Create your own custom map poster with Mapiful


Mapiful is a clever webapp: just type in the name of a city, choose a mapping style + a poster format, and you can have a map printout sent to your home.

I love the mapping style (just lines) and the simplicity of the app.

10 Career Mistakes I Wish I Had Never Made


Darius Foroux:

In the last decade, I went from student to entrepreneur to freelancer to climbing the corporate ladder to blogger to teacher. Yes, that’s not a normal career path, and it’s also not what I ever expected. But life hardly turns out the way you expect. That’s because we’re only human. And humans make mistakes.

Great list of things one should be looking for (or be careful with) when it comes to building your career. The lists resonates with some previously linked posts.

The flex-grow: 9999; hack


Imagine a flex container (display: flex) with two flex items in a row (flex-direction: row). Item A on the left, and item B on the right. I would like the flex items to be stacked on top of each other when necessary. Item B has to jump onto the second line, if there’s not enough space for it to be at least 20 ems wide.

Now comes the tricky part. I want item A to stretch to the entire width of the container, only if the items are wrapped into multiple lines.

The – clever! – trick to getting this working is to allow both items to flex-grow, but to give item B a ridiculously high value (viz. flex-grow: 9999;)

Day-O 2


Yesterday Shaun Inman released version 2 of the aforementioned Day-O for use with the most recent macOS versions.

It’s been five years to the day since I released the original Day-O, a simple menu bar clock replacement with a simple icon and an equally simple fly-out calendar for your Mac.

So simple. So clever. So handy.

ES2015 (ES6) and React snippets for Sublime Text


babel-sublime-snippets contains a set of shorthands for Sublime Text to working more easily with ES2015 and React.

With it, for example, you can just type cdup followed by a TAB and you’ll end up with componentDidUpdate(prevProps, prevState) {…}.

Find it as Babel Snippets through Package Control.
