Pro tip: if your website has an infinitely scrolling feed don't put critical information in a footer at the "bottom" of that feed.

Expect to see the code for the #FreeTube rewrite publicly released this weekend! This will open up the rewrite for contributors to help out with getting the new code base back to parity with the last release. I'm really excited to get this out there as it's shaping up very nicely. Expect a blog post to come out with more details along with how you can help.

Here' a preview of what's to come ;)

Why do infinitely scrolling websites sometimes (if not often times) have a footer? According to the design the footer would be, by design, impossible to see, so why is it there?

The worst part is that many of the sites which use a footer under an infinite feed store a lot of necessary details in that footer.

My gf's learning html. Nobody told her that vim's a strange tool for genius programmers, so I just told her it was a normal tool, showed her insert and escape, then let her get on with it.

Half an hour later, I showed her another vim command.

Someone with almost zero education, who can't type properly, is programming in vim because nobody told her it was difficult. I know people who can program in Haskell who aren't sure if they can do vim.

tips for newcomers

follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!

boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.

please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.

hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.

don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!
