    1. Maintaining the builds of your repositories should be everyone’s job. Instead of relying on that one build person in the team, Travis CI makes infrastructure and configuration a team responsibility.
    1. It turns out that, given a set of constraints defining a particular problem, deriving an efficient algorithm to solve it is a very difficult problem in itself. This crucial step cannot yet be automated and still requires the insight of a human programmer.
    1. I wanted to keep reviewing restaurants, but I didn’t want to go back into their dining rooms both because of the risk and because I was afraid readers would take it as an all-clear signal. When the governor halted indoor dining again in December, my selfish reaction was relief. Then I briefly got depressed. How would restaurants survive? And how would I keep writing about them?One answer had already started to appear on sidewalks and streets in the form of small greenhouses, huts, tents and yurts. Inside these personal dining rooms, you can (and should) sit just with people from your own household. If the restaurant thoroughly airs the space out between seatings, any germs you breathe in should be the same ones that are bouncing around your home. Many restaurants instruct their servers to stay outside the structures as much as possible, though some don’t.

      Syntax of question and answer reveals itself again. His doubts and negativity are addressed within the first highlighted paragraph with a question coming to Pete's mind. He realized his influence as a critic and decided to take the right step to prevent anything bad from occurring. Despite his sacrifice, the next paragraph he discusses the clever solutions restaurants had come up with which solved his problem for the most part. This description underlines yet more change that brought upon good things, which is the main idea he is relating to the food scene. He creates a comparison between an at home setting along with the solutions restaurants have come up with to further emphasize his point of safety amidst COVID.

    1. It is difficult to come up with content that is not extracted from a real application. Manufacturing scenarios to see if ideas have practical application turned out to be an exhasting and time consuming process.

    1. In many communities, it’s not just discrimination, but gender-based violence that keeps girls off the playing field.

      This is the second problem that the article addresses. Violence in sports causes many problem for female players.

    2. Similarly, in the sports arena, we see massive gaps in the prize money, sponsorships, facilities and equipment allocated to women athletes

      This is the problem about unequal pay. However, this can't be changed because there isn't much people who are interested in women sports. This means that there wouldn't be enough money to pay the female players equally as male players.

    3. At the same time, the world of sport remains plagued by many of the same gender inequalities that we see more broadly; issues such as unequal pay, gender-based violence, a lack of targeted investment and negative stereotypes and social norms

      This is the problem that this article tackles.

    1. Report: This price didn't exist on the store This price did show on the store but the game could not be bought This was a very short price made by a mistake (glitch)
    1. Unlike naming children, coding involves naming things on a daily basis. When you write code, naming things isn’t just hard, it’s a relentless demand for creativity. Fortunately, programmers are creative people.
    2. violates our expectation that hard things should be technical
    3. Scalability is the problem you want to have, and sooner rather than later, but maintainability is the problem you’re definitely going to have, sooner or later.
    1. You use grid-area, so the place for the side nav is allocated at start. If you hide (or even delete) the side nav, that won't change anything about this. You have to do a little trick: Set the width for the first column to 0 and change the grid-gap because otherwise you will have a (not needed) gap at the left.

    1. So, what I've discovered in a meanwhile. It was an ubuntu-docker issue. Recently I upgraded my ubuntu from 16.04 to 18.04. This change seems to be incompatible with the docker version I had, 1.11.0.
    1. 1) QT Apps load very slow in startup (ex, qpdfview, Audacious), had to look at Ubuntu forums to find a solution installing kvantum and KvYAru theme, so this is solved at the moment; but the theme (SVG based, cannot modify it in a text file) have orange highlights, not consistent with Mint-Y theme, but it is the best option at the moment. This temporary solution I found was here: https://itectec.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-qt-apps-are-very-slow-to-load-in-xubuntu-20-04-when-export-qt_qpa_platformthemegtk2-is-enabled/
    1. I think some of the design details are insane (I dislike the binary logs, for example), but those are details, not big issues.
    2. Systemd problems might not have mattered that much, except that GNOME has a similar attitude; they only care for a small subset of the Linux desktop users, and they have historically abandoned some ways of interacting the Desktop in the interest of supporting touchscreen devices and to try to attract less technically sophisticated users. If you don't fall in the demographic of what GNOME supports, you're sadly out of luck.
    1. Situation: you have a single line of text in a flex child element. You don’t want that text to wrap, you want it truncated with ellipsis (or fall back to just hiding the overflow). But the worst happens. The unthinkable! The layout breaks and forces the entire flex parent element too wide. Flexbox is supposed to be helping make layout easier!
    1. n the mid-1920s, he had speech therapy for a stammer, which he learned to manage to some degree.
    1. I managed to remove it myself this morning...apparently it used to get it's hooks in so deep it was very difficult to remove the daemon as it interconnected with ubuntu-desktop for....reasons.
    2. The strangest "quirk" I had was that I couldn't get the web browser to save a file directly to an attached, encrypted drive. Permissions problem. So I had to save to an interim folder then move it across by hand. Utter pain.
    1. There was not yet, formally speaking, an American people. There were, instead, living in the thirteen British colonies in North America some two-and-a-half million subjects of a distant king. Those subjects became a people by declaring themselves such and then by winning the independence they had asserted as their right.

