You can technically be sworn into the presidency on anything. Doesn't have to be a Bible. What would you be sworn in on?

Just a quick note to those in the @eleven_ty community: if someone doesn’t like Eleventy—that’s okay! We grow from constructive criticism and should welcome it. But as a community we will not tolerate any aggressive messaging to any critics, whether in public or private.

JS framework (developer)s inventing CSR, realising it was a misfire, and then *rebranding ‘websites’ as SSR* is a level of spin that a disgraced politician would kill for.

Still a fantastic little detail that matters. Vocalizer.js helps others pronounce your name correctly. (via @ajaykarwal) Blog post atifaz.am/blog/vocalizer-hel… GitHub github.com/atifazam/vocalize…

As a once-and-likely-future vendor of transpilers, I think about this a lot. The TypeScript's and JSX's of the world are not chained to the back-compat firmaments the way languages and platforms are, and taking bets on them is something we should _culturally_ discourage.
Replying to @slightlylate
If your tool comes with a transpiler in the default toolchain, it's a distributed liability whose costs you are externalizing onto unsuspecting teams that probably can't afford it.

I finally finished my display for my LEGO Saturn V rocket! It’s a custom-built acrylic stand with Adafruit Neopixels running on a 5V Trinket. Mega thanks to @seb_ly for helping get this total Arduino beginner off the ground. Can’t believe how good it turned out! 😊
