Ok wtf. So you're telling me that #Google #Chrome's #V8 #JavaScript engine was more #insecure than #Mozilla's #Spidermonkey after all these years? Because I'm pretty sure SM has been already doing plenty of the things mentioned in this article (I've touched on SM code plenty of times, so much more than I wanted because I worked on separating Spidermonkey from the monolithic #libxul, it's still hurting my brain...), even before the #Quantum rewrite. So even #PaleMoon which has been commonly trashed for being "old and insecure" is apparently more secure than Chrome, but most crucially it also disproves the long-standing blind belief by security freaks out there that Chrome is "more secure" than #Firefox when it's the other way around on many fronts...

I wrote an article about how to make hastags accessible. Did some #ScreenReader testing with #JAWS, #NVDA, #VoiceOver and #Narrator, which was fun!

Pretty long one though, contains a bunch of tables for comparison. Enjoy the ride!

#Workbench has been added to the showcase on gjs.guide, the #GJS documentation site!

https://gjs.guide/showcase/#workbench

We want newcomers to know there's over 100 API demos in JavaScript, alongside implementations in Python, Rust and Vala.

Get started with #GNOME in #JavaScript or #Python, and you'll have an expressive platform to learn #Vala and #Rust!

Searched the internet for tips on using #Django with #Svelte, hoping specifically for guidance on incorporating Svelte components into Django templates. The first result is an article telling me how to ignore Django templates completely, move all #frontend development to #JavaScript in the form of an SPA, and turn my #backend into a REST #API. Turns out, things can depress you even when they're not surprising.


Hledani prace me nuti se vic bavit s lidmi o mych technologicko-filosofickych nazorech. Treba na pohovorech. Taky vic ctu, co se kde deje. Abych se na tech pohovorech mel o cem bavit, ze ano.

Diskuze kolem variant ruznych technologii jsou moje oblibene. Jako JavaScript vs TypeScript, CSS vs Tailwind. Pripomina mi to krasnou case-study Yarn vs NPM. Dogmatici na vsech frontach.

Absolutely. "A lot of what people use React for would be better handled with vanilla JavaScript" https://gomakethings.com/a-lot-of-what-people-use-react-for-would-be-better-handled-with-vanilla-javascript/ #webdev #reactJS #javascript #tips


"... the website loads in a special browser built into the app, rather than your phone’s default browser. In 2022, privacy researcher Felix Krause found that Meta injects special “keylogging” JavaScript onto the website you’re visiting that allows the company to monitor everything you type and tap on, including passwords. Other apps including TikTok do the same thing."

What the hell?? This is so creepy.

"Most importantly, tooltips should only provide descriptive and non-essential text, giving slightly more detailed text for active elements such as links and form controls. Ultimately, they provide expendable text which is already on the web page."

Great in-depth article about #tooltips by Jan Hellbusch. He knows what he's talking about, had the pleasure to be in one of his workshops and he's an absolute pro. 🤯

I'm looking for a new job, or contract work, for the first time in a while - boosts appreciated!

I'm a polyglot programmer, with a wide range of experience behind me, from developing firmware that runs on 8-bit AVR, to highly distributed systems across hundreds of nodes, I covered pretty much the whole landscape.

I had my fair share of Ops experience too, and worked in (technical) Customer Service aswell.

I speak many languages (#C, #Rust, #Lua, #Python, #JavaScript, some #Go among them), but I pride myself in being able to pick up a new language at a decent level between signing a contract and starting on the job.

I'm a #Linux guy through and through, and have very little experience (or desire) to work with anything else, save maybe for the BSDs. I worked with containers, databases (relational and otherwise); in the cloud and on premises. I can debug, I can mentor, I can teach, and build, and integrate (continuously, even!). I'm not afraid of git rebase, nor of a crowd to speak in front of.

I live in Hungary, and am seeking remote work. I cannot relocate.

If you are someone looking for something like that, or know someone who is, please get in touch. My CV - with contacts - is available here.

Small Web sites will require JavaScript to sign in.

Why?

To protect your privacy.

We use public-key authentication (which I’m implementing as we speak) so your secret is never stored on the server and you only enter it in places you own and control.

(I can already see some folks up in arms about this because JavaScript Bad™ so I just checked in the initial copy for the page that gets displayed if JavaScript is off.)
