My friend, also called Alex, showed how he was doing more of the things he wanted to — piano, friends, and a course — and avoiding things he didn’t want to.
To do this he was using a spreadsheet.
We don’t have awareness of time (and everything is built to capture attention).
If someone asked you to do something, you would likely do it for them. Motivation isn’t even a thought.
But when you give yourself a task, it’s much harder.
There is likely less definition of the task and how to complete it, less accountability as you’re only cheating yourself and less urgency. This hits your life balance. Suddenly, your doing more work than anything else, you neglect the things that make you happy and you burn out.
I started tracking my hours — every hour of the…
The API is the hole.
In reality the shape is not a triangle but a structure of data (X contains Y) and format of the data (Y should be a number with no decimal places).
If you are working with an API, you are creating the block, they are managing the hole.
Things can change in three ways with APIs:
This could be for things like performance improvements, small tweaks in method, or fixing simple bugs.
The short of it is that…
I need to compare aibnb’s better, but airbnb has missed this step. I am making something to fix it until airbnb do.
I love airbnb. It is a beautiful idea that is making access to accommodationalojamiento so much better, directlydirecto and indirectly.
Moreover, it is a beautiful experience. Easy search, easy filtering, great visual workflow of decisionsdecisiones and super easy representations of changing decisions:
When searching for things, we tend to work in a double diamond model:
I use mongoDB and the MERN stack more generally while I am building:
I couldn’t recommend the stack enough — especially if you are new to learning to code.
I spotted a bug with my most recent release…
It was appearing at the top of everywhere for everyone…
My first though was, “Oh good lord, no, not more timezone pain or something”. Turns out no. After a lot of hair pulling, I by chance spotted this:
If you use React (or others) for an app that calls a db for data, you will likely already know to use
In fact, I was using
await regularly in everyhour.xyz as it is so simple, easy and readable.But there was one page specifically that was awful for loading especially with the most heavy users — including myself.
In short, this page was showing analytics of users record…
I believe Progressive Web Apps are a fantastic bit of tech that many people miss and hence way over-complicate their initial web app.
If you want to…
…you may want to try building a PWA.
PWA freezes app
PWA giving old page
PWA not being replaced
What on earth is a service worker
Let me help.
A progressive web app can allow users to download your website onto their phone easily, cache page resources, and even give users notifications. This is all powered by service workers.
A service worker is a piece of code that levels up your site by being able to do caching resources of your page (crazy fast refresh and loading times), monitor push for notifications, install onto mobile phones and more…
They are easy to implement, but can cause a great…
I used to think it was magic, turns out it is just HTML tags. Now Facebook will now preview my website’s URL link in a pretty way with a description, a title, and an image to help convince people to click!