      • There were many American peoples. None of them were White.
      • "those subjects became a people by declaring themselves such and then by winning the independence they had asserted as their right" - OK no. Quite a lot of people did not have the autonomy to "declare themselves" part of a people, and indeed were not recognized as such. There were also loyalists. And this idea of "a people" is...really complicated.
      • While it's true that the first citizens of the United States were former British subjects, it is worth noting that a lot of other people lived in the current United States at the time who were tribal citizens, French colonists, Spanish colonists, and enslaved people who weren't considered citizens of anywhere.
    1. Basically the typescript compiler emits no code for interfaces, so webpack can not find them in the compiled module; except when a module consists of only interfaces. In that case the module will end up completely empty and then webpack will not investigate the exports.
    1. They say that there are only two hard problems in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors. Caching is what Service Workers do. It’s literally the #1 hard thing! … or maybe the #0 thing? Whatever. It’s hard.
    2. Oh, silly me, that won’t work. We can’t update index.html at all, so we certainly can’t remove the call to register!
    1. But it doesn't work so I have to wrap slots in useless and interfering divs or spans like this: <Button fz="16" h="64" {...$$props}> <span slot="prepend"><slot name="prepend" /></span> <slot /> <span slot="append"><slot name="append" /></span> </Button>

      It really doesn't work? I thought, from @tanhauhau's example, that it would, right?

    1. the behavior you want happen is actually a chicken and egg situation, you need to initialise FancyList in order to get the value for let:prop from the FancyList, however you can't initialise FancyList without the value of id which comes from within FancyList.
    1. There is also the concern of this effectively being a closed ecosystem where developers are paying other developers who themselves are paying other developers. This creates a cycle where not only is there no additional money exchanging hands but the money being shared is slowly decreased through things like processing fees. This is not a viable solution to the funding problem.
    1. You may find that your application requires a layout that differs slightly from your regular application layout to support one particular controller. Rather than repeating the main layout and editing it, you can accomplish this by using nested layouts (sometimes called sub-templates).
    1. But of course, there are UX implications. For example, it can be harder to select the text, and the entire element needs fairly complex styling to create clear focus and hover states. There are also accessibility implications, like the fact that the content of the entire card is read before it is announced as a link.

    1. Say I have a separate API server that provides content for a Sapper route. I could just query that API in my route's preload function, but if the content changes rarely, I don't want to incur that cost for every page load and would much rather cache responses from the API on the Sapper side.
    1. This is an opportunity to fix a bug: if you're on a page that redirects to a login page if there's no user object, or otherwise preloads data specific to that user, then logging out won't automatically update the page — you could easily end up with a page like HOME ABOUT LOG IN ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Secret, user-specific data that shouldn't be visible alongside a 'log in' button:

    1. So, how does an SPA work? JavaScript loads in the browser and loads data from an API. Most of the rendering is done on the client Side. But search engine bots have a hard time indexing the page because it doesn't have much without JS.
    1. This scenario demonstrates one drawback of CSS: With all the style rules that need to be applied to multiple elements on multiple pages, things can get pretty redundant. And redundancy can eat up your time and cause friction whenever you need to change a color, font, or any other style aspect across your site.
    1. For use$ since svelte is never going to support actions for components, i designed something that reminds React hooks that will in some ways replace this feature.

      Isn't that what use$ is trying to do already? How is that "something that reminds React hooks" any different? Will be interested to see...

