Two days without internet (technician for neighbour messed up our wires), was still able to work (and distraction-free too boot!). Extremely grateful for, my local 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, 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 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, 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:

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.

Incase nothing I say makes sense, here’s the translator:
