    Project mention: Optimal Images in HTML | | 2023-01-26

  • webpack

    Project mention: Rails on Docker · Fly | | 2023-01-26

    I'm not gonna lie, I didn't read all that, but the node example alone proves you either didn't read the guy you replied to or haven't been coding long enough to grok the problem.

    What if you want to start a new project using the latest postgres version because postgres has a new feature that will be handy, but you already maintain another project that uses a postgres feature or relies on behaviour that was removed/changed in the latest version? You're going to set up a whole new VM on the internet to be a staging environment and instead of setting up a testing and deployment pipeline you're going to just FTP / remote-ssh into it and change live code?

    you define an apps entire chain of dependencies in a compose file / set of kube manifests / terraform config for ecs. Then in the container definition itself you lock down things like C library and distro versions: maybe you use specially patched imagemagick on one project or a pdf generator on another, and fontconfig defaults were updated and it changed how aliasing works between distro releases and now your fonts are all fugly in generated exports...

    nevermind this, check out this thread to destroy your illusion that simply having node installed locally will make your next project super future proof

    Project mention: Do you guys create a separate css page for each html file(page)? | | 2023-01-09

    Webpack is just fine, but it can be very complex and tends to have a high learning curve. Tools like parcel and rollup do more or less the same thing as webpack, but they're much easier to learn, tend to be more forgiving, and require a lot less boilerplate setup to get up and running.

    Project mention: Command block programming language idea? | | 2022-02-01

    But other than that, you might be interested in the fact that there are multiple such command compilers out there already. Some more advanced than others, but you might be interested in them: Smelt, CPM, commandstudio, etc. Also, I see you're still thinking with commandblocks. May I interest you in datapacks? They are a lot more advanced, performant and streamlined than commandblocks, and there are compilers for that, too! Like mcpy, mcscript, emcl and many more!
