Dev Diary Entry, 2nd February 2021
I’ve been a Mac user for both work and personal use since 2015, but sadly (for me) my current workplace only uses Windows. Back to the world of ctrl-alt-delete for me! I keep forgetting that Windows file paths use back slashes
\ compared to the Mac/Linux forward slash
/. I’m having a hard time remembering all my keyboard shortcuts for Mac VSCode too! I’m not fluently bilinugal in operating systems quite yet.
What I've been doing this week:
- Font-face and Styled Components - Published my first blog post of the year. Nothing ground-breaking, just wanted to document a process for my future self (which is a really good reason to blog if you need one!).
What I've been reading this week:
- Alt vs Figcaption - Explains the difference between the two. Figcaptions that appear on a screen should be illustrative and editorial, whereas alt text is functional. I also learned that a blank alt makes screenreaders ignore images.
- Guidelines for choosing React Libraries - Useful points to consider before blindly installing another 3rd party library into your project.
- SuperTinyIcons GitHub Repo - Love the ethos behind this project and all the tiny code golfed SVG icons!
