My wife keeps sending me random pictures of our cat rendered as a cuddly toy and I’m here for it.
My response to people sharing npm download graphs:
Gatsby Inc is to Gatsby.js
Vercel is to Next.js
Netlify acquired Gatsby Inc.
I took a peep over at twitter to see what people there were saying about this news:
A big misconception I'm seeing is that Netlify wanted to *own* a react-based framework and join that club, leading to lock-in.
The opposite is true. Netlify already support other open-source frameworks without lock-in or roadmap ownership. Expect that.
And Gatsby is wayyyy bigger than Gatsby.js. ☁️
I've been looking forward to this!
#Netlify's PlanetScale integration adds some very cool capabilities for working with data in your sites and apps.
Nice. The #Netlify Drawer is available on branch deploys too now, if desired.
Gold found in my RSS feeds —
Thanking my lucky RSS stars that no matter how frequently or infrequently @mxbck blogs, I'll see it.
In this post he shares thoughts on why he might be posting less often than before, and give ideas that really chime with me on what might help grease the wheels. Very motivating.
Mulling over if I should share photos here in Mastodon, or if I should post to somewhere like @pixelfed and then occasionally share links to those photos.
A little like how I used to share instagram images on twitter in the old days.
Interesting to see what new habits form for other people too.
Hope to see this balcony and this view again next year.
Movie scenes where somebody sits at a desk and casually plucks a few jellybeans from a glass bowl are the root of jealousy and wonder for me.
How grown up.
Happy new year to everyone except those who prefer their fireworks at home in residential areas.
Lots of love,
all the owners of frightened pets.
Raclette is happening.
Crémant is happening.
Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band is happening.
Not taking any questions at this time.
Pssst. I’ve seen the lineup and it’s stellar.
I maintain that if @eleventy had slick, fashionable, whizz-bang branding and docs that gave off vibes of being even 50% as mature as it is, it would be getting much more of the attention and adoption from bigger players that it deserves.
Same result if @zachleat started dressing like Jony Ive.
Possibly also of there was an 11ty cocktail, but I'm less confident on that one.
Making something which is either rather crafty, or stupidly going to blow up my code and make me look silly.
