    1. For dynamic routes, such as our src/routes/blog/[slug].svelte example, that's not enough. In order to render the blog post, we need to fetch the data for it, and we can't do that until we know what slug is. In the worst case, that could cause lag as the browser waits for the data to come back from the server. We can mitigate that by prefetching the data. Adding a sveltekit:prefetch attribute to a link... <a sveltekit:prefetch href="blog/what-is-sveltekit">What is SvelteKit?</a> ...will cause SvelteKit to run the page's load function as soon as the user hovers over the link (on a desktop) or touches it (on mobile), rather than waiting for the click event to trigger navigation. Typically, this buys us an extra couple of hundred milliseconds, which is the difference between a user interface that feels laggy, and one that feels snappy.

    2. but everything they were doing started to make sense

    4. Vue was always felt contrived for me.
    5. I couldn't land on how I wanted to box primitives. Should I use a getter/setter, or function form like Knockout, or explicit get/set like MobX? These were all ugly.

    1. You feel like you're engaged in enjoyable play when your thinking has the right level of ambiguity and uncertainty FOR YOU

      Play is haptic. It has a feel. And that feel is very idiosyncratic (and not customizable).

    1. Scratching around...

      This is a feldgang, but with a twist. I see you taking on different identities, passing on to the next one some "baton" and then carrying on the conversation within that new set of bones. Or maybe it is a strawberry runner putting down roots and making a rhizomatic mat and carrying on, passing on hyphae and rooting ever on. All I know for sure is that I want to draw a random walking line down your post's page. I don't know why, but that is what I see in my crystal self.
