Checking out the "intrinsicsize" spec and it seems really reasonable. It allows you to specify the intrinsic width/height for an image/video element; no need to wait for it to download and thus potentially cause janky page reflows. https://github.com/ojanvafai/intrinsicsize-attribute
"Why just image and video? These are the only elements in [the HTML spec] that size to an external resource." <-- I always found this weird. An <img> has to download the PNG/JPEG before it can figure out how big it should be!
When I make a command-line utility I tend to leave the extension off of the filename: copy_xattrs instead of copy_xattrs.zsh, for example. That gives me the option later to swap a shell script for a Python script (or a Python script for an executable, or whatever) without renaming the file. Ideally, this also means that I wouldn’t need to change any of the programs that call the utility.
me writing programming tools: we need to make it easier to code! liberate the code! make it accessible to all!
me debugging someone else's code: you should need to train for 10 years before you can even touch a text editor, and we need a central guild body that randomly audits members, and if your code quality is bad enough you are immediately executed
It would be really tricky for OS emoji pickers to include these: exactly how would that work? Some emoji would be bona fide Unicode characters but others would just be :something: sequences? Would every text box in the OS be able to specify its own mapping of these sequences to images? It would be a ton of complexity and I’m guessing no OS vendor wants to make it a priority 😕
@nolan I get what you’re saying, but I also can’t help but feel that *this is the OS’s responsibility* and that bundling a JS emoji picker in the browser is just a band-aid over what was the wrong solution to begin with 😕

TIL: It’s possible for a single “git push” command to force-update some refs but not others. For example, “git push origin +develop master” is like a combination of “git push --force origin develop” and “git push origin master”.
