Week 19 - 2022
The weeknote for 5/9 - 5/15.
- Learned a nice way to make footer stick to the bottom of the screen using
position: stickyproperty of CSS from a PR to documentation web site for Deno. I realized I so much underestimated the potential of
gray colors in Tailwind
- I found that Tailwind has 5 gray colors builtin:
neutral. They all look almost gray, but they are very slightly different.
slateis more blue than others.
stoneis more red.
grayis a little bit blue, but less blue than
zincis only a little less blue than
neutralis completely non saturated. They are a little excessive for the default colors. How do people use them?
- Deno turned 4 on May 13th. I had expected we'd release Deno 2.0 on the day, but it didn't happen mainly because (in my view) we couldn't decide on the design about how we provide Node.js compatibility. We keep releasing v1.x series for a while.
- Found an article from the RethinkDB founder, which is the post-mortem of the company they founded. They analyzed that one of the reasons they failed is that they stick to the correctness of the product, rather than the speed. Their competitor MongoDB was doing very wrong things on many edge cases, but they pleased the users by releasing many features the community wants in a timely manner. They see that the case when "Worse is better" principle works.
