slice, destructuring, rest operators, and spread operators.
There are also looping methods like
17 different flavours! 😱.
I want to document how I choose the array methods I use. This should help you understand how to pick methods.
I was able to create an Eleventy + Snowpack + Sass + PostCSS setup that works pretty well. I want to share this setup with you in this article.
I managed to get a decent Eleventy + Snowpack + Sass setup in a couple of hours. I’ll share this setup next week. But first, I want to share some things I noticed about Snowpack.
I talked about the key bindings I used to switch between tabs and panels last week. This week, I want to share some wicked shortcuts I use for the Integrated Terminal.
They’re really sweet. 😘.
Let today be the day where you learn to think like a programmer.
Since I code on both Windows and Mac, I want my Visual Studio Code shortcuts to be interchangeable on both systems.
So I dug deep into Visual Studio Code’s keyboard shortcuts for both systems and made my personal customisations.
I want to share these customisations with you so you can use them to rock at Visual Studio Code too 😃.
When I got my Windows computer, the first thing I did was to set up Windows so it mirrors the writing system I had on Mac. I also mirrored Mac’s modifiers as much as possible.
Then, I set up my Windows development environment (with Windows Subsystem for Linux) on my new Windows computer.
Next, I had to do was to make Visual Studio Code on both Mac and Windows play nice.
By “play nice”, I meant:
- Syncing preferences across Mac and Windows
- Syncing extensions across Mac and Windows
- Syncing key bindings across Mac and Windows
When I set up my Windows computer, I had the chance to take another look at the shell I’m using. The three main ones out there are Bash, Zsh, and Fish.
I knew of Bash. I used Zsh previously. But how would Fish fare? I’ve heard great things about it, so I tried it out.
I want to share which one I chose and how I went about setting it up.
Mac changes the brightness of your screen automatically. It brightens up when you’re in a bright place. It dims when you’re in a dark place. They do it elegantly and slowly. Most of the time, their brightness adjustment is great.
The same cannot be said for Windows. I noticed huge changes in the screen’s brightness (which causes me to get distracted). I hated it, so I removed it.
Turns out, it’s not as easy as you think it should be.
I write A LOT. When I got my Windows PC, the first thing I did was to change the keyboard so it’s the same as my Mac’s keyboard.
I want to show you how to do this. It’ll help if you’re transitioning from Mac to Windows! (Or if you want to use both at the same time, like me).
