. more tests, better look-n-feel (though I am still terrible at look-n-feel).

(Also added several new benches to my ongoing project: photos of the dog on all the benches in this suburb. 🤣)

Hello! from the 0.1.0 alpha of my standalone React micropub-authoring component. There was probably no reason to code my own mini-CMS from scratch but here we are. As I said yesterday, the main goals are

  1. to learn how to use React Hooks, and
  2. to finally split infinitives take testing seriously.

Today was the most productive day I’ve had in months — just sitting at the kitchen table.

today: extracting the panel of my dashboard project into its own standalone thingie.

Forcing myself to do 2 things, here: (1) use React’s new Hooks API (immediately valuable. neat!), and (2) create comprehensive(-ish) tests.

I think have completely overhauled the auth mechanism on my dashboard project to the point where it not only doesn’t leak my info, it might even be usable by anyone with indie-authentication and a micropub endpoint. Maybe I can turn that React component into its own ’thing.’

3 years of coding in JS & Node and I just got app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, "../public"))); correct on the first try, without hitting docs to remember how it works. 🎉

I read about “sandwich sudoku” in Alex Bello’s puzzle column last night and I’m already hooked.

Heard from an old friend today who mentioned that the country club in our hometown is closing and will likely become school/parkland.

Conflicted… tons of 80s memories: 🏊🏻‍, 🏌🏻‍,a home away from home, my sister got married there… but mostly? I hated it! Good riddance!
