Links For You

Another weekend and another set of links for yall to enjoy. Yesterday my wife and I drove our eldest to NOLA and the airport there as he begins a ten-month excursion teaching in Germany. I'm so incredibly excited for him and I know he is going to do incredible. Meanwhile, we're still waiting for the 90+ temperature days to come to an end. At this point, I don't expect that before October at the earliest.

Building a QR Coder Web Component

It's been a hot minute or so since I played with web components, mainly because I've been re-evaluating when I think it best makes sense to use them. One idea I've been chewing over lately is that progressive enhancement could really be the sweet spot for components, something I really got into earlier this year when I shared a sortable table component that, if it failed to load, wouldn't break anything.

Fun With Front Matter: Part 4 - Featured Posts

It's been a few days since my last post in this series. I'd like to blame something in specific but honestly, it's just life. Today's tip will - again - be short and sweet but hopefully helpful. The idea of a "featured" post is that there may be content that, no matter the age or view count in your stats, you want to highlight. It could be your first blog post. A post announcing a new job or life event. Or anything really. How can we use front matter to support this?

Links For You

Welcome to another collection of links, and for today, a very "component" flavored set of links. I've been really interested in web components the past few months (you can peruse my articles on the topic) and lately there's been a lot of writing on the topic. That's been tied to chatter online as well, but one of the reasons I started this series of posts was to help people find things they may have missed on social media. Personally, I'm finding my own thoughts on the subject changing as well. I still like them, but I want to keep in mind the user experience on a site that uses them. As a web developer, I shouldn't sacrifice the end-user experience for my own developer experience. I think I'm most interested in cases where web components can progressively enhance functionality. Anyway, here's our links.
