How's it going everyone? Just a quick update about myself and what I've been up to recently :)
I've thankfully been safe under lockdown, I hope everyone else has been too - maintain your distance when out in public, social distance for the next few months at least and wash your hands :D
I've been working on smoke-indica.com recently, there was about an 8 day downtime at the beginning of March this year, the fix for this inadvertently disabled the analytics plugin which has left march and april's as 0's across the board for usage stats, not great for motivation to fix the site 😅
The fix for analytics still isn't active because there are build issues preventing deployment of the latest changes, they'll hopefully get resolved after some upcoming changes.
The content for the site has been recently updated, however since it relies on running smoked and a block extracting script it's not updating in real-time, instead multiple scripts need to be manually run then the content committed to the private github repo for deployment to production.
I plan on switching from LostGrid to reactbulma next, I'll probably end up removing the left sidebar, instead favouring a main navbar and creating a larger content scrolling area like the old version.
I need to figure out how to optimize the post sorting mechanism, currently I think it evaluates the sort for all tabs in advance of being displayed - this doesn't make sense if the user doesn't switch between these views. Maybe switching away from using tabs, to instead applying the sort on click would work 🤔
Whilst I've not been programming, I've been playing Animal Crossing and Underlords, watching youtube/netflix, doing light gardening and working on the side.
I've also taken some time out each day to keep curating content, so please do keep posting & I'll make sure to check it out 👍
