@cancel @neauoire Aside from what I've already said, you can use both device width and height with media queries if you're only targeting devices at a certain resolution, if that's what you're looking for!

@cancel @neauoire Er, to be clear, the latter example was meant for if I was using EM units.

@cancel @neauoire Oh, hm, I think I see what you're getting at. That's not how I'd be using media queries! I'd always be using widths with pixel units for media queries and adjusting font sizes with em/rem units.

That way, I can adjust the base "body" font size based on the device pixel width (if I was using REMs) or I could adjust the font-size right on the parent based on the device's pixel width.

@cancel @neauoire Not exactly. EM units change size based on the set parent element, whereas REM units will change size based on the size set by the font-size set on the HTML or BODY tag of a page! You can do some fancy stuff with this to change the font size on a webpage with these rules in mind. developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do

Unfortunately, however, I don't know of a way to set a maximum font size, which may be what you're looking for.

@cancel @neauoire Uh, I mean, it refers to how big text will be on the intended screen!

Using em/rem units might actually help for you here, since they're related to the default text size set by the body element (for rem) or by the parent element (for em). If that doesn't work, there's also vh or vw units that you can look into! Those are related to the viewport height or width respectively, which is more closely related to device size.

@cancel That's true—but I think that works out, in the end. If someone has a browser that they've only set to a quarter of their screen's width, making the website's typeface more legible or bigger somehow is completely usable.

@cancel You can use media queries to do this, based on the device's height or width! :3

@neauoire Oh yeah, that makes sense. When the main point of decentralization is to replicate your data to everyone, making sure everyone recovers from one point of failure is extremely difficult.

@neauoire A few of my friends have noted the trade-off you get with decentralized technologies—specifically, centralized services (Twitter/birdsite) are very easy to sign up on, and decentralized services are obscure/unknown but give the user more control over their own data. The trade-off is accessibility vs control.

That, however, doesn't even get into the implementation of those technologies. I know it was very easy to edit Rotonde feeds on the fly, for example.

@m Moi aussi — j'ai appris un peu dans lycée, mais c'était trops longue puisque j'ai parler français avec quelqu'un >w>
