After several hours of toiling with Disk Utility, diskutil and dd on macOS the furthest I got was to experience the same issues as another individual who posted on Apple Exchange 3 years ago - their question unresolved, until now.
Hand-picked components and libraries to help you build your next hot app.
One of the best parts of building with React is discovering new and awesome open source components to use. Rather than just throwing the kitchen sink at you, here’s a short list of React components and libraries I feel are truly awesome.
GitHub's new policy on the use of its services for the creation of WMDs.
Gitea announced just last week gitea.com was now live and accepting user registrations while the Gitea development team prepares for their eventual move off GitHub. I was excited to see this as, just a few days prior, I sent some encouragement after myself leaving GitHub. Then I signed-up.
How to migrate a website hosted on Jekyll into an existing Hugo site.
Three years ago I started a website called hackcabin.com to scratch an itch after discovering Hugo and starting development on After Dark. At the time my primary website was running Jekyll and build times were nearing the 2-3 minute mark for little more than 70-80 blog posts.
Why I deleted a 10 year-old GitHub account and how I expect it will improve my development workflow in the Saka New Year.
The P20 Pro blinked itself on the morning after Nyepi, alarm sounding as the Hindu island of Bali reopened at the first new moon in March. I looked over at the planning board on the wall. Unlike the day prior, it was now filled with cards ready to be transitioned to the DONE column. Leaving GH wasn’t one.

Thinking about cooking up the next Smashing Magazine? Maybe you’re looking for front-end tools to build a new kind of JAMstack site? Perhaps you’ve just decided to taking a breather from building with React and Angular for a bit. Whatever the reason you just landed on an awesome list.

How to secure your passwords and keep them synced between devices.
After hacking Android onto an HD2 previously running Windows Mobile I quickly became challenged with the task of recalling passwords for frequently used apps – apps like Telegram, ProtonMail, Binance, Snapchat you name it.

How to set-up a two-node Swarm cluster on Digital Ocean using Docker Machine.
Lately I’ve been learning more about cloud architecture and related tooling. Stuff like Lambda, Serverless, AWS CLI and – now that it’s a part of Docker Machine – container orchestration with Docker Swarm clusters.
As an AWS user I’m particularly geeked about the Docker Private Beta, which makes it possible to experiment with Swarm using Amazon Web Services. But rather than waiting for a private beta we’re going to experiment with Docker Swarm using one of my favorite prototyping tools apartfrom the RPi: Digital Ocean.
