    Yeah, at least on Chrome on macOS, there's no regular vertical page scrollbar on the right side.

    A) I want to take this course, because SwiftUI looks incredibly interesting.

    B) I hate sites that hide the scrollbar!

    Yeah, the DB syncs seemed to be the big failing on Craft for us. We're used to WordPress for a lot of client stuff, and a plugin like WP Sync DB really solves any DB issues for us (in terms of syncing, backing up, pushing, pulling) so it would be nice to see a one click solution like this built for Craft.

    I believe I tried doing this (it might've been on the version right before 3.1, this was about a month and a half ago), but the system kept telling me my project.yaml didn't match and then the database didn't match.

    It would be interesting to read more about how they handled the local/production dev environment and database situation - was recently working on a project, had a terrific local install and database set up, and could not solve how to deploy it. Ended up having to manually install Craft on the server, rebuild the plugins and structure, and then manually copy and paste all of the content over. Without doing this (and this was only a single dev contributing), the production install failed every time, or had database issues, or whatever - it just wouldn't work at all. It seems like it's the one thing that other CMS's have solved (whether built in or through plugins) that Craft just doesn't have a solution for (or a plugin that does it).

    whoa this is some real psycho level stuff, you don't owe them anything - give them 2 weeks, write up a little handoff doc, and get on your way

    I think the "wireframe" UI kits are the most useful, as I can easily spin up a bunch of wireframe options without worrying about styling.

    Might look into something like GatherContent - - not specifically for "apps" but could easily be repurposed to do that.

  • Posted to anyone is actually doing full time remote work?, Nov 09, 2018

    I have the exact opposite experience - I work from a home office and I love it. I don't have to deal with an hour commute each way, I'm better able to schedule my time, I get to walk my dog during lunch.

    I found the biggest way to avoid that "never leave your office" feeling is to A) have a routine and B) actually have an office. I get up, have coffee and breakfast, then sign in for the day. At the end of the day, the lights go out in the office and I don't come back in here unless it's an emergency.

  • Posted to What rucksack / bag do you use?, Oct 16, 2018

    Just moved to the Aer Travel Pack 2 - - it's a little "bulky" for everyday carry, but you can cinch it down so it's smaller, but I find I'd much rather have a super organized bag that can switch from workday to travel than have multiple bags that I have to move things back and forth between.
