TailwindCSS is hands-down my most useful CSS tool of 2017. It’s a fantastic helper to create utility-first CSS. I’ve been working with it since its first public release and I’m still more than happy to have it.
Today I found out a way to make it even more useful. Say you’re having a Parent Theme that you use for a lot of projects, where each project implements a child theme that needs to adjust properties such colors, breakpoints or font stacks.

I rediscovered Alfred and I’m confused why I ever stopped using it in the first place. It’s a fantastic tool and so much more than an application launcher. If you already like the basic functionality you should consider buying the Powerpack extension to be able to make use of custom Workflows.

I can’t even count anymore, how often I’ve tried working with another Editor than Sublime. Especially Atom has caught my attention quite a few times. But every time I tried to actually use it I ended up being frustrated and jump back to trusty old Sublime.
I’ve been using Day One for years and I’m really grateful for who they made regular journaling work for me. It’s hard to argue that whatever kind of journal system one employs: it’s worthless if you don’t actually use it. Continue reading →
2017 was the second year I’ve spent Pentecost at the beautiful river Ardèche in Southern France. This was out first vacation with the VW van. Good times, looking forward to future trips. Continue reading →
