Last week, we looked at string concatenation and I figured that this week, we could see what you could actually do with it. Back in 2014, I used a calculator to play around with PhoneGap. It might be time to play with the concept again. See the Pen Vue.js Calculator – v1 by Joe Steinbring …Continue reading "More fun with string concatenation"
One of my big concerns when I bought my 2016 VW e-Golf was how long the battery pack would last. As we established in the previous e-Golf post, if it lasts as my daily driver for 5 years, it should effectively pay for itself. I’m not terribly worried about the battery degrading that fast. Fully …Continue reading "Living with an electric car in Wisconsin: The Battery"
One of the goals for JWS.app was for it to pull in activity from a bunch of sources and update itself. That is the reason why I created the “superfeed”. Let’s start by looking at its current state. See the Pen JWS.app – Superfeed (Before) by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. Getting the content from …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: The “Superfeed” (Part 1)"
As I mentioned in a previous post, I bought my 2016 VW e-Golf for $10,640 but it wasn’t the first electric car that I looked at. Before that, I tried to lease a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq EV but no dealer anywhere near me was willing to provide one. At the time, they were offering them …Continue reading "Living with an electric car in Wisconsin: The Price"
I have never been fond of the footer on JWS.app but I’ve been unsure what to use, there. After addressing the elements at the top of the page, it makes sense to turn our attention to the very bottom of the page. Considering how much we have leveraged Bulma so far, it also makes sense …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: Turning our attention to the footer"
This is going to be a quick (out-of-band) post but if you’ve been wondering how to get that new fanciness in your github profiles, it is pretty easy. You just create a new repo with the same name as your username and “Initialize this repository with a README”. Voila!Continue reading "How do you get that new fanciness in your Github profile?"
Previously, we have looked at the navigation bar, the hero image, and the combination of the two. I figured that next natural step is to look at how to style the content on the page. I want to add some sort of visually pleasing container and Bulma‘s box class seems to be a good option. …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: Styling the content on the page"
In September 2018, I bought a 128gb Pixel 2 off of eBay for $439. In November 2018, I bought a 128gb Pixel 3 off of Google’s Play Store for $949.34. That’s a difference of $510.34 and the Pixel 3 is just not $510.34 more phone than the Pixel 2. I bought it during a 1-day …Continue reading "Why I don’t recommend buying a new cell phone"
Previously, we looked at using Bulma to improve the nav bar and we looked at ways we could improve the hero image. I figured that this week, we would combine the two. See the Pen JWS.app – Hero with Nav by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. I kind of like this look but the nav …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: What if we merged the nav bar with the hero image?"
