    I still think it is a shame that Microsoft's proposed scroll-translation CSS still hasn't made it into the CSS multi-column standard (and also didn't survive Edge Classic to Chromium Edge shift either).

    It's been on my backlog for a while to find a good JS replacement but haven't been happy with the ones I've tested:

    Thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't realized Github Pages supported SSL today for custom domains, missed a Let's Encrypt at some point I suppose. Trying to get that activated. I'll have to look into the mixed content warnings later.

    Reading the HN feedback I did make a note to adjust the body font color:

    Might also play with some of those newer color theme ideas, the Lower Decks inspired ones spark joy for me. (I used a different theme site for some of the colors that was at and seems maybe done now. This one seems similar and I'm wondering if they just had to change domain names at some point.)

  • Divergent States in a "Single Source of Truth" Framework
    1 project | | 7 Apr 2022
    I'll tell you what I've learnt from struggling with a bug that made me lose a couple of weeks. The application framework used in this post is Hyperapp, but I guess the same problem can be found in frameworks based on transforming the state of "Single Source of Truth" with pure functions (such as Elm, Redux, so on) if we use them in a wrong way.
  • Popular 'coa' NPM library hijacked to steal user passwords

    Personally, I try my best to avoid bringing in dependencies as much as possible, and try to limit my exposure to only dependencies with low/shallow transitive dependency counts. Unfortunately, this is pretty hard, especially in corporate settings. What we need more of are the opposite of what we've been collectively praising: we need more monolithic packages. Case in point: lodash.template is currently vulnerable with no mitigation, even though lodash itself is not. That's just sloppy publishing practices. Esbuild is a great start over the webpack/babel maze of dependencies. There's a stdlib effort along those lines that hopefully would also help. There's a bunch of micro-frameworks that are used in production just fine and have little to no dependencies.

    Even better than JSX is straight up hyperscript or something like @hyperapp/html[1]. JSX feels like a cumbersome attachment in comparison.

    > JSX is valid JS. It is converted down to the same thing as what you describe, function calls to React.createElement().

    This is disingenuous. Browsers do not understand JSX, nor do most JavaScript engines. TypeScript also gets transpiled to JavaScript -- it is not valid JavaScript in and of itself, you require a build step. We can argue semantics, but I think it's pretty clear what I meant.

    > You could even alias all the elements to function names

    You've just recreated what I mentioned two comments above in this same comments thread. :) See:

    This is what I'm arguing for over something like JSX.

  • Leveraging JS Proxies for the DOM
    2 projects | | 9 Sep 2021
    Using a proxy to create elements! While this clearly applies to Hyperapp (a "tiny framework for building hypertext applications"), there's no reason why this couldn't apply to vanilla JS.
  • Migrating a React codebase to web components
    4 projects | | 2 Aug 2021
    The extension was originally written using vanilla JavaScript in 2015. As the codebase grew in complexity, it became difficult to maintain the UI. I wanted a tiny framework to help me organise the interface into components. I chose hyperapp for its small bundle size and seemingly easy API. It wasn’t that straightforward to learn after all and the documentation was lacking at the time.
  • Comparing Vue.js to new JavaScript frameworks

    Like the other frameworks we’ve looked at so far, Hyperapp is not very popular. However, its small community actively works to improve the framework. At the time of this post, Hyperapp does not have a website and its documentation is not nearly as detailed as Vue’s. To learn more about how Hyperapp works, check out this simple tutorial that its creators developed.
  • What is the best engine for incremental games?
    1 project | | 7 Jun 2021
    I'm currently working on a game using Hyperapp , it's small and very focused UI framework. It might be worth a look if you've used React or similar elsewhere. I'm still working through integrating it so I can't yet say whether it's a good fit for incremental games. Let me know what you think.
