Look Ma, No Media Queries! Responsive Layouts Using CSS Grid (CSS-Tricks)
In this article, we'll start dipping our toes into the power of CSS Grid by building a couple of common responsive navigation layouts. It's easier than what you may think, and since CSS Grid was built with responsiveness in mind, it'll take less code than writing media queries all over the place. Let’s do this!

I might switch my current gallery code to use CSS Grid instead of Bootstrap’s “Card” system (built on Flexbox).

CSS has come such a long way since I started using it earnestly, circa 2001.

And the resulting photograph. I’m not happy with how this model turned out in the end, thanks to trying to fix some avoidable mishaps, but I’m taking it as a learning experience.

I’ve just posted the second how-to article to IndieWeb Textpatternpreparing your site for IndieAuth.

This one took a bit longer to write than I anticipated. IndieAuth is a slightly weird concept to describe and write about in easy to understand terms. I’m trying to keep the level I’m pitching IndieWeb Textpattern at to be pretty low, so I found myself going back and revising things several times. On the plus side, writing about these topics is reinforcing how they work in my mind. Practice and documenting things have always been my best teacher ?

While I was researching the article I discovered that IndieLogin doesn’t necessarily check for an authorization_endpoint link at URLs marked as rel="me" – something which was unexpected behaviour. I’d planned to use this site as my example authentication provider, but couldn’t and reverted to using Github. I’ve added this to my list of things to investigate.

If you’re interested, here’s the current content plan for the site, although I’ll be adding more articles as I re-familiarise myself with developing Textpattern plugins, and open up more integrations.

Can’t remember the last time I painted an Ultramarine. Possibly 20 years ago! Experimenting with some of the techniques I’ve been learning on the @alfonso_giraldes_banshee and @thechromaticcircle painting academy Patreon. I definitely need more practice, and this needs refinement, but it was nice to have a brush in my hand after weeks of nothing but work!

Putting paint brush to miniature for the first time in weeks, with something just for fun, rather than for the tabletop. I kind of feel like I needed this. Today I discovered I love painting with a size 3 brush!

I’m not saying I’m planning out an Ash Wastes Tribes “counts-as Genestealer Cults” army… but I’m also not saying I’m not planning one… ?
