Should have kept the filigree

Dashlane recently redesigned, stating proudly that they “removed all filigree”. They should have kept it, as the app now looks generic and boring.

PDF stamping

Working on integration for setaPDF + EDD on the new books subdomain. Good times.

Show hidden files on Mac

Toggle visibility of hidden files on Mac: Cmd + Shift + .

Cache checker

Great tool for checking browser caching for web pages and all included files.

14 Kilobytes

The new minimalist design styled by 14KB of CSS (uncompressed and un-minified). That covers 850+ posts and pages spanning 15 years of diverse content.

Placeholder support

Amazing (and sad) to think that, in the year 2020, Internet Explorer still doesn’t support the placeholder attribute, which is supported by all other major browsers.

Winter redesign

Finishing up with the latest redesign for Perishable Press! Should be live this week or early next.

Feedburner

It’s almost like Feedburner was purchased and left to die on purpose. RSS feeds are a direct competitor to Big Search.

Downloads fixed

Finally fixed the inconsistent/broken downloads for .zip files. Just feels good.

shiflett.org

Love the latest design for Chris Shiflett’s shiflett.org. Very inspiring in its simplicity and clean visual aesthetic.

Building out

Gonna be posting a lot of content this year. I have tons of stuff that I want to share.

Disable JavaScript in Chrome

To disable JavaScript in Chrome, open inspector and type Cmd+Shift+P. Then type “java” at the prompt and select “Disable JavaScript”. To re-enable, close inspector.

UpdraftPlus

Been using UpdraftPlus for several years now. Solid, reliable plugin for making database backups.

Frontend metrics tool

Super useful tool for gathering frontend metrics: mydevice.io.

10 years on the same computer

This is the 10th year working on my first iMac. It’s still an incredible machine, but gonna need to upgrade maybe this year.

Nice minimal design

Another fine example of clean, focused minimalist design at michaelsoriano.com. Great content too.
