Embedded Gists in a Flexbox Layout: Too Soon?

Published 2 years 1 month ago on May 1, 2016

I’ve been tidying up a bit around here and (for the most part) restructured the entire style layer of Monday By Noon to be both mobile-first and Flexbox based. I’m officially smitten with Flexbox and use it quite a bit now. I got caught up on an issue as I was updating existing content, specifically the code […]

The Gentle Art of Patch Review

Published 2 years 10 months ago on July 15, 2015

Open source is wicked hard. It’s difficult on a number of levels, most of them social if we’re honest. It’s really difficult to express emotion as text. Whether that be in an email, a Slack channel, a Trac ticket or Github issue. There are times when someone may mean well and it comes across all […]

I just installed this plugin to give it a whirl. I’m not sure how directly useful it will prove over time, and in fact may be more distracting than not, but I’ve gotten good about doing diff reviews before every commit and I’m hoping this adds a ‘glance’ level to help that process even more. […]

This is pretty awesome. I posted earlier about my enjoyment of the GitHub profile updates but this takes it a step further. Hubtime is a project that lets you generate graphs about what you’ve been up to on GitHub. What’s really neat is that it’s all a command line utility and you can generate a […]

The scroll monitor allows you to receive events when elements enter or exit the viewport. It does this using watcher objects, which watch an element and trigger events. Watcher objects also contain information about the element they watch, including the element’s visibility and location relative to the viewport. The scroll monitor was designed to be […]

Create and delete branches – GitHub Blog

GitHub is doing more and more to make their desktop client obsolete. I think that’s awesome. They’re really doing a great job lowering the barrier to entry for people to get into git. I recall first forcing myself (and my team) to get into a workflow using svn and it was a constant barrage of […]

Linkmarklet at version 0.4

Published 5 years 5 months ago on January 9, 2013

My linkblogging plugin Linkmarklet has been updated to version 0.4! I lost steam on this plugin after writing the first version because I had just started writing these Asides and wasn't quite sure how far to take it. I wasn't even sure I'd continue posting them. Here we are about a year later and after […]

Introducing Contributions · GitHub Blog. It’s no secret that GitHub is constantly doing a ton of good. They’ve got such a talented team over there and it’s turned into one of my most trafficked sites. This most recent change is wicked awesome. I discover new developers all the time on GitHub, and updates like these make […]

amsul/pickadate.js. I like making note of projects like these not only for future use but also inspiration and education. Date pickers seem to go through seasons, and it’s as though they’re on an upswing lately with a few new repos cropping up. I like the UI of this, but one thing I’d try to work […]

GitHub & Emergent Culture By Design

Published 5 years 7 months ago on October 16, 2012

GitHub & Emergent Culture By Design | Alex Hillman. GitHub is an inspirational company to say the least. They seemingly came out of nowhere and as of a few days ago they’re host of 4MM git repositories. They’re a great company to keep an eye on for many reasons, and from the outside they seem […]
