Earlier this month I was implementing a lightbox for devtoolstips.org using
<dialog>. I'll be writing about that soon but you can find the implementation in that link, it's remarkable how little code you need. While styling, I made use of the CSS custom properties that where already defined in the CSS to style the dialog and it's backdrop. Or so I thought.
Last Friday I went on the Syntax.fm Supper Club podcast to chat with Scott and Wes about everything Polypane. We go pretty deep into some of the features and in hindsight it’s funny how most of it boils down to “I needed this feature so I built it”. I had a great time geeking out about it so thank you Scott and Wes for having me!
Sometimes we want something to be true so badly, we ignore all the red flags. I had only spoken at this big of a conference once, and that was mostly by accident. So when my CFP got accepted to Modern Frontends, I was elated. A huge conference, in London, surrounded by amazing speakers.
For an article I was writing I wanted to create a quick screenshot of one of the Rotor screens that Voiceover on macOS shows. I couldn't because when you have VoiceOver active the screenshot shortcuts (cmd + shift + 3/4) no longer work because they're captured by VoiceOver instead. If you also have this problem, you can use the
screencapture command line tool.