    1. If I understand the problem correctly, just changing the imports to point to svelte/internal isn't enough because they could still point to different packages depending on how your components are bundled. It solved your specific issue, but if you had two completely unrelated Svelte components compiled to vanilla javascript bundled with Svelte, you'd still hit issues with mismatching current_component when using slots or callbacks.
    2. It sounds like another case of multiple svelte/internal modules? I think we need to look into reworking how svelte/internal keeps track of the current component since it breaks when mixing components not bundled with the app. It sounds like we need to find a way to pass Svelte's internal runtime state when instantiating components, since slots and callbacks end up mixing different svelte/internal together.
    1. As mentioned in #2937, this is the sort of thing that happens when you have two copies of Svelte's internal scheduler running. If you're importing the compiled version of an external Svelte component into another Svelte component, this is what you end up with. There's a svelte field in package.json that's respected by rollup-plugin-svelte and which is intended to point at the uncompiled Svelte source, so that the external component can be bundled together with the main app, without any duplicated internals.
    1. It is impossible to rebuild the base from the Dockerfile as the 3rd party dependencies have changed significantly since 8 months ago when the base was last built. The tags for my base image have been overwritten and I can only restore them from a descendant image. With Docker 1.8 I simply pulled the descendant image, tagged the base layer and I was done. With Docker 1.10+ I'd need to save, then manually construct the base image descriptor and reload it. Doable but sad that it's far more complex.
    2. Unfortunately, this image was built months ago. No one has the build any more. We are left with a descendant image that has all the original content but on lower layers.
    1. It isn't really compatible with HTML5's input "required" attribute. If an input has the required tag, and you press the submit buton, and the field is empty the browser will fire the "Please fill out this field" message, BUT, you also just disabled that submit button. So in effect, the form can no longer be submitted.
    1. The redirect-after-post pattern is nice, but it doesn't solve this problem. The problem is either stupid users who double-click the submit button or impatient users who re-submit the form before the page has loaded. Both of these cases take place before the redirect-after-post pattern applies.
    1. The resolve.alias option is used to make sure that only one copy of the Svelte runtime is bundled in the app, even if you are npm linking in dependencies with their own copy of the svelte package. Having multiple copies of the internal scheduler in an app, besides being inefficient, can also cause various problems.
    1. It won't work in all use cases, but it's better than the div soup.
    2. I run into this on almost every project and end up doing this as a workaround: :global([slot="content"]) This allows me to style that extra div in the component that contains the slots but it would be super nice to have <MyComponent slot="content"/> and eliminate that extra div
    3. If this is getting implemented, I think I'll love to see both implemented. I can see a lot of use cases where I would like to encapsulate the component with additional wrappers and in another scenarios I would like to just use the component. Now i work around this using empty div but then at times it breaks the structure because of the div element and I'll have to add more class utilities to make it work. This will be a great addition for Svelte.
    4. I don't like adding unnecessary divs.

    1. The crux of this pattern is to introduce an index.js and internal.js file.
    2. This does solve the problem, but now our project and API is structured differently. In large projects it might be very hard to determine how to pull this trick off, or even impossible!
    3. Examples of this include: requiring base classes or reading from imported variables that have not been initialized yet.
    4. as soon as you have a (indirect) circular dependency, you might be interacting with a half loaded module in your code.
    1. I run s.search() by typing into an input box, and if I type gibberish very quickly, the console prints out "making search request" on every key press, so many times per second -- indicating that it hasn't been debounced at all.
    1. Sometimes we can’t implement a solution that’s fully spec-compliant, and in those cases using a polyfill might be the wrong answer. A polyfill would translate into telling the rest of the codebase that it’s okay to use the feature, that it’ll work just like in modern browsers, but it might not in edge cases.
    1. You can see that behaviour in this example. Select a range of text and hit the tab key. Because the <textarea> value changes, the current selection is cleared and the cursor jumps, annoyingly, to the end.
    1. The educator’s role in self-directed learning

      Fostering self-directed learning through strategy is discussed by Bailey et al. (2019) in chapter 1 of “Self-Directed Learning for the 21st Century: Implications for Higher Education.” The authors review the changing role of the educator and the learner based on respective self-directed teaching strategies (problem-based learning, cooperative learning, process-oriented learning) and the learner’s propensity for self-directed learning. In addition to providing principles to promote self-directed learning, the Grow and Borich models for implementing said learning were briefly reviewed. 8/10

