Pinned toot

Hello, I'm Chris. I've a developer from the US currently living in Den Haag, NL with my wife (moved 6 months ago for work). I enjoy the process of building things, listening to post-rock, seeing the world, and vim.

Looking forward to being part of this community.

Searches the web for a question about how to accomplish something in node... "Just use ... library".
Looking back at when I first started learning JavaScript, I would have learned the core so much more deeply if I was just told to stay away from anything other than core modules unless absolutely necessary. I still finding myself trying to unlearn the idea of "o, there is just a library that does that".

I'm trying out Vivaldi Browser. I love how they do web panels.

Ended up working on a "work" project all weekend. Bummed that I didn't get to work on my own stuff, but happy that I was jazzed enough about a work project to want to work on it.

@neauoire I'm digging through various parts of Oscean and looking at Tablatal. What was your main reason for creating it? Easier to manage than other formats you've seen? Faster parsing? Something different?

Over the weekend on the train I was able to rewrite waka-fetch in JavaScript. This morning I finally finished it up. It's a small serverless utility that grabs and stores my daily waka-time summaries in order to feed them into waka-machine which is a machine learning project that lets me know based on a day of the week which programming language I'll probably be using and a few other small things.
