Just finished my first React Native apps. 2 years working as FE, especially React, my project manager decided to moves me into mobile division. So many things to learn. Can't wait to publish new apps improvements!

My compilation of background music was the 5th article I ever posted on and it got featured in the newsletter!

I broke into double digit stars on my new python static site generator.

GitHub logo WaylonWalker / markata

plugins all the way down static site generator


Markdown and Data, plugins all the way down


Here is markata creating my personal site of several hundred pages in ~16s.

Here is markata doing a near instant with a fresh cache.

I am still learning what this will be. Code is completely in develop branch and likely to change significantly.


I want a simple static site generator built off of plugins that are super easy to create, and intuitive to use. I want to create content in markdown and not have to put much thought into seo meta tags or generating og images. The final site should be lightweight, and not weighed down heavily with MB's of unused css/js.

Fast enough site generation

🔌 Pluggable

🧠 Intuitive

🐍 Familiar language

🖼 OG:image out of the box

🎯 SEO out of the box

Using Markata

The docs are still a work in progress, but the [base_cli]( walks…

The MicroPython folks got a tricky issue with Neopixels on ESP32-C3 resolved, and I built a blog post around it, which I think will kick off a short series.

I also made my first contribution to CircuitPython (a PR to improve the ESP32 documentation), which I'm excited about.

Also, I volunteered to help with some of the tags and topics here on DEV 😃

Oh, and I had a pretty great and productive 4-day week at work!

I got Turbolinks hooked up on my personal site. It took a good bit of tinkering since all of my JS was written assuming that there would be a fresh page load every time, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Especially in combination with Alpine.js, Turbolinks gives an SPA-like experience with a state-driven UI, except without nearly the amount of build tooling.

Oh, and I had a company say that they were interested in hiring me!

I'm working on a new side project called Faceful (it's about profile pictures!)
To help devs ship products faster by taking the burden of setting up and maintaining profile picture related features.

In a way, it's 'Profile Picture as a Service' ;)

Not exactly a win of the week, but certainly the win which I'm celebrating this week.
I've also authored a blog post about it. 😝😝

I'm currently in a job transition from management back to dev, and I had 0 meetings this afternoon.

I almost didn't know what to do with myself!

I finally ported one of my Chrome extensions to Firefox. It was fairly straight forward and only required a few tweaks for the code to work in both browsers. Going forwards I'm going to develop for both platforms in the first version