    1. Creativity, Self-Directed Learning and the Architecture of Technology Rich Environments

      (Click Download full-text PDF to read). In this article, the authors reflect on the need to cultivate creativity and self-directed learning through transition from conventional course design to a more comprehensive design, which includes technology, problem solving, and collaboration. Moreover, the authors contend that measures of success should not be limited to traditional assessment methods. Barriers to the success of a self-directed design within the typical learning environment are mentioned. Through case study review, the authors demonstrate that strategic course design (educator, setting, technology, expectations) fosters development of the self-directed learner. Dynamics supporting the success of the technology-rich, creative, self-directed design were included. With a methodological approach that incorporates technology, problem-solving, teamwork, and educator support, self-directed behaviors emerge.(8/10)

    1. Just like elements can have children... <div> <p>I'm a child of the div</p> </div>...so can components. Before a component can accept children, though, it needs to know where to put them. We do this with the <slot> element.
    1. Using the keyboard arrows, navigate down the suggestion list to the item(s) you want to remove from the Chrome autofill suggestions With the suggestion highlighted, use the appropriate keystroke sequence to delete the Chrome suggestion:

      Linux: Shift + Delete

    1. One of the primary tasks of engineers is to minimize complexity. JSX changes such a fundamental part (syntax and semantics of the language) that the complexity bubbles up to everything it touches. Pretty much every pipeline tool I've had to work with has become far more complex than necessary because of JSX. It affects AST parsers, it affects linters, it affects code coverage, it affects build systems. That tons and tons of additional code that I now need to wade through and mentally parse and ignore whenever I need to debug or want to contribute to a library that adds JSX support.
    2. The only "issue" it has is that its unfamiliar. People have been working with HTML for years and are comfortable with it. That's basically the only reason that people find it more readable. If you make an effort to spend sometime with hyperscript, it becomes as familiar and readable as jsx.
    1. The primary motivation behind virtual-dom is to allow us to write code independent of previous state. So when our application state changes we will generate a new VTree. The diff function creates a set of DOM patches that, based on the difference between the previous VTree and the current VTree, will update the previous DOM tree to match the new VTree.

      annotation meta: may need new tag: for: "code independent of previous state."

      annotation meta: may need new tag: for: diffs other than source/text code diffs (in this case diffs between virtual DOM trees)

    2. Manual DOM manipulation is messy and keeping track of the previous DOM state is hard. A solution to this problem is to write your code as if you were recreating the entire DOM whenever state changes. Of course, if you actually recreated the entire DOM every time your application state changed, your app would be very slow and your input fields would lose focus.
    1. complexity in financial innovations is itself an important risk factor for systemic failure in the financial sector

    1. Before MDX, some of the benefits of writing Markdown were lost when integrating with JSX. Implementations were often template string-based which required lots of escaping and cumbersome syntax.
    1. Features and characteristics of problem based learning

      The problem based learning (PBL) strategy is defined. The strategy is defined as an iterative process with specific goals (knowledge, problem-solving skills, self-directed skills, collaboration, motivation for learning). The authors go on to describe the advantages, disadvantages, limitations, and considerations for the use of PBL. Integration of technology allows for new opportunities in education and training across disciplines. (7/10)

    1. Project Based Learning to Develop 21st Century Competencies

      In this chapter, the author defines problem based learning (PBL) and highlights the benefits to the learner. In addition to incorporating technology to enhance learning, the article reinforces the need to foster the softer skills that may be developed as a result of PBL (teamwork, accountability, problem-solving, creative thinking, risk-taking, communication skills, and critical thinking skills). Though the data is limited, and there are inherent challenges, PBL is of value in course design. (8/10)

    1. An Evaluation of Problem-based Learning Supported by Information and Communication Technology: A Pilot Study

      (Under "Viewing Options", select PDF.) In this article, Ernawaty and Sujono (2019) summarize results of a study funded by the Research and Higher Education Directorate of Indonesia. The study aimed to evaluate the cogency of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in problem based learning (PBL) and traditional teaching methods (TTM) based upon learner test scores. The concepts of PBL, TTM, and implications of ICTs are briefly reviewed. Results of the study revealed that PBL with the support of an ICT yielded the highest test scores. (6/10)

    1. Most people seem to follow one of two strategies - and these strategies come under the umbrella of tree-traversal algorithms in computer science.

      Deciding whether you want to go deep into one topic, or explore more topics, can be seen as a choice between two types of tree-traversal algorithms: depth-first and breadth-first.

      This also reminds me of the Explore-Exploit problem in machine learning, which I believe is related to the Multi-Armed Bandit Problem.

    1. Currently, I can only do this with some ugly JS, by wrapping the <slot> in a div and then selecting all direct children of that div (div>*). But this fix/solution also makes me face a problem: The <div> partially destroys the layout/design compared to when not using that div wrapper.
