dev dump



I've been browsing for different ideas on how to improve my publishing flow for this blog. Not because I need to, just out of curiosity and because I like SSGs. I started to think maybe I should just edit my blod md pages directly in the repository, since github offers a preview pane and everything. And then I clicked the dropdown next to edit pencil it said "open in" .

What do you know an in browser fully featured vscode instance pops up lol. With full ability to do markdown preview to the right and make commits and it's instant updating and renders images etc. Wowwie!

Jk it's not fully featured, but you can install certain plugins, relevant to the task at hand (markdown linters, themes, etc.), and even sync your settings. Gooped.

You can also supply a css file path for any you want to apply to the markdown preview itself, meaning you can pretty much make the preview look like what the deployed version will. Wowwie.

# browser blogs

I like reading about browsers and have even worked on (read: downloaded src, felt heat radiating from machine) chromium before. Some blogs I check out are the v8 dev (opens new window) which is about features of the v8 js engine, and chrome status roadmap (opens new window) which features upcoming features in next version. They each have a post dedicated to them with links to the specifications, motivations, chromium source, and documentation. I guess because chrome is a weird mix of public/private, it feels a little like corporate espionage. Titillating.
