Morning reading: "Enabling Modern JavaScript on npm"

I never really thought about how much of a project's node_modules is imported in ES5. The performance overhead is frustrating, but in another way it's kind of a great problem to have: we can start removing our legacy adapters and shims, and we have to figure out how.

I know that it's not cool to get excited about e-mail anymore, but I am about the Inkscape mailing lists moving to a modern Mailman with Hyperkitty.

New lists are here: lists.inkscape.org/

A surprising amount of work to get that all working, but it is, and we've published the Ansible scripts here: gitlab.com/inkscape/infra/serv

Responsive design isn't "we work on desktop and iphones" it means working on device without knowing in advance what you are delivering too.

Some screens are tall and thin, some are square and small. Others are large but viewed from 6' away other screens change shape on the fly.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About inputmode. Unlike changing the type of the form, inputmode doesn’t change the way the browser interprets the input — it instructs the browser which keyboard to display, and this is really useful!! css-tricks.com/everything-you-

"Code caching for JavaScript developers" by Leszek Swirski v8.dev/blog/code-caching-for-d

I'm glad Chrome finally wrote something public about their bytecode cache. This is one of the biggest inside-baseball perf optimizations that browsers do, but web developers aren't very aware of.

State of JavaScript survey: 2018 wasn't too different from 2017, so we can't say that "the next big thing is this new state management library created by a 17-year-old Vietnamese high-schooler in her spare time. "

Maybe so, but that teenage hacker exists somewhere and is building something way cooler than another state management library.

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

Accessibility is not a “React Problem”, as always the issue isn't the tool but what people do with it. You can build accessible pages using React but for that you need to understand the basics of semantic and HTML netlify.com/blog/2019/02/25/ac

Here's a thought-provoking read from the CTO of Basecamp, advocating for more sustainable, humane business as an alternative to "exponential growth."
