“In this article, we’ll start dipping our toes into the power of CSS Grid by building a couple of common responsive navigation layouts.

“Graham Lebeter, a semi retired businessman working on a University of Edinburgh research project on the rejuvenation of high streets, says the future is not going to be easy, but there are proven methods which can aid rejuvenation.”
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.
