Pinned toot

Someone on Fosstodon got in touch with me eventually, and we've closed a deal today. I'm starting next month and absolutely stoked to grow into my role and become even better for the next time around! πŸŽ‰

I had absolutely no idea what would happen or any expectation with this toot. Almost out of desperation, this was me shouting into the fediverse -- yet 76 boosts and dozens of replies and DMs later, here I am, incredibly taken aback by the response and the help extended. Thank you EVERY ONE! β™₯

Pinned toot

May be very ambitious, but I want to run a small, personal instance and have 5 real-life friends migrate to it.

I want to see people being again like they were on when it was new to them.

P.s. This might not load for a lot of folks as the DNS changes propagate over the next day or so.

scary, *gasp* 


Has anyone gone from a static site *to* a WordPress site? If you have, thoughts?

ruby, software dev, help 

I'm writing code to build a one-way sync tool for and my budgeting app.

I want to use to store expenses before they are sent out to the budgeting app.

Should I be using a gem to interface with SQLite?

I learned a quick, cool thing today: how to correctly make an HTTP PATCH request for a JSON resource.:

I struggle with deep work. I think many of us do. There are so many buzz-buzz happening. Today, I tried to fight back, and work went well! I'm going to try and cultivate this "focus" more.:

Why night mode so difficult to read. That text contrast = mind blown. 🀯

(This is a note from yesterday, apparently the webmention never came through)

Who is writing this documentation? We need a "simple" subdomain for the RxJS website, like Wikipedia has one for a lot of its articles.

Hmm, so this Tour of Heroes example app that the docs walk you through is storing it at the module directory level, with the naming convention <feature>.ts.

Is this the recommended way?

Where do I store interfaces and enumerators such as ones in the picture? They are specific to a component, or more broadly, a module.

Ahh, so you've got to use the component property while loading the children in the Route config. That component becomes the root/layout component, where you then exercise router-outlet!

Decided to finally give in and make a todo list app in .

Struggling with the concept of "layouts" at the moment. Maybe I'm approaching this all wrong!

You've probably heard of 10x engineer. If you've been interneting a while, you may know it became a meme. Well, Tierney Cyren set up a somewhat satirical page called : I think that's pretty neat.:

...and this section gives a bit more perspective. Looks like providers might be an advanced topic...?

But at least, it seems, you can see it's just one of three ways to provide a service. But in some situations, a service can be "provided" using *something else* other than Angular's service class... and I don't know when you'd do that, and how.

But there's also this section:

which clearly goes: "By configuring providers, you can make services available to the parts of your application that need them."

And now I'm more confused -- this goes over my head. πŸ™ƒ

I'm guessing this changed at some point, and either

1. those tutorials are outdated, or,
2. the people writing it for Angular 11 did not keep up?

Show thread

Hmm, it seems you *don't* need to update a module to tell Angular that that module will use a particular service.

The @Injectable() decorator with its providedIn flag does this.

...which isn't obvious, and is the wisdom being imparted in every tutorial I have read so far. Even one written specifically for 11!

Am I missing something?

The official tutorial goes:

providers: [
// no need to place any providers due to the `providedIn` flag...

So that's the final word then?
