Like everyone in the current situation, I miss being able to do a lot of different things such as hugging my mum, attending live events or being able to travel.
Recently, I also noticed I began to miss some immaterial things too, notably discovering new music to listen to totally unpredictably and not through an algorithm. Those bands and songs for which I fall in love for no other particular reason than the fact that they remind me a good memory.
In this particular tool, I defer the heavy work to Web Workers so that the UI does not find itself in a blocking state.
It is possible to populate Gatsby websites using Cloud Firestore with existing plugins and CMS but, you might be looking to implement such solution by yourself, without dependencies, to get the full control on the process.
In this article I will show you, step by step, how to collect Firestore data to build Gatsby static websites. …
This last Christmas break, with the exception of visiting my parents for a couple of days (after having forced myself into a sort of autolockdown period first), I didn’t have any big plans. That’s why, I took the opportunity to improve my software development knowledge.
As I better learn concepts by applying them to real applications rather than writing examples, I decided to create a little scanner progressive web app (PWA) entirely made with the web.
I called it Rebel Scan because it’s just a little scanner app, you rebel scum!
The past few days, I have re-build from the ground up the website of DeckDeckGo with the goals to extract static content from our editor for slides and, to develop the foundation to internationalize our platform.
At first, I was looking to experiment a new method but, did not find any which worked well for me. That’s why I developed this new website with Gatsby using my own recipe, again.
Doing so, I learned…
I am not sure anyone will ever need the following tricks but, at my client’s place, we have an application which can only be accessed through an URL which contains a dynamic base64 parameter. Needless to say, it makes its local development a bit inconvenient.
In addition, I have to admit, I am not a big fan of CLI’s options which can automatically open browser. Even though I mostly use the Chrome Incognito mode for development purpose, I like to switch often between browsers to try out what I developed.
Finally, I don’t use bookmarks (don’t judge me) and, I…
As a result, I notably had to create a custom, generic lazy-loaded modal.
This article has been published in November 2020. The solution has been tested with Angular v11 and Tailwind v2.

Once upon a time, there was a compiler that generates Web Components and builds high performance web apps called StencilJS. Among all the build-time tool ever created, it had for goal to build faster, more capable components that worked across all major frameworks.
On the internet next door, there lived a boy (me 😉). And the boy watched the compiler grow more and more effective, more and more developer friendly with each passing year.
One day, as he was developing something new in his beloved project DeckDeckGo, the boy had the idea to experiment a feature of the compiler he…
We have received thirty-two Pull Requests which not only helped us to solve features and issues but definitely pushed forward our editor for slides 🚀.
We would like to thank once again each and every person who gave us a hand and, the least we can do, give them credits back by listing here afterwards all their amazing work!
Note: following contributions are sort by date ascendant.
We aim to be transparent. …
One of my current client requested a list of the bare minimum information required to publish their app in the App Store and Google Play. Once again, I did not remember where I saved such check-list 😅.
That’s why, instead of charging them for such process, I had the idea to wrap up these information in form of a public blog post I’ll try, hopefully with your help and inputs, to maintain up-to-date.
This blog post has been updated for the last time Tuesday 3rd November 2020.
Following questions have to be answered in order to distribute the app in…
