The World’s Writing Systems

Fascinating site with a presentation of 292 different writing systems of humankind; only 146 are encoded by Unicode.

Blog ✨ Statamic Threeville

Statamic 3 gets its own blog with details about its upcoming (Q1?) release. Big changes are afoot so for someone like me who cries a little bit every time I try and write some real code, this version looks like it might be quite a bit more of a learning curve. Of course, I can't really upgrade the blog until some of the plugins have also been upgraded.

Eleventy

I've been meaning to give Eleventy a go for a little while now. Statamic 3 is looming on the horizon (looming in a positive way), but I always like to keep my head above water with some of the CMS market. Useful stuff to know.

Four Cool URLs

Like Jeremy (and hat-tip for the link), I'm a sucker for URL schema. This is a nice little blog post going into detail of four. My favourite is still Traintimes.org.uk.

<

blockquote>URLs have been around for more than 20 years. They're a method of "identifying a resource", which means "unambiguously pointing to something on the internet." That's how they're normally used: URLs point to websites, articles, images, son...

Making Future Interfaces: Algorithmic Layouts

Following on from Heydon's recent post on container queries, I stumbled across a video he'd made on making future interfaces. Great explanation on modern layout conundrums.

Stepping away from Sass

Cathy writes a very informative post about how she's moved away from Sass.

My latest site redesign and why I left out Sass and media queries in favour of native CSS grid, calc, viewport units and custom properties.}

The interesting thing here is that, largely, she says, the knock-on effect was that doing this removed media queries. I'm inspired to see if I could do this on my own blog design and see if you can still retain the necessary subtle design tweaks – which med...

The Flexbox Holy Albatross

This is very clever. Looks like Heydon may have given us a solution for container queries without container queries and by usig a clever combination of flexbox, calc, and --multiplier. And a smart brain.

New year, new GitHub: Announcing unlimited free private repos and unified Enterprise offering

Github announces that all Free accounts now have unlimited private repos. Amazing news.

GitHub Free now includes unlimited private repositories. For the first time, developers can use GitHub for their private projects with up to three collaborators per repository for free. Many developers want to use private repos to apply for a job, work on a side project, or try something out in private before releasing it publicly.

Using the iPad Pro as my main computer

Jon Hicks with a long, detailed, and informative blog post on how he's moved onto the iPad Pro for more of his design work. Some good links to other software as part of his workflow at the end of the post as well.

Design Better Forms – UX Collective

I love this type of design advice. Simple do/don't guidance on the most basic of things that many people either don't consider or wilfully ignore.

Whether it is a signup flow, a multi-view stepper, or a monotonous data entry interface, forms are one of the most important components of digital product design. This article focuses on the common dos and don’ts of form design. Keep in mind that these are general guideline and there are exceptions to every rule.

General gu...
