This week, I made my first OSS pull request to this very site! Thanks to Jess for posting that on Twitter. I ALSO figured out how to scrape all of my full-size photos off of Facebook so I can finally leave that platform foreverrrr - and I think that might be my first blog post on Dev.to πŸŽ‰

This week, I made my first custom React hook. 🎣 Lots of fun and not that difficult.

Cool stuff Tom. You could even make a custom hook to wrap up all that logic. I made a simple demo here if you're interested. Sidenote, this is the first time I create a hook. πŸ˜‰

This week, I...combined a quote API with an Anime Image API. The result is an Anime Quote Maker! It's easy for anyone to play around with, using random settings or aiming for something specific. codepen.io/max1128/full/VNPxOJ

Instead of a GIF, here's an image from the project in question. Took about three minutes of searching and adjusting to get it :D

This week, I... did a Conway's Game of Life in Elm without any testing. Once the compiler told me that everything was good, everything was.

Cool!!! Im jealous. I’m hoping I can start doing a similar thing with React + TypeScript. I admire elm a lot but I think my coworkers would die if they had to go full FP. TypeScript lets me write immutable, one-way-bound code but I can still make it look β€œimperative-like.” (But i kinda wish I was doing Elm). Have you tried using the Readonly types of TypeScript?

No I did not, I used TypeScript on my own and loved it but I was having weird problem. I think my comprehension of TS is not perfect. I’m not doing Elm at job either, only for personal projets but I wish we do. I’m currently moving my team from Ruby to Elixir which is already, some coworkers does not see the real benefits. With TypeScript or Elm we would have the same problem, when I talked about TypeScript, they told me « All it gives is type? What is the gain?Β Β»

I tried to explain but still.. Anyway, I will be working on a transition to TypeScript soon!

Yea you’re right. It’s hard to explain the benefits like immutability.

This week, I convinced my company to Open Source a couple of libraries we have been working on. Hopefully the community will be welcoming and this will encourage us to open source even more!

The project is at github.com/Paciolan/remote-component if anyone wants to take a peek!

That’s awesome that you were able to convince your company to go open source. That must have been a difficult conversation. But way to go you for helping the community! Cool idea with the remote react component btw. It reminds me of the remote import features of Deno.

That must have been a difficult conversation.

Surprisingly, they were all in. After getting the okay from the higher ups, management was on board!

Ya. It is kinda deno style. I just checked deno out a few days ago.

This week, I was dealing with a major disruption issue on a client network caused by a new malware. It took a lot of diagnostics and effort to get rid of it. I posted about it this morning if you're interested.
