Hey all, welcome to this week’s open thread!
Looking to read something cool? Here are some cool links from around the web from folks using or talking about Glitch!
Say hello, share what you’re working on, tell us your hopes and dreams, etc. By the way, here’s my COLRv1 duck, what’s yours?
A project I really enjoy popped up from the ether this week and I thought I would share it here:
Four Seasons is a simple yet thoughtful Sunday Site, which is a community of folks who gather one Sunday a month to experiment with HTML. I like watching the art develop each season, it’s very cute.
Also, here is my duck. Can you guess my favorite color? lol
this is a really cool and interesting game. it is basically a modern version of tetris.
and heres my duck
im gonna go with the least obvious answer, white.
This is my one!
Fun fact: I was reading that article a few time ago
This seems cool!
The google trick is awesome, read tons of articles about google easter eggs and never found nothing about that! Also, I like the project! css-only.
This is awesome!
Well, because of the duck, I guess purple or green, but @nobody’s answer is a good guess, too
So I’ve been busy with irl stuff, but I’m still using skills from glitch I picked up a couple of years ago. For example for a certain “art” class we are required to create a portfolio site to store our “art”. Everyone ended up using Weebly but I kind of didn’t like managing it that way, so I decided to take
eleventy-img out for a spin and created a two page website with Vite + Tailwind + DaisyUi that is entirely prerendered. Currently Cloudflare Pages has no caching, so their poor build system is resizing and reencoding approximately 128 small to large images. It actually manages to do this in just 10 minutes, but I recently ran it to some trouble with high resolution images where
eleventy-img would just segfault but I got around that by telling the underlying
sharp module to put in less
effort (a numerical option in the config).
The site contains two pages
- A css grid page containing thumbnails to all “artworks”
- A page where the larger version of the image is displayed centered and various download links are provided.
eleventy-img helps is that I can use the same html across both the fullsize and thumbnail and the browser will automatically pick the best one for the situation. I’ve also set the lazy loading and async and decode options. So don’t worry your browser will not be trying to load a hundred images at once .
Here is a “duck” I photoshopped recently, try to spot what is wrong (not the background).
Edit: @wh0 is correct saying that the head of the duck is wrong.
Well… The eyes? Or is it this white part?
Alright I’ll edit in answer later tonight
try to spot what is wrong
looks like entire duck head replace with uh crow (?) head
Glitch app by the Google Chrome devs that demonstrates the new COLRv1 font format
If you’re viewing this on the latest version of Chrome. Go ahead, give it a whirl.
on behalf of us one or two non-chrome users, nooooooo
share what you’re working on
learning web assembly, web workers, cache api, and whatever else it takes to make a darned web app that decompresses files. and some logic to process certain file types once they’re decompressed.
getting good use out of the so-called “best regex trick” for replacing parentheses with square brackets except for in quoted strings, so that I can use JSON.parse to parse a non-JSON document. this was almost cool enough of a problem to develop into a coding interview, but it’s too gimmicky imo.
really hoping to hear some Glitch staff talk about what’s in development
That’s a rickroll, Not going to click there!
what an absurd accusation. it is exactly as described.
i recognize that url… but i clicked on it anyways
No matter how many times you get rickrolled, you will always smile when seeing this masterpiece
glitch staff don’t be shy about answering this part
