    Thankfully, at least for me and a non-trivial number of other developers, the new interface is not compulsory.

    It is far less bearable on mobile, but fortunately it can be circumvented on mobile entirely by visiting Reddit via the "i" subdomain, like so: https://i.reddit.com

    e.g. https://i.reddit.com/r/javascript

    or he's specifically talking about the relatively recent Tindery end of the spectrum

    I would presume this is the case, since he refers to dating apps as opposed to dating sites or services.

    So you want transition-delay:

    In response to your edit, are you not looking to use a cubic-bezier function? This is trivial, just use a transition-timing-function or specify the cubic-bezier in the shorthand you composed.

    No Gotham? Do me a favour.

    Can't help but feel that Neuzeit, Circular, GT Walsheim, Sharp Sans, Maison Neue and Graphik should have made this list.

  • Posted to Ask DN: what is your blog set up with?, Nov 08, 2016

    I wrote some HTML. I wrote some CSS. I wrote some JavaScript.

    Then when it came to the blog articles, where the pages would look the same, I wrote some more HTML/CSS/JS, followed by a Perl script to replicate the article pages and generate RSS/JSON feeds. Before I finished the Perl script, I wrote the RSS and JSON by hand as well. It was a quiet weekend so I had time to kill.

    I then used nginx to serve it — at least, until recently, when I switched to Caddy. I'd been meaning to get Let'sEncrypt set up for ages because I didn't want to renew my TLS certs.

    Then I saw [Caddy](caddyserver.com), and thought that it would be a bit of a time-saver. I was not disappointed. It's not like nginx takes that long to setup for HTTP/2 and Let'sEncrypt, but Caddy gets that time down to about 30-60 seconds including curl/download time.

    I could have used a static site generator but I like Perl and I seldom get a chance to work with Perl these days.

    I used to use my fork of the Ghost CMS, but I decided to go static because I wanted to consolidate a number of DigitalOcean droplets into one.
