    I did a bit of poking around the Open Weather API with svelte JS. I’m still a very long way off from my dream of making a webapp wrapper for reddit, but at least I’m starting to learn the basics...

    I did a bit of poking around the Open Weather API with svelte JS. I’m still a very long way off from my dream of making a webapp wrapper for reddit, but at least I’m starting to learn the basics of working with API keys and whatnot.

    Also, I’ll be taking a chemistry (reteach and retake because most everyone failed it) and math exam (it’s an extra course) tomorrow, so wish me luck!

    “We will win — because we have to!” — some random guy from the Squadron 42 trailer. I like that quote because it’s basically me whenever I face tough exams/classes/whatever. I may not like it, but...

    While I can sort of sympathize with the problem of funding FOSS projects, portraying a glorified ESlint config as a “Standard” style guide and linter, and attempting to monetize it, is just wrong.

    Shouldn’t you at least be able to use ES6? After four years, it should be well supported enough.

    so you can't get off Babel unless you're using ES5 directly.

    I’m just a beginner, but if the tech stack you use isn’t too complicated, maybe I can help. Could you please send my /u/starchturrets account on reddit an invite to /r/CriticalBiblical?

    How is JavaScript garbage? Personally, I find it fun to code in, even when it’s just vanilla without any Vue or similar frameworks.

    If you’re just doing a static site, try Netlify for hosting.
