    1. The writing process also applies to timed writing tasks, such as essay exams.

      It would be very helpful to know the which can be used in the test and the exam it will take me to improve my writing skill.

    1. Writing, on the other hand, gives you the chance to put down your ideas and make them stay put long enough for you to evaluate them

      Before, I think writing is just a way to get a score .But after high school I changed my mind by many articles .It’s the way you can share your crazy ideas.

    1. A user wants to comment on a single parameter name in a function. It is highlighted as a unique part of the syntax tree, and they're not happy with the particular name the author of the MR chose. Problem: The user can only comment on the entire line, because "lines" are considered the most fundamental building block in our Diffs UI.

    1. That thou among the wastes of time must go,

      This "among the wastes of time" is an intriguing phrase. I think it can be interpreted as "the deserts of time" or "something that time no long wants".

    1. With safety of her innocence;

      I find that the speaker may be alluding to different ideas in this line. His daughter, who passed at only six months, will be safeguarded of her innocence as she will not experience any form of hatred or danger in the mortal world. Yet, I also believe it applies to the sacrament of baptism which ties to her innocence. Baptism is performed a few weeks after birth for purity in the eyes of God. Therefore, Mary is pure and innocent as she goes to heaven.

    1. This living hand, now warm and capable

      I feel as if it makes sense that "living hand" is associated with "now warm and capable." I feel as if this means that his life which was once filled with dread and possibly bloodshead was replaced with a persona capable of helping others.

    1. parents’ ruth,

      Really interesting word choice that I've never heard before. Sets the tone of the poem to involve sadness and grief right from the start.

    1. you.

      The audience of the poem is the reader. This is not known until the last word, so it is interesting to reread the poem once more with this idea in mind. The author could have included 'you' earlier in the poem, but purposefully left this until the near end of the poem.

    2. own heart dry of blood

      The author is comparing life to blood. He does it in this line ad again in the next.

    3. now warm and capable

      The poem as a whole is very somber, but leads with words that would make you think otherwise.

That image only contains 200 pixels horizontally, but the browser stretches it to 400px wide or even farther!Luckily, you’ll see there’s an easy “fix” there at the end: our old good friend the width attribute!<img src="example.gif", srcset="example.gif 200w" sizes="(min-width: 400px) 400px, 100vw" width="200" /* <=== TA-DA! */ class="logo">As long as you can specify the width attribute so it reflects the true maximum size of your largest image, you won’t run into this problem of having sizes make your image wider than it naturally should go.

    1. This gem uses a Rack middleware to clear the store object after every request, but that doesn't translate well to background processing with Sidekiq. A companion library, request_store-sidekiq creates a Sidekiq middleware that will ensure the store is cleared after each job is processed, for security and consistency with how this is done in Rack.

    1. data[:users, :[], :name] = 'Matz' # :[] is next index, 0 in this case
    2. A proposal to specify the path for bury with classes as values of a hash arg: {}.bury(users: Array, 0 => Hash, name: Hash, something: 'Value') # {user: [{name: {something: 'Value'}]} So all absent nodes could be created via klass.new

      Didn't understand it at first, but now I think it's a pretty clever/decent solution.

      Just a bit more verbose than one might like...

      At first I had reservations about the fact that this requires you to pass a hash ... or rather, once you start using a hash as your "list", you can't just "switch back" to an array (a "problem" I've noticed in RSpec, where you have some tags that are symbols, and some that are hashes: you have to list the symbols first: describe 'thing', :happy_path, driver: :chrome):

      {}.bury(users: Array, 0, 'Value')
      

      But I think that's okay in practice. Just use a hash for all "elements" in your list:

      {}.bury(users: Array, 0 => 'Value')
      
    3. data = {}.extend XKeys::Auto # Vs ::Hash, uses arrays for int keys data[:users, 0, :name] # nil data[:users, 0, :name, :raise => true] # KeyError data[:users, :[], :name] = 'Matz' # :[] is next index, 0 in this case # {:users=>[{:name=>"Matz"}]} pick = [:users, 0, :name] data[*pick] # Matz data[:users, 0, :accesses, :else => 0] += 1 # {:users=>[{:name=>"Matz", :accesses=>1}]}
    1. # Parallel Ruby universes ("Rubyverses") - A proposed interface for # parallel, "semi-private" method or method-and-data spaces via # "closely associated" objects.
    1. Model theory recognizes and is intimately concerned with a duality: it examines semantical elements (meaning and truth) by means of syntactical elements (formulas and proofs) of a corresponding language
    1. Researchers reported that large populations consistently develop highly similar category systems. This may be relevant to lexical aspects of large communication networks and cultures such as folksonomies and language or human communication, and sense-making in general.
    1. The words type, concept, property, quality, feature and attribute (all used in describing things) tend to be used with different verbs. E.g. Suppose a rose bush is defined as a plant that is "thorny", "flowering" and "bushy". You might say a rose bush instantiates these three types, or embodies these three concepts, or exhibits these three properties, or possesses these three qualities, features or attributes.
    1. For example, in the Dyirbal language, the morpheme balam marks each entity in its noun class with the semantic property of edibility,[8] and Burmese encodes the semantic property for the ability to cut or pierce. Encoding the functional property for transportation, housing, and speech are also attested in world languages.
    1. All I needed to do was configure my bash so it will always start vim in server mode if it is not already and to always use the --remote-tab switch when opening files.

