Google's new (?) Not Found animation

Google has a nice little animation when you end up on a search result with no results. It’s a little blue monster fishing. Click it and it will start fishing for something. A fish, or a tin of fishes or, well, look for yourself.

Just another New Year

Every year my feeds (yes, I am still reading my news via feeds) are filled with New Years resolutions and Old Year reviews. I myself dabbled in it a while, but for the past 10 years I gave up on this.

Some mellow music to let the year run out to. No more programming for at least 10 hours ;)

Earth's Black Box

It looks like earths climate catastrophe now has it’s own black box. Earth’s Black Box will record every step we take towards this catastrophe.

Hyper Shell

There is nothing, you can’t do with Electron, apparently. Newest proof is Hyper, a shell inside of Electron (you read that right). Developed by Vercel, the app is theme-able and extensible by plugins, like any other Electron app. It doesn’t look though like any init scripts like .

You got to…

… subscribe to Stefan Judis’ Newsletter (click this link, load his site, scroll to the footer and subscribe). Trust me. It’s good. Weekly. His topics touch everything web development related and there is never an issue from which I don’t learn something new.

Converting frontmatter in GoHugo

Some days ago I realised, that I keep all my configurations for GoHugo in the TOML format, while using YAML for the frontmatters in my content folder. That did not seem right ;) so I changed those too to TOML.

Learning to git with git

I like to learn things by doing them. Recently I found a couple of interesting game formats that teach certain aspects of full stack developer’s life by playing a game. Let’s play? Oh My Git! is a game to learn Git, by using Git.

Well… that's a unique… logo?

I had a weird reaction (““well… that’s a unique logo?”) to my really great weblog logo above recently, so I thought I might as well explain it.

Print ordinal date suffixes (1st/2nd/3rd/4th) in GoHugo

Golangs $date.Format is unable to add ordinal suffixes to dates (like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th). Let’s not judge Golang for that. The following is how I remedy this issue: layouts/partials/func/formatOrdinalDate.html go-html-template COPY 1{{- $format := .format -}} 2{{- $date := .

CSP vs. syntax highlighting in GoHugo

If you are using the code styling functionality of GoHugo then you might have stumbled over a common issue when you are using Content Security Policies (CSP) and inline styles. Using CSPs is the proper way these days to secure your site code but it is considered (in the realm of CSPs) bad style to have your style sheets or JavaScript inlined into your page.

Giscus Module for GoHugo

Giscus is a new star on the comment systems for static website generators orbit. It is inspired by the wonderful utterances and uses Github Discussions to save comments. It’s open source, easily configurable, themeable, translatable, and you can host it on your own server (it’s JavaScript based) if you like.

Game Off 2021 Part I

Game Off 2021 is this years iteration of a regular game development contest hosted by itch.io. I decided a while back to develop some form of program or game just because I can. This is the perfect opportunity to force myself to do so and I’ll program a little game throughout the month of November.
