So 10 components into the svelte project I'm working on, I thought it would be a good idea to go back and clean up everything and maybe compare some of the logic from the first few to the second, see if there wasn't something that would work better that was picked up along the way.
Went well enough I suppose, only took a day or so and now everything is all nice, neat and somewhat commented. Ok cool, all gravy.
Except now having finished that well over 5 hours ago, I've done nothing but give the app's home screen a passing glance as I swiped between the devrant and discord windows I have open.
Of course that's not to imply that I'm intentionally taking a break from it, oh no. I even pause occasionally between swipes to contemplate what the next task should be. Then 5 mins later I give up on the decision and finish swiping to wherever I was going when I stopped.
Not sure if it's that the next few things I've got in mind are a bit more complicated compared to what I'm ordinarily attempting to accomplish or just that, now that the code I've already written is pretty and back to working again, I'm afraid to touch anything else.
At least I've got something besides frustrations with the auto industry to rant about I guess. Pseudo rant at least, not really sure where all this rambling falls on the scale tbh.
Probably even lower, when I add that I think I finally cleared up all of my confusion with .this. Having done so I must say, my first significant amount of experience with it being through react was probably not the best starting place. Not that I didn't know what it was already by definition, just that using it with react components on the regular vs some initial familiarity with applying it to general html seems to have led to confusion as to when its possible to used declared props and when your stuck with the attributes the element has by default. Something that's a little clearer now that I don't have all the jsx floating around to wonder about as well.
On a different note, one mildly related to the original topic tho, everyone is always joking about it not being a good idea to code when tired and loosing the daily struggle with the eyelids. How come no one ever mentions how that danger magnifies tenfold if you make the attempt using vim as your editor ?
You don't just add/remove random characters and spaces, we're talking entire sections and files here. One minute you have a functioning app, the next, your compiler is telling you that your missing 30 prop declarations and to have fun figuring out whether its a binding, import or entire motherf'ng component that it can't find.
I mean sure when its one or two, not that big of a deal, but 30? I imagine at that point the thing is doing good to just to list them in the order that they don't show up in. Then again maybe not, it is a computer after all.
Still I know if i was a computer, I'd spit them out in all kinds of crazy orders just for spite. Try to make me do extra work because of your royal fuck up, you gotsta be certified cuckoo.
Buuuut in any case, now that all that is off my chest, let me get back to staring at a blank screen. Or blankly starring at the screen rather. I'm running out of things to waste time rambling on about anyway 🙄6
Oh my god I am such a fucking idiot. 2 full days, 3 different plugins, and god knows how many separate rollup configurations just to finally figure out that it was a missing language type in my app's style tag this whole goddamn time.2
So I think KitKat is jealous of Karen. She hears her voice, she immediately jumps up in my lap and starts headbutting me in an attempt to get me to pet her. If I try to ignore her and keep working, she starts to bite.
And it doesn't matter if she's here in the same room or asleep on the window sill at the opposite end of the house.
For those of you curious as to who Karen is, she's the voice programmed into my mac's accessibility features that reads in an Australian accent 🤷🏻♂️6
So I need some advice. Friend of mine did a logo for their relative's local restaurant and now their wanting a basic info page.
I figure on the frontend I'll go with bootstrap for now (zero patience for a cms build) and have them give me a general idea of what their wanting to spend. But as usual I'm lost when it comes to hosting.
Worse lately I've been so concerned with wrapping my head around the microservice setups, I haven't kept with how any of the current "simple" static hosting packages stack up to one another.
Just a quick glance I've found a couple freemium "serverless" models but the pricing on them seem like they're more for low traffic developer showcasing rather than a business with a quite a few patrons pulling up the togo menu every day (still waiting to find out what the expected will be, "local" is east coast several states away). Of course again I don't know that for sure, clueless remember.
I figure if all goes well we can talk about starting to add in some functionality later that requires a backend, making migration to a more extensive service and providing long term support a more worthwhile venture, but for now I'm just cutting them a deal that will hardly worth it's time just to get the ball rolling. Not just on this but as a freelance endeavor in general.
That said, while it will be a nice & easy starter project and possible portfolio piece later, it's not something I want to be married too long term if this is all they ever ask for.
In any case advice is much appreciated.24
Still working out where my favorite would be but my cousin's new workplace seems to be pretty ideal. They got six of these desks in the week before he got there and the lucky bastard managed to snag one.12
Ok so I know we said no new frameworks but technically I don't think this is a framework, rather a compiler maybe... (🙄) but in any case we were wondering are we going to get real web dev points for svelte because we really, really, really like it so far, but Elvis is worried that using it is cheating. I told him to hush and just roll with it but he still has morals so what can I do 🤷🏻♂️2
Yes we found your listing on the internet, is this car wash that is right there by the gas station on XX highway?
No ma'am I work on location but I'm currently shut down for the moment

