Not Your Typical Horizontal Rules

This is a great exploration of how to use SVG on the web. It is a very under-utilized technology.
One thing that would add to this post is to point out that you can define an SVG once in a document and then reference it everywhere else. That way you aren't inlining the actual SVG markup over and over and over.
1. Place your SVG inline anywhere in the document. I usually put all of them in a `` I do `display: none` on.
2. Make sure you assigned each SVG an ID: ``
3. Reference that SVG anywhere in your document using ``
I use it extensively in a Github project (shameless plug) I've been working on lately. https://github.com/pseudosavant/player.html/blob/master/src/...

I love the utility of single file web apps, even if this one does use 2 external dependencies.
I've gotten into this myself. I made a couple of (actually) single file web apps for navigating/viewing videos on a web server, or Markdown on a web server.
Ask HN: Has anyone hired a freelance developer for a MVP?
1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Jan 2021
I have the same question.
I've tried working with UpWork, but their developers seem more geared towards "known"-type of projects, involving specific tech, or specific type of jobs, or fix it jobs.
I presented a project of some advanced JS, nothing too serious, and almost every developer declined or couldn't understand the requirements, likely because they didn't read any of my material about the project.
The job is pretty simple: add support for https://play.Presenta.cc .json files to https://github.com/pseudosavant/player.html#playerhtml. I want to be able to have a Presenta File player, so I can play the Presenta slideshow files and video files from my local folder using the html page. That's generally it. Upwork couldn't deliver.
This job was step one, in a very few number towards an MVP.
Nobody on Upwork seems to be able to do this.
I'm pretty disappointed with UpWork.
Ask HN: How do you build your personal start page?

for years now my "personal home page" has been a TiddlyWiki collection of notes and bookmarks. Simple, lightweight and very useful.
Forgotten program: Note taking or writing app where you can deep dive into words like a wiki, each one opening further and further to the right...

I've been having some success using TiddlyWiki to create a person offline wiki. I'm mainly using it for lecture notes from dog training conferences, but I think you should investigate it for this as well. It's small, fast, taggable, searchable, copyable to other devices (just an html file!), and you can keep individual training plans viewable in the feed to focus on while all the others are "closed" but still available as soon as you search them and click them if you want them back. Also heaps of plugins available - I found one that lets you create a visual map of all your notes and you can arrange them however you like with links between them in case you wanted to look at groupings spatially.

TiddlyWiki might be too technical, but it has format buttons and a live preview, and is extremely powerful and delightful.

TiddlyWiki is something I've used for awhile that I quite like, runs in a browser and is fairly smooth, though can take a little bit of work to get running (though there might be services that run it for you and handle all the cloud-based stuff).
