Remember the time I Added Medium Zoom ? Well as it turns out, as I was reading through Zoom’s documentation, that you can specify a separate URL to load when the image zooms in. I like this, because I crop all my images to be (for landscape oriented) 1000 pixels wide, just slightly over the size of the content area that they go into. This is a serious reduction in size from the resolution they’re taken at. I do this just to improve load times, even with WebP and compression, extra pixels (that get resized to nothingness) are extra data that needs to be sent. And since it’s literally too big to be shown like that, I crop them so that pages load nearly instantly. The problem is that when you click on an image to see it, you get… basically nothing. I (because reasons) don’t have any old images so they’ll stay the same. But from now on, any images that are added in will have a detailed version that loads when you click to zoom.Continue reading
Oh, is.. is something wrong? It’s still Disqus, you say? Indeed it is, for pretty much, two reasons.Continue reading
So for a while now, any images that are put in the content text of a blog post have been links, you can click on one to be taken straight to the image file itself. Well if you haven’t noticed yet, that has just changed, and, in my opinion, a way that’s for the better. Meet Medium Zoom.Continue reading
So as of now, there’s about half as many LFS objects in this blog’s repository, the close size has fallen by, well, not exactly a rock, but by a noticeable amount, and as of now, all my images are around the same size again. So what gives?
Well like the trend is on this site, I offloaded some responsibility to something else. And by something, I once again mean Cloudflare. This time, not workers, but a feature standard with the Pro plan that I switched to a bit ago .Continue reading
So if you haven’t notice, every time you view that main title bar, the subtitle has a little extra tagline on the end of it.. sometimes, sometimes it doesn’t. Well, that randomizes on every request. And here, we talk about the smallest thing I’ve made, to date: the tagline picker for that.Continue reading
After reading on Kev Quirk’s blog post about including the full text of a post instead of just an excerpt, I’ve decided to do that here. And I’ll outline the before, after, and (naturally) all the steps in-between that caused much headache (and late-night coffee consumption).Continue reading
Yesterday I posted about Cloudflare’s cache , and if you didn’t notice (or read far enough down), there’s actual pie charts with data in them for visualization.
Yeah, so now I can add the Google Charts API and draw charts on any page that I like, and the best part is that it was surprisingly simple to do that.Continue reading
I’ve talked enough about Cloudflare caching that I’m not going to do introduce it again. This time though, we’re going in depth just a bit more, going over what’s cached, default cache times, and… more headers.Continue reading
Modern websites and modern browsers support a wide range of security features to communicate specifically what is and is not allowed to be loaded, executed, or sent over the network. Being the person that I am, I’m going to comply with the latest guidelines and best practices as much as I can.. and it’s a headache.Continue reading
No wait, I’m actually serious. As of now, I essentially have Cloudflare as a CDN that’s backed by the Amazon S3 storage service. Posts such as The one about light balance have everything but the featured image… not here anymore.Continue reading
