Time to make an !

My name is Noel and I am a developer with a mission to create work that makes the world a better place.

You can find more about me on my website & blog:

Most of my toots and boosts will probably talk about , and .

Other of my interests are , , , , , , , etc.

The other day I was saying it'd be nice to have an app that mimics the way that conversations happen in conferences/meetups. Today I found one that's very close to what I had in mind!

That CSS pixels are not equivalent to device pixels in high resolution screens. So <img width="300" height="300"> can actually be rendered as 600x600px in some devices.

The best podcast app I've used and this happens :( Of course, it'd be easy for me to say "upload it to a different appstore". But is that even a real choice for a business owner? I really hope that the future is decentralized. More technology like RSS and email please.

Here's an idea: A video call application where participants can make conversation groups on the fly and organically. Like Zoom's breakout rooms, but managed by the participants and visible to everybody in the "master room".

that display:flex in the body breaks pagination when printing websites in Firefox :/ use display:block instead.

Which is better?

I've been searching for the Javascript equivalent of Laravel's tap helper and I couldn't find it, so I ended up doing it myself. Here's my version in Javascript & Typescript!

that Github Actions logs expire, and I wasn't able to find when. I had been switching to them in all my repositories for convenience, but this is a blocker for me. Back to SemaphoreCI it is.

Here's a sneak peek of the media tracker I'm working on! I've probably spent more time than I should implementing some animations, but I'm happy with the results!

I love styling with TailwindCSS and I've learned a lot about colors and design systems using it. Today I created a simple PWA to help building color palettes with it, check it out.

I joined 3 months ago, and now I can say that I am very happy to be working here. I struggled to find a company with values that I share, but now that I have I'm looking forward to being here for a long time :).

Tomorrow afternoon I'm giving a lightning talk at where I'll explain how I built a Task Manager using the protocol, come say hi if you're around!

I just found out that most wireless mouse controllers have a hidden compartment next to the batteries to store the USB stick 🤯
