The nix packages collection has a neat library repository. A small nudge can make it completely standalone. Basically it allows experimenting quickly with configuration patterns for custom stuff without an expensive evaluation.

compilation is fun to watch. Here’s what hugo’s --debug output for this blog looks like right now. Rendering takes about 25 seconds on an old laptop. The linearity is easy to see, but that’s the least of my problems ;-)

Kiwi Browser (download) is a Chromium derivative on Android that can directly expose the built–in dev tools on device. Remote debugging is my preference, but it makes quick web development a complete disaster debugging on Chrome for Android just a touch easier.

Browsers are on a slow march towards fully adopting user options for standardized/algorithmic color stylesheets. Great debates over what color to paint the bike shed (website) will eventually end. Paint it (mostly) whatever color you want.

In addition to the invert filter, another way of quickly bootstrapping a dark mode stylesheet is to use Chromium’s auto dark mode emulation as an initial reference.

Firefox’s developer tools excel at finding and fixing accessibility problems quickly. For example, to find all contrast issues on a page fire up the accessibility inspector and scan the tree. My favorite developer tools? You guessed it — Firefox.
