  1. images-responsiver is a simple solution for most responsive images needs

    Is it catchy enough? 😁

    Here's my latest pet project, trying to help people struggling with responsive images: https://nhoizey.github.io/images-responsiver/

    If you use #Eleventy, there's also a plugin: https://github.com/nhoizey/eleventy-plugin-images-responsiver

    Documentation is still a little rough around the edges, but should be enough at least for people already knowing npm and JS.

  2. I wish #GitHub had a different UX for repository deletion if this is a fork.

    Especially if there is nothing useful (no open PR for example) on the repository to delete. "Unexpected bad things" will NOT happen in such case!

    How to read RSS in 2020

    Another big benefit of RSS is that you curate your own feeds. You get to choose what you subscribe to in your feed reader, and the order in which the posts show up. You might prefer to read the oldest posts first, or the newest. You might group your feeds by topic or another priority. You are not subjected to the “algorithmic feed” of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, where they choose the order for you. You won’t miss your friends’ posts because the algorithm decided to suppress them […]

  4. Had to cancel subscription for #Netlify Analytics on https://nho.link because it doesn't support redirects yet, it was almost useless.

    But I wanted to pay for the global Netlify service I use for other sites, so I subscribed for Analytics for another site that already have Google Analytics, let's see how they compare.

  5. My #Eleventy build time is now down to 37 seconds on average! 💪

    A few external data fetches, 1087 HTML pages generated, 1608 simple images <img src…> automatically transformed into responsive <img srcset… sizes…>

  6. I'm wondering, is it really a good idea to share interesting links on the @nice_links separate Twitter account, instead of this one?

    Do you follow:

    1. both @nhoizey and @nice_links?
    2. only @nhoizey, with links in RTs?
    3. only @nhoizey, not interested in such links?

    Eleventy’s New Performance Leaderboard

    Eleventy doesn’t do any special optimizations out of the box to make your sites fast. It doesn’t protect you from making a slow site. But importantly it also doesn’t add anything extra either. This sort of developer empowerment over the final product has seemed to attract an amazing group of performance oriented developers using the project and I am so grateful to every one of you.

    Don’t Let Architecture Astronauts Scare You

    When you go too far up, abstraction-wise, you run out of oxygen. Sometimes smart thinkers just don’t know when to stop, and they create these absurd, all-encompassing, high-level pictures of the universe that are all good and fine, but don’t actually mean anything at all.

  9. Want another reason to hate #AMP?

    A play in three acts:

    @Rich_Harris @atmccann Looks like it’s been fixed! 👍

    By the way, I saw the button isn’t there at all on my Safari on iPhone, is it on purpose on small viewports?

    I wanted to check for the situation in Sweden, where I’m traveling right now. 😅

    @atmccann @Rich_Harris Ooh, just saw I’m on the AMP version… 🤦‍♂️7

    @atmccann @Rich_Harris The button is there and working on the "true" version.

    Sorry for the mistake.

    Users should not have to go through this. This is really bad UX.

    Unfortunately, I guess most end users would blame the New York Times, not Google.

    I have an idea to improve this…

  10. 163 apps to update on my #iPhone. I didn’t know I have so many… 😅

    It might be a good time for some cleaning! 🧼

    The Web is so easier…