You've got mail
Finish signing up to get your business on google.
We're here to help you with the process. Let get you signed up....
Sooo what's another alternative to proton mail, I'm tired of waiting around on support to get back to me.
Not specifically their fault, it's only been a day, I generally just have very little patience for these things to begin with and keychain has already pushed it to the limit this week.
Figure I'll at least shop around a little while I wait since this account is only a month old and I'm already running into issues.13
You ever have one of those days where you have so much to go off about that just the thought of trying to type it all out is utterly exhausting?
Yea todays one of those days. But at least it's fucking raining 🙄5
Thoughts on a feature, notification reminders.
The a.d.d. people will know what I'm talking about. Though they may just comment and not upvote.
Some may even upvote and and forget to comment then lose the notif entirely because that menu only scrolls down so far....
Also if I was supposed to get you a link for one of a number of things, please respond here as well 🙄2
God I so wish I could shoot my internet right now...
I know, I know, that statement makes absolutely no sense. Neither does it right now.
And you know I really feel some of you guys had something to do with it. Was working with the hardware guys really so bad?
I can punch my monitor, smother my computer down, hell I can even smash the little mouse's feet in. But no you guys got a go and build the internet into a non-physical thing.
And sure we could shoot the router or run the satellite over with a tractor, but the last time we did that, they wouldn't honor our warranty claim so we found ourselves paying out the contract without any internet... 🤯
So this time we went with a cell provider that, thankfully, decided to start offering unlimited with no contract...
Just now if only they would use some of that money were paying them to beef up the system a little bit 🙄21
What is your role,
As a teacher, would you use a student tracking system to teach your class the tutorials in this website?
Who thinks Jase and I should start a band. Call it jAsE_jAsE and M1sf3t....

Trying to keep up with your notifications with a shit isp when your friends just woke up on the other side of the world and you've been on devRant all night...
Is it just me or is it completely pointless to check the inbox at gmail and not just go directly to the spam folder?4
ok seriously, wtf cspire. You've got the same two bars of lte that you had yesterday, how did you go from two mbps to this....7
The original dark souls worth 10 bucks? gamestop is doing a 2 for 20 thing on preowned 360 titles, found it and skyrim lengendary edition. They've got dark souls 2 as well, but its only $5 oddly enough so I wouldn't be getting anything off.
There's also soul caliber 5 and one of the injustices but I forget which one. Fable 2 goty but its just over the price cap...
God we've got to get a new system soon 🙄7
Random thought for today:
Does negative publicity have the same affect on the software industry as it does the entertainment industry🤔4

So since I bitched the other day about fast food workers, I feel like I would be remiss should I not mention those that are behind the counter doing some good in the world.
So without further ado, here's to all those unsung heroes out there working "fry-side", quietly sticking an extra chicken finger to the man one 3pc. combo at a time.
A feature you guys as developers should consider working in as a bug should you ever be tasked with automating this noble process.6
Just pulled up to the gas station, it's lunchtime, easter sunday here in the south. The place is packed, everyone is out in their best church clothes, freshly groomed, on their way to and from. Not this one...
Nope, I hop outa the truck in loud ass neon yellow gym shorts, sandals to match, hair and beard looking like the resurrection of christ. Thus is the state of my give a fuck right now.
Bout the only decent piece of clothing I have on is a hoodie with a giant army logo on it. If that sounds a but confused because easter occurs in april, don't look at me, ask the weather 🙄23
