It was this big 'ol thing.

Implement datamodel #41

  • Added components/CaseTable.js which manages the dominant view (using React useContext)
  • Added layout cruft to components/bodyview.js
  • Added contexts/casecontroller.js responsible for global app state (!!) including pre-initialized context provider
  • Added Material-UI helper components (e.g. CssBaseline) per best practices
  • Moved SSoT JSON files to static for now
  • TODO: reinstate nav.js
  • TODO: improve linting workflow

rfj_expungement is a tool being developed at Code For DC to help pro-bono (volunteer) lawyers. Rising for Justice holds clinics in Washington, DC where they help people navigate the surprisingly Byzantine process to clear their criminal records. If you have a criminal record (at least in the US) it can make it harder to get housing, a job, services, and more.

The PR is meant to clean up the repo following the National Day of Civic Hacking, where we had a bunch of great contributors.

Started posting on DEV and quite impressed with the whole platform.

I hadn't realized how much progress it has made since the "Medium for developers" days. There are so many little pieces of polish that end up encouraging discussion and interaction rather than the Medium-style wall of text.

The thing it actually reminds me of most is forums that I used back in high school. I have really fond memories of those and something has been lost between the distraction of Facebook, the real-time barrage of Slack, and the dopamine of Twitter.

Still getting used to the editor. I think I actually like it more than the Quora/Medium/WordPress editors but there are some little technical snafus I have had and still figuring out my workflow.

Hey about the editor part, for writing posts I’m using bear for macOS and iOS. I can really recommend it! Pro version is not so expensive ;)

I finally broke 200lbs. Numbers shouldn’t mean anything in terms of weight loss as it’s really about reducing your fat, but it was a goal I had set anyways. I did not measure my fat reduction during this period, but I can tell just by looking in the mirror and how my clothes fit, I’ve definitely lost a few slabs of bacon.

I’ve generally been active, but a few bad injuries including a calf tear last fall lead to the weight gain. It was a bit rough at the beginning as I was coming off an injury that took a while to heal, but busting my butt at the gym, sleeping more and eating less (not starving) got me here. No I am not a doctor, but this is what worked for me. πŸ’ͺπŸ’₯

All that to say, I’m starting to look more like this university pic minus the scary shaved head LOL.

Not exactly my achievement I guess, but... thanks to this amazing community, I got contributions to my Open Source project (worked the last few years alone on the project). So for me, it's still unbelievable :-)

I did my first online video talk.

My video didn't work (only desktop sharing) and I got a classical Linux permission problem (which I solved in the end) but overall I think it worked out great. πŸ™ƒ
