I was surprised that when I submitted my site to that, the merge message made a mention of the IndieWeb webring that sounded like they weren’t aware of it before

What does the IWC community think of webflow?
bo278, bo280, bo282, bo284 and bo286 joined the channel
#
jacky
[Andi]: good question! I've used it once for a client project - it's great for visualization and what not and an online editor experience
#
jacky
Are you aiming to build a IndieWeb site with it?
#
jacky
what is Webflow
#
Loqi
Webflow is a website design tool that can output auto-generated html/css/js for a simple static site https://indieweb.org/Webflow

#
[Andi]
I use Webflow all of the time, but I was wondering what the IWC crew thought about it.
#
[Andi]
It’s not just for a simple static site. I build CMSes for clients, templates, and import data, etc. It’s quite powerful.

I can imagine! it's probably the only CMS that works so well and has such intuitive design that anyone can use it!

Excellent article

The author would have more compelling reasons to do this if they highlighted things like what breaks, performance decrease, memory or speed gains

It’s beginning to feel like the HTML-CSS-JS vs JS-JS-JS war is a class war. If your project has a budget of millions, “of course” you should use a complex build process and a JavaScript framework that handles everything (according to the folks who believe this). The pressure…

Speaking of html, NPR.org serves plain text and html if you don’t submit to their tracking stuff. A pleasant very fast reading experience is the result. 😄 https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2019/06/when-the-punishment-is-a-benefit-plain-text/

Sorry about that. But in other news, I have my bouncer working again. Or rather, a new bouncer.

I think it’s baffling that the justification for 3JS always comes down to “complex apps.” Why should we want things to be complex?
#
[fluffy]
What do these sites benefit from having more complexity? Why do they need to be “apps?”
#
[fluffy]
My mortgage provider recently changed their simple information portal to an “app” and all it did was break on things that aren’t Chrome and remove all the accessibility so now it is about 20x more difficult for me to find out what my balance is.
#
jacky
[fluffy]: what's 3JS?
#
[fluffy]
JS-JS-JS as opposed to HTML-CS-JS
#
[fluffy]
sorry. On phone and having accessibility problems

On that note I really miss hardware keyboards

#
jacky
hardware keyboards (namely the one on the Sidekick) were awesome
#
jacky
I felt so much faster
#
jacky
now I'm gliding my thumbs on the screen
#
[fluffy]
Yeah. And autocarrot can only do so much. And then there are sites, sorry, *apps* which do absolutely the wrong thing with their input too, like reimplementing an on-screen keyboard badly.

All I remember about blogger is bulk upload/import by FTP, and inconsistent feed handling where sometimes the feed was provided as `text/plain` with no links or paragraphs.
#
[kevinmarks786]
it did have microformat support by default for quite a while

That link didn't work for me on my phone

ah right, yes, it's desktop only

chrisaldrich: it looks like his latest revision did not include my and other's suggestions about acknowledging that online abuse and harassment are problems, even though he mentioned to me that he was considering adding it
#

He'd shared an early draft with me as well... I think I'd made that and a few other suggestions which I'm not seeing either.
