March: Forem Twitch Events Roundup ๐Ÿ‘พ

In March, Nick Taylor and I kicked off another great month of Twitch streams. This is a round up of all the wonderful guests who joined us.

Walkthrough Wednesday with Jhey

We were joined by Jhey on Wednesday, March 10th to talk about Web animations with CSS, GreenSock(GSAP), and more!

Catch Jhey on the Stream again on Wednesday, April 28th when he joins us to pair program and create a fun animation overlay for our Twitch stream.

Pair Programming with Seth Hall

Seth Hall joined us on Wednesday, March 17th to work on adding a UI feature to indicate images are loading when using drag and drop or copy/paste.

[Editor] Add loading spinner for image drag-and-drop upload #12443

Describe the bug

Today, when someone in the editor (/new) drags-and-drops an image to upload it, they have no indication that it is currently uploading because there is no spinning indicator. This UX bug sets incorrect expectations on how our product works.

To Reproduce

  1. Go to /new
  2. Drag an image file into body area to upload an image
  3. Wait for image to upload

This is how it incorrectly works here:

current image upload

Expected behavior


The easiest solution here would be to render the same "Loading..." indicator when people upload an image from the "Upload image" button.

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS, version: Mac OS 11
  • Browser, version: Firefox
