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.
Getting the content from the photo blog, the blog, dev, github, and the two tumblr blogs and interleaving the content was tricky enough. When it came to displaying the updates, I just used an unordered list in version 1. I couldn’t immediately think of an alternative. In previous weeks, we have leveraged Bulma. I figured that we could use it again.
This might be my favorite option, so far. This example uses Bulma‘s Cards. My goals were for long-form posts (like this) to be more prominent and to do something mildly similar to Microsoft’s Metro design language.
I am not completely sure if the Bulma Card solution is best option or not but I do think that there is a next step to this. Previously, we looked at the Notifications API and that got me thinking about incorporating push notifications. I might need to add some sort of Modal (to have something to link to), though.
