๐Ÿค”ย 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.

Amazon Prime:

  • 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?

๐Ÿ“ I fear custom designs that use Gutenberg as a page builder will have blocks riddled with fragile class names for reusable fine tuning. Things like padding-top--100

๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ After being a loyal Safari user for the last decade, I’m moving to Chrome for one and only one reason: I can keyboard navigate tabs with opt + shift + โ†โ†’ย just like Atom, Hyper, and every other good piece of software.

๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ Now that all of that is sorted out and setup, and as the summer winds down, I think I’ll be rededicating my side-energy-efforts into Sword Insights. The plugin with so much potential.

โšกย Two days without internet (technician for neighbour messed up our wires), was still able to work (and distraction-free too boot!). Extremely grateful forย https://kapeli.com/dash, my localย 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).

๐Ÿ•น 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.

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

๐Ÿ”ช 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.

๐Ÿคฎ 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).
