I'm starting to think this is the single most important >simple< political idea of the moment. I might have to write an article... https://twitter.com/bethsawin/status/1223611660621041669

I feel that when I put a thing on Twitter, I should put it here too #Homemaker:
Thanks to lots of help, this is now pretty much what I hoped it would be: A big list of patterns from A Pattern Language that can be easily shortened to a small list, it is a single portable file, and prints very nicely.
What I think this needs (and I don't often ask for hep, but this is way out of my ability set) is some script that adds [-]/[+] actions to each of the patterns - so you can go through the document and reduce the set to just the subset pattern language you actually need.
Then when the user prints/PDFs the file, all the unwanted patterns vanish completely and you end up with a good looking and *short* reference document.
That's it, I don't think it needs anything fancy like persistence etc. END/
But, I have this thing, it is a single HTML page consisting of the headings and summaries from A Pattern Language, scraped from a defunct website years ago:
Importantly it has all the cross-references as internal links, so it is a great companion to the book (though obviously all the explanatory text is missing) 3/
The idea of the book, is that, although there are 253 patterns, most building projects only require a handful of patterns. So you are supposed to construct a subset pattern language for each project and use that.
Unfortunately A Pattern Language is 1200 pages long and very unwieldy, so this doesn't work so well as a practical matter. 2/
It is basically an interactive companion to Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language.
This book has 253 'patterns', each one a particular aspect of the built environment at different scales, all extensively cross-referenced. Together they describe a humane, sustainable world. 1/