    1. oynement that wolde clense and byte,

      Going off the last comment I think Chaucer here is suggesting that the summoner is so far from being a good person there is no cure for his lack of morals

    2. a yong Squiér, A lovyere and a lusty bacheler,

      Interesting Chaucer presents the squire right after the knight, it makes it seem as though they are foils for each other meant to emphasize their different stages in development as knights

    1. Record filters allow you to require an instance of a particular class (or one of its subclasses) or a value that can be used to locate an instance of the object. If the value does not match, it will call find on the class of the record. This is particularly useful when working with ActiveRecord objects.
    1. We really don’t think laws and “imaginary property” have any place

    1. Now I can only smile.

      This makes me think of the narrator being bedridden in old age or sickness and her partner is no longer alive. Since flowers and hospitals also have a close tie like flowers and relationships, the author might be trying to convey how the narrator's relationship with her partner changed over time with old age but still kept the same in some aspects.

    2. your flowers

      The use of "your flowers" instead of just "flowers" insinuates that the partner isn't worried that the narrator doesn't want flowers in general, but, rather, the partner is worried that the narrator wouldn't want flowers from him specifically. This makes me think there has been turmoil in the relationship.

    1. rages

      The poets uses what would rather be a simple verb as a powerful verb to paint the picture of how the moon is the most outstanding object at night. This is probably to show that love can power through tough situation. But the moon has phases.

    1. <Masonry> component implementation could be something like this (very drafty)
    2. The CardLayout creates a store in context and the Card creates a standardized div container and registers it to the store so that the CardLayout has access to that DOM element. Then in afterUpdate you can move the DOM elements into columns and Svelte will not try to put them back where they go. It's a bit messy but it works.
    3. I think that maybe instead of using the prefixed $$ globals, a more "natural" solution could look something like this: import { slots, props, parent } from '@component';
    1. So haunt thy days and chill thy dreaming nights

      It kind of seems like he is talking about feeling dead and sort of contradicting the title This living hand... because you get cold when you die and he's talking about haunting the day.

    2. now warm and capable

      Is he maybe talking about something that happened in the past? I feel like he's saying that it's "warm and capable" now, but before now it was cold etc.

    1. But of course, there are UX implications. For example, it can be harder to select the text, and the entire element needs fairly complex styling to create clear focus and hover states. There are also accessibility implications, like the fact that the content of the entire card is read before it is announced as a link.
    1. A hosted Kit is the easiest way to add Font Awesome to your website. It's a collection of icons, styles, and settings that allows you to make changes and update versions without pushing code.
    1. To explain further what exactly I’m building, the animated background is a pure code equivalent to the old music video, but runs as long as the full length of the album, though without any event triggers to tie it to the music (the animation runs continuously for the full amount of time that the uninterrupted album lasts, but does not pause or jump to a different location in the animation). It’s also extremely slow animation

    1. Say I have a separate API server that provides content for a Sapper route. I could just query that API in my route's preload function, but if the content changes rarely, I don't want to incur that cost for every page load and would much rather cache responses from the API on the Sapper side.
    1. With the caveat that hero worship can be gross, distorting, and unhelpful to everyone involved, Svelte author Rich Harris (@rich_harris on Twitter) is one of my favorite open source developers. In the JS community he’s well-known among tool authors for spreading interesting ideas. He’s the creator of many open source projects including Rollup, the bundler of choice for many libraries including React and Vue.

    1. This overloaded word is also non-jargon for a proper morphism.
    2. notion

      I don't feel very comfortable with this choice of wording, perhaps because the dictionary definition includes such wishy-washy definitions as "A belief or opinion." "An impulse or whim."

      Why not choose a better word like "property"? Which is what they called it here, for example.

      (Even "concept" or "idea", though just as vague, might be better than notion?)

    1. Those frameworks are used in a similar fashion, but conceptually use quite different approaches (Vue is a more traditional one, a library, and Svelte is a "dissapearing framework").

      interesting wording: Svelte is a "disappearing framework".

    1. I'm afraid there's only so much the docs & tutorials can do about something like this actually. When you first read them, you don't get Svelte well enough (since you're reading a tutorial...) for this to make sense to you. Then you try something, encounter a behaviour, question it, understand better... That's learning.
    1. Looking at a few isolated examples doesn’t really represent the enormity of the maintenance problem when you modify objects that you shouldn’t. To understand this point of view, it’s helpful to take a step back and look at moral philosophy (aka ethics).
    1. What links all these things is the way they pass the responsibility for upholding norms — for creating “school” — onto individual children and families.

    1. Thus, in theory at least, any narrative can be actualized by any medium which can communicate the two time orders

      This is true as it is important that within the medium that the two times are independent and not dependent on each other.

    2. novelization," which transforms already exhibited films into novels)

      this is a very interesting idea that i have never thought of. But i don't think that it would work as well because for me i like of make my own mental image of the characters while reading the book. so if it were a movie i would immediately think of the actors that played them in the movie.

    1. The @const indicates that the value is read-only (i.e. it cannot be assigned to or mutated in an expression such as an event handler), and communicates, through its similarity to const in JavaScript, that it only applies to the current scope (i.e. the current block or element).
