Two days without internet (technician for neighbour messed up our wires), was still able to work (and distraction-free too boot!). Extremely grateful for https://kapeli.com/dash, my local https://brew.sh setup, and having the foresight to prepare for offline situations (even though this was the first time I’ve been internet-less in half a decade).

I’ve just started developing a site using WPRig.io, it’s pretty neat – and it’s really a terrific starter theme that allows modern tooling. It saves a lot of the time with small annoying tasks that typically come with starter-theme development.

The Good:

  • easy browser sync
  • progressive and conditional css loading
  • auto compile, auto image compress
  • drag-n-drop in template files (ie: site needs comments.php, just include in)
  • built in support for cssnext

The Bad

  • There should be a less repetitive way to combine preloading wprig_add_body_style(), registering, and printing stylesheets. Currently you need to add a stylesheet in three different locations to load it properly
  • No solution for code repetition (albeit, thats to be expected with WordPress themes)
  • 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

The Ugly

  • lacks BEM naming
  • missing `defined(“ABSPATH”);` security checks

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.

My “⭐ Today” list in Things.app always becomes my week list. Really need to build the habit of understanding that yes, I intend to do this today, but I won’t get to it.

Starting slicing on two custom themes this week, instead of using my normal starter theme, I’m venturing out of my norm and building one with WPRig.io, the other, a headless photographers site with GraphQL & React.

Really excited to do some fun coding.

Seriously I think I’m allergic to social media. At very least a sensitivity. Regardless, I can’t play along. Wiped my accounts empty (again).

The future, behold! Variable font’s: https://v-fonts.com/

Always thought of Emmet as just creating tags, really enjoying the dynamic creation features!

Fast key repeat settings, I’ll file this under: things I wish I had done 10 years ago.

🤦🏻‍♂️ It turns out tax_query doesn’t work in WordPress’s switch_to_blog(). I think kinda_switch_to_blog() would be more appropriate naming.
