No it's not an April Fool's joke folks.

It's that time of the week again. So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

Thanks to a bug on my blog, I learned that Facebook ignores the og:image for a og:url that it "knows" (at least until refreshed). So when sharing a link to my blog on Facebook, the image was always incorrect because I had the incorrect og:url... I didn't realize earlier because I mainly share on Twitter and Linkedin and they respect the og:image independently of the provided og:url.

...maybe I should write a short post about it...

I got into Eleventy. Was using Hugo for years whenever I needed an SSG so chaging that is quite interesting and fun.

Here's a short piece I wrote about it in case anyone's interested: dev.to/ttntm/migrating-from-hugo-t...

Recently I've been learning Quill, which is a great WYSIWYG rich text editor for the web.

It's API-driven, has a very concise but expressive data model, and has a set of extensible content and module mechanisms that you can use to create your own powerful rich text editor.

I have written two posts documenting my learning of Quill, and I will continue to publish more in-depth articles on the principles of Quill, hoping to enlighten beginners in rich text editor.

How Quill module works?

How does Quill describe editor content?

This week I‘ve’ started an open-source-project in github: deduplicate. This project aims to provide a component that prevents repeated attacks and facilitates my work. I will continue coding afterwards and perfect this project.

See what you can take away from that whole interview process and keep at it! Interviewing itself is a skill.
