It’s always humbling when I get around to reading a web related spec. and have a lot of functionality. JavaScript’s not bad (it’s the easiest part of web development) but gives you just enough rope to do super silly things like reinventing all built in browser functions.

White spaces in trick many into writing complex — web development is trollish that way. Firefox’s developer tools show generated white spaces! Hopefully your abstraction is munging HTML faithfully. It’s easy to fight white spaces without realising it. That generally leads to using unsuitable display types and other shenanigans.

WordPress rants are a joy to read, but where’s the simpler, safer replacement? Never forget that software is highly corporatized and mostly crafted for corporations, not humans. WordPress sits among the few that mere mortals can work with and understand. The complete revival of static sites might save us, maybe.

Web servers can be spun up quickly on the command line but with gotchas.

Take the innocent web server .

shell
php -S 127.0.0.1:8080

Best not to use PHP’s web server cli (even for PHP) because routes with a dot (.) are assumed to be static files. Use a real web server or superior cli web servers with minor gotchas.

shell
python -m http.server --bind 127.0.0.1 8080
busybox httpd -f -p 127.0.0.1:8080
ruby -run -e httpd . -p 8080
