This latest personal site design iteration improves the reading experience.
Post margins are condensed and subtle delineation guides the eye. The byline, categories and tags post meta are now hidden on the homepage, reducing clutter. I highlighted hovered articles for clarity.

One does not simply install Wallabag. 👌
On how many devices can you watch Netflix? I’m at 10. 😓 Less is more, I’m failing.
These last few weeks has made me wary of committing further or ever developing for the Apple ecosystem; and working with OS projects ran by a major business.
Delete your old tweets with Twelete, my new release https://github.com/svandragt/twelete.
Tweets are temporary messages, and thus others should not keep your tweets. You have the right to be forgotten, without paying for the privilege.
Set this up on a cheap VPS; Raspberry PI, or locally. Feedback welcome!
Made a very simple to use TextPattern Docker setup where you provide your own TextPattern installation and database secrets then run
docker-compose up github.com/svandragt/txpdocker
WordPress Tavern makes a case for why accessibility matters in WordPress. In the meantime some of us have been discussing this for 25 years, and so have something to say about it.
The main problem with accessibility is the term itself. What we are actually talking about here is a universal user experience.
The industry needs to stop selling accessibility as a checkbox and we need to stop viewing it as something extra to do. Inherently every feature and decision we make is already more or less accessible — it is not an on/off switch.
By applying the inversion principle, we should look at what barriers are preventing people from using our websites to the fullest extend, and code all future solutions with these lessons learned.
Aiming for anything less than universal access also makes little economic sense. Let’s ask ourselves: why make a theme and then make it hard to use on purpose? Why make a theme and only allow a subset of people to use it? Do you only allow people with a first name in the first half of the alphabet to log in to your site? Let’s not artificially limit the versatility of the web.
A universal experience should be expected now, and when someone cannot use your site it is a bug. Your site is not inclusive when people cannot use it.
I guess we are fixing our rueful compatibility story by encasing our tools in fixed environments. We then write new tooling or containers when this is no longer usable.
That seems like a short term view of things.
We will end up with black box containers and needless layers of complexity.
Made a strategic change in Cuttlefish to make it as simple as possible, instead of as a test bed for tooling tech. So I removed Docker and PHPDox support.
