Static Site Generators are not for me! My Experience with Jekyll, Hugo and NetlifyCMS

  • Hugo tagged the 'Most Easiest Static Site Generator', It's based on GoLang.
  • The next step was learning about making custom Theme of Hugo!
  • I downloaded a Simple Theme from HugoThemes, and I tried to customize it and I finally did it.
  • I tried to solve it but didn't find any answer so I copy all the /themes files into /layout folder so It became the default style.
  • there was no option available for Static Pages Editing in Layouts Folder and Lot's of other options!
  • I just wanted a static site generator to take my custom theme, make it accessible to edit every part of it by the user on CMS.
  • There were also so many starter templates available, but I have wasted all of my time on Hugo, then I get back to the old and easiest way????

3 major reasons 'The Goldfinch' fails as a movie adaptation

  • Tartt's novel opens the same way the movie does, with the adult Theo in his Amsterdam hotel room.
  • Then there's another small time-jump, and Theo is engaged to Kitsey (a bit of a narrative surprise, just as it is in the movie) even though he appears to feel no real love for her.
  • While its possible Straughan thought teasing out the cause of Theo's mother's death and the presence of the painting in that strange yellow bag was a good way to draw audiences into the story, it winds up cheapening the real reason Tartt's novel was so compelling.
  • At the same time we were lamenting the rush of character beats, the movie feels far too long, making "The Goldfinch" a bit of a cinematic miracle.

How sampling and streaming are changing the future of music

  • This week on The Vergecast, Nilay Patel talks to Dani Deahl, music reporter and host of The Verge’s video series Future of Music.

  • In this episode, you’ll hear some clips from Future of Music, including interviews from the producers of “Despacito” about how they distribute samples for anyone to use in their music and also a preview of an upcoming episode with Charli XCX about how streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music are changing the way songs are made.
  • Command Line delivers daily updates from the near-future.

Black female entrepreneurs receive just 0.0006% of funding. We spoke to the founder of Ruby Love, who raised $15 million, about why.

  • Speaking to Business Insider, Etienne said venture capitalists often didn't take the time to listen to black women founders — but also that female entrepreneurs needed to be proactive about getting into the industry.
  • Now [VCs] see the demand [for femtech]; they see that women did want change but didn't know how to say it.
  • CW: According to research by Harlem Capital, your recent $15 million fundraise is the joint third-largest fundraise of all time for an African-American female entrepreneur.
  • It's kind of like a catch-22: they're trying to save face; they want to [employ more black women].
  • I'm very direct, but you know where I'm coming from, because I have stuff in my head all day long, as I'm sure [is the case] with every entrepreneur or founder.

Do I need a credit card for my side job? In most cases, yes.

  • That includes rideshare drivers, middle schoolers who shovel driveways, craft creators who sell on Etsy, and even item sellers who list their possessions on eBay. Even if you don't get a 1099 or other tax reporting form, you are required by law to track and report your business earnings.
  • If you have an LLC or other registered business entity, keeping your personal and business finances separated in this way helps you avoid piercing the "corporate veil" that protects your personal assets.
  • As long as you use it only for business expenses, a business credit card is an excellent way to pay.
  • If you have a tendency of carrying balances and paying big interest expenses, you should avoid using credit cards for regular purchases.
  • But if you can commit to paying them off in full each month, credit cards are a great tool for business and personal spending.

State management using only React Hooks

  • One of my favorite Hooks so far is useReducer, which allows you to handle complex state updates, and that’s what we’ll be looking at in this article.
  • It allows you to update parts of your component’s state when certain actions are dispatched, and it is very similar to how Redux works.
  • If you’re familiar with how Redux updates the store through reducers and actions, then you already know how useReducer works.
  • In the code snippet above, we have defined an initial state for our component — a reducer function that updates that state depending on the action dispatched — and we initialized the state for our component on line 21.
  • Well, we know how to dispatch an action to update a component’s state, and now we’re going to look at a scenario where the root component’s state will act as the replacement for the Redux store.

The ultimate (getting started) guide to serverless

  • For the past couple of years, I’ve been working with an awesome bunch of people over at Dashbird, where we wake up every day and make serverless technology a bit better by creating solutions for the current problems the serverless community is facing.
  • So while doing uploading functions one by one is ok-ish what you need is a platform that allows you to connect to AWS (or any other service provider) and leverage that to get the most out of everything that serverless technology has to offer.
  • There are lots of different ways to go when picking a serverless framework to work with and besides having over 25000 github stars and being the number one tool for deploying serverless apps, I’d recommend serverless technology because of its cloud-agnostic approach.

#showdevaria-live, accessibility tips 🦮

  • When this happens screen readers usually are not aware, unless we let them know there was an update on the page and that's where aria-live regions come to the rescue.
  • You can see how it works in the video below using a demo I created on CodePen. In this demo I am changing the content of the message box with each click with a random number.
  • You can see that in the assertive aria-live region, the narrator reads the next message as soon as it appears, even if it means it cuts off the previous one.
  • When the user changes the value of the day, the whole date will be read again.
  • We also saw how to hide the text without losing the ability to communicating updates to users, and furthermore, saw how to make the whole area atomically live using aria-atomic.

Schism, a self-hosting Scheme to WebAssembly compiler

  • Schism is an experimental self-hosting compiler from a subset of R6RS Scheme to WebAssembly.
  • Now that self-hosting has been achieved, development can shift towards supporting a more complete subset of Scheme.
  • This includes implementing garbage collection, possibly using the WebAssembly GC proposal, dynamic linking and code generation, etc.
  • Also, until larger parts of the GC proposal are implemented in WebAssembly engines, the run-time also has some routines to allocate memory using the host (usually the JavaScript GC), to enable garbage collection.
  • To add a new feature, the usual flow is to start by adding a small test that uses it.
  • Once the feature is implemented, then the Stage1 and Stage2 compilers should pass the test.
  • Note that you cannot use the new feature in the compiler until it works in stage2.
