Any cool buttons and inputs CSS library?
I just need cool / elegant / nice buttons and inputs. If it has some image niceties or something else it's ok.
I did little Googling, ngl; I'll look a bit more later in the day, but I figured maybe someone here may have something interesting to comment.8
I need to practice to get my driving license.
Since I can't ditch work or university, what should I take time from?
- Personal projects.
- Spending time with my girlfriend.
Thank you for the 20-20-20(6) rule.
I think I read about it here, I don't know if it helps but I do feel better.
I recommend it.13
Fuck it, I think I'm going full Kotlin.
Looks SO cute.
I'll use VSCode btw. Only VScode.10
My practice Java teacher sends us songs each Friday (after class).
He's such a cool dude.
Here's the last:
You RESTful API developers / consumers will enjoy it.1
Why isn't already a Font Awesome plugin for VSCode where you can look up icons by keywords like in their website?
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be that hard to make AND it would be pretty useful.
Yes, I would make it if I knew how.
Yes, I hope I can one day make it but I have been running on 5.5 hours of sleep for the last month. Not good for someone used to around 7.2
I was gonna be an Electrical Engineer.
It was the last year of highschool, I was offered a job if I learned how to code.
I did. I loved it. Later I went for Systems Engineering instead.
3 years later I don't regret it, but I'm also starting Electrical Engineering in parallel next year.
Wish me luck, but it's ok if I die I guess.2
I like Firefox a lot.
But it isn't very nice with WPAs, an area of my interest, and downloads PDFs instead of showing them...
Plus I have seen Vivaldi is pretty good for quite some things, like tabs groups and tabs hibernation, has notes, a cool calendar...
But Chrome's console...
It's the only reason I stay with Firefox. (I not only use it at work, but I also use the command line as a pocket JS engine for little scripting and parsing.)
If only I could get selection bracket wrapping and a multiline editor... is it that hard?4
I wanna have a very funny email account so I can actually use it for job applications I'd likely be rejected from. Just in case I ever have one.
Something like firstname.lastname@example.org, or something even more bizarre.
What's your best shot?9
Why THE FUCK would Array.fill(arr) use arr's REFERENCE?
I know it's the default behaviour on parameters but WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT BEHAVIOUR IN THAT METHOD?3
Website from 2011.
Made from a 2007 template.
The database was in latin1.
The template wasn't even a good one, an adapted hotel booking example for a main page, contact, and news.
There were unused variables and weird functions everywhere.
3 years later and I still don't understand how it managed images. Not that I care to look back.
Electron vs Java + a webkit browser for UI?
I'm really intrigued by your opinions.
Btw I'm considering the difference in resulting software quality (perfomance, weight, etc.).
Would the UI defeat the benefits of using Java?2
Last month I discovered my girlfriend created a GitHub account some time ago just because she saw the icon was like a cat in the Discord Connections settings and was curious about what it was.
That's the most adorable dev-related thing that has ever happened to me.10
Something like what the optgroup tag does in Excel.
Why is something this simple so hard to find how to make?
Has anyone tried to export a jar in a simple Java project that has JavaFX (and uses WebView) from VSCode?
When I test the program it works fine but when I export it and execute it I get JavaFX errors.
I met those errors early in development, the fix was adding some parameters to the run command (--add-modules and such), maybe I need to add them to the compile process but I can't find how...
I've been searching all across the web and the rant part of this question is why isn't there an answer anywhere? Has NO ONE tried this before? Really? And if someone did, how did they find the solution!?
My only hope is compiling by hand by now... But there must be a way... I could also use Eclipse but I'd like to know how to do it from VSCode, it would be a shame having to take everything to Eclipse just to compile.3
I've been feeling very bad because I don't think I've been making good use of my free time. So I decided to change.
Looked at my goals, first in line, getting a driver license.
For that, I need to arrange times for practice with my dad.
For that, I need a clean timetable. I had one but teachers are lame and don't respect the times of course.
So, I need to print the new one I already had done.
So I went to the printer.
And it prints awful, everything is pink because it doesn't print yellow.
Fine, let's change the cartridge.
Printer refuses to work, it throws a stuck paper error.
My dad tries to fix it putting fingers inside. Nothing.
We suspect it's the new cartridge, change the new cartridge chip with the one the old one had. Printer fooled.
It still doesn't work. Stuck paper.
My dad admits he felt he broke something when he reached inside the printer..
We had to disassemble it and fix the broken part.
Now it works again.
It still doesn't print yellow.
We'll have get it fixed or get a new one.
I guess I have to draw my timetable by hand...
Sucks, I made it using html and flex. Every 1fr was 5'.
I'll make a gist if anyone is curious about it.1
I went to a technical highschool and was gonna be an electrical engineer.
In fact, I'm starting Electrical Engineering next year.
But I'm not gonna be an electrician anymore.
I'm more powerful now.
For anyone that has used or is using repl.it, I'm thinking about using it for a project at uni.
The project is a Java program with a HTML, CSS, JS interface.
If I open my project as a Java project in repl.it, is there a way to just run the HTML? It'd be stupid to run the whole app just to debug the frontend...1
What would be the most semantic option for a domain if it's just a personal space? .com means commerce, .net means networking services, I think space means... space, the sky... and it's a bit long... .dev? .xyz?
Should I just forget about this and either go with a regular .com or something cheaper I find?12
First chart library:
Perfect, but when you hide it, change tabs, come back and show them they freaking explode. Stupid bug, not ideal, I don't have time for this, move on.
Second chart library:
Cool, cute, but why doesn't it update? Wait, why did this one disappear? Why doesn't it ever appear again? Wtf? It's just like the others...
Do I really have to make my own chart library?2
Any good free HTML5-CSS3 visualization tool for Java Swing?
I did my research and gave up (tried 3, 1 was paid and 2 didn't work) ended up using JFreeChart, but the Grid Bag Layout is giving me some headaches, if you have any idea, you're welcome.1
