Current #dev experiment: 2d objs can have references to scripts, which are loaded, each script only once. Then custom logic within the scripts runs, e.g. on startup, mouseclick,.. This is, how frameworks emerge, i guess. 🙂

When life gives you lemons, write better error messages.

A good error message should tell the user

1. What and why it happened.
2. Current situation. Including what are not affected.
3. Providing actions they can take.
4. Who can be contacted for further help.

I’d like to introduce my North Star for evaluating software architecture patterns: the Supportive Partner principle.

Good architecture enables, coordinates, clarifies, & simplifies. It doesn’t insist you have to change nearly everything about yourself. And if you part company one day, the breakup will not be messy.

When an architecture insists every object, action & interaction has to be under its control, it doesn’t matter how safe it says you are: you’re in a toxic relationship. #iOSDev #dev

OK, I’m just going to go ahead and blame the fact that it’s Friday for this… So Kitten builds no longer have traditional version strings… they have, umm… birthdays (complete with star sign; because cute) and a favourite colour :awesome:

When reporting a bug, please make sure you mention your Kitten’s birthday and favourite colour.

(The favourite colour is also the short git hash.)

It’s probably a good idea if I step away from the computer now…

#security experts I have a web #dev question for ya.

Read an article that claimed "Many #cybersecurity experts recommend obfuscating code and content, making it difficult for hackers to reverse engineer or exploit security vulnerabilities. You should always obfuscate your code before pushing it to production."

My experience and training taught me - anything you don't want someone to see on the front end, should just be done on the back-end. With some exceptions obfuscating code isn't good.

J'ai commencé à apprendre Unity et c'est rigolo. J'ai suivi un tuto pour les bases puis d'autres pour refaire des jeux populaires et basiques.

Si ça vous intéresse, je vous recommande cette chaine Youtube :

Globalement, c'est toujours un bon exercice de refaire des trucs existants dans une optique d'apprentissage. Ça permet de se passer de la phase créative qui demande généralement une bonne connaissance des outils pour connaitre les possibilités, on se concentre sur la technique.

Et dans cette chaine, y'a du choix ! Vous trouverez certainement un jeu que vous aimez et que vous aimerez refaire pour comprendre la logique, les interactions, etc.

Et en plus de ça, il a l'air de donner de bons conseils et des bonnes pratiques de développement. C'est toujours bien de prendre dès le début de bonnes habitudes et de respecter quelques bons principes qui permettent de maintenir plus facilement son code durablement.

Any tips on what to do when an external team whose service you depend on pushes back against doing a post mortem? They just don't have the culture going. But it feels like calling in management would go against the grain of blameless culture.

Developer job website,, responds to deletion requests by implying that the account will be deleted.

However, they actually just change your email address to "username.deleted@domain.tld", without any further controls to remove data or render an account functionally deleted and gone.

See examples below.

I can log in with my same password, just by changing the username I use to the ".deleted" version, And while my account seems to be mostly blank, I know for a fact that they have my name, and they still have some of my preferences & skillsets (also attached).

This opens a notable attack vector on anyone using a gmail or other "open" mail account -- a malicious actor could target by social engineering Turing Support into deleting Alice's account, while at the same time creating an account under the likely-untaken username (gmail doesn't care about period marks). Once the account is deleted, it's trivial for the malicious attacker to request a password reset to their owned dot-deleted account (which, if you see the screenshot, works).

tldr: whoever built this site doesn't know what subaddressing is, Turing doesn't delete your account when they say they're going to do so permanently, and they seem to keep all the data you've given them even after you've requested a delete. Kinda shite, if you ask me.

I've reached out to Turing but in the interests of no one else giving them their data until they explain themselves, I'm making this public post now to alert developers and I suppose people in the infosec community (which, hi, yall seem pretty neat from the outside). If Turing reverts to me, I'll add it here.

#Web #dev folks, I’m implementing the ability to pass classes to components in #Kitten and could use your thoughts…

Passing a class is easy: <${MyComponent} … class='myClass'> (same as any DOM element). However, in the component, you can’t get a property named “class” as that’s a reserved keyword. Even if you could, I’m worried about polluting the namespace (we also have “slot”).

So, I’m thinking, ALL CAPS for special props?

- Won’t clash
- Stands out
- I’m allergic to $ prefixes


Code listing:

function MyComponent ({name, SLOT, CLASS}) {
  return html`
    <div class='MyComponent ${CLASS}'>
      <h2>Hello ${name}, this is my component.</h2>
      .MyComponent {

Under that are two more slots, main and footer.
