Embedded Gists in a Flexbox Layout: Too Soon?

I’ve been tidying up a bit around here and (for the most part) restructured the entire style layer of Monday By Noon to be both mobile-first and Flexbox based. I’m officially smitten with Flexbox and use it quite a bit now. I got caught up on an issue as I was updating existing content, specifically the code […]

The Gentle Art of Patch Review

Open source is wicked hard. It’s difficult on a number of levels, most of them social if we’re honest. It’s really difficult to express emotion as text. Whether that be in an email, a Slack channel, a Trac ticket or Github issue. There are times when someone may mean well and it comes across all […]

I just installed this plugin to give it a whirl. I’m not sure how directly useful it will prove over time, and in fact may be more distracting than not, but I’ve gotten good about doing diff reviews before every commit and I’m hoping this adds a ‘glance’ level to help that process even more. […]

Linkmarklet at version 0.4

My linkblogging plugin Linkmarklet has been updated to version 0.4! I lost steam on this plugin after writing the first version because I had just started writing these Asides and wasn't quite sure how far to take it. I wasn't even sure I'd continue posting them.

They’ve got such a talented team over there and it’s turned into one of my most trafficked sites. This most recent change is wicked awesome.

amsul/pickadate.js. I like making note of projects like these not only for future use but also inspiration and education. Date pickers seem to go through seasons, and it’s as though they’re on an upswing lately with a few new repos cropping up. I like the UI of this, but one thing I’d try to work […]

GitHub & Emergent Culture By Design

GitHub & Emergent Culture By Design | Alex Hillman. GitHub is an inspirational company to say the least. They seemingly came out of nowhere and as of a few days ago they’re host of 4MM git repositories. They’re a great company to keep an eye on for many reasons, and from the outside they seem […]
