🤔 I need to think about something – right now in CAD I pay:
- $14.99/month Apple Music (family)
- $12.99/month Netflix (family – 4x screens)
That’s $335.76/year. Almost a $0.92/day a day for media consumption.
- Prime Music (4x devices)
- Prime Video (2x devices)
- Free shipping (on the hundreds I do spend on Amazon)
is $79.00/year, or $0.22/day.
Why aren’t I an Amazon Prime guy yet?

- Version numbers for register/enqueue are hard coded, and repeated – should be put into a constant so dev’s can hard refresh their visitors resources if needed
- lacks BEM naming
I’ve just started using it, so perhaps I’m being to quick to criticize, so take that with a grain of salt. I will probably submit a pull request for the things I find to help the project grow.
So, if everything continues goes well, I’m considering condensing my starter theme into components for wp-rig’s /dev/pluggable/ folder, and re-creating my personal starter theme with this logic. These will basically serve as helper functions that I expect and need.
I had a project where every single media library image URL needed to be filtered, backend and front end. As far as I’ve found these were the filters for every area: The myplugin_filter_html_image_urls() function peals out images with regex from areas where it’s not just the URL being sent. This function may require verification of … continue reading »
👨🏼💻 Fast key repeat settings & disabling smart quotes, I’ll file this under: things I wish I had done 10 years ago.
