Things that are hard about building an SPA:
- Managing the back button yourself
- Managing scroll state yourself
- Managing focus state yourself
A lot of the nuts-and-bolts stuff that the browser is supposed to do automatically now becomes your responsibility. I think a lot of people underestimate this when building an SPA.

Here's my new portable computer. The case was finally printed successfully so I was able to make sure all the electronics actually fit. The cables need a lot of wrangling so I might look for some shorter ones. The list of components is on my blog:
This was a fun custom deck to make. I'm happy to have a sturdy little computer with a mechanical keyboard that I can take with me.
I forgot more things:
- Messaging (Signal, Threema, Keybase, Wire)
- Git (Gitlab, Keybase)
We use Rocketchat and Discourse at Elephant Branded.
I run Solus on an X220 and don't hit any issues on a day to day basis.
It's easier now than its ever been to move away from data leaches like Google, Facebook, Microsoft.
Mostly for tech people though. Still not for the everyone.
Oh, and @Tutanota@mastodon.social for email. Which is great and getting better all the time. I don't fancy self hosting email. Bit of a minefield.
Although there are drawbacks to snaps. Whenever I create a new doc with Nextcloud/Collabora it's in German, and with a snap there doesn't seem to be a way to change this 😐
Slowly moving from big tech is going well. So far I've got:
- RSS reader (Miniflux)
- file storage (Nextcloud)
- Docs (Collabora Code)
- IRC (The Lounge)
- Photo backup (Nextcloud)
- Notes (Joplin - synced with nextcloud)
- Read it later (Wallabag)
All either docker images or snaps using lets encrypt. It's so much easier than it used to be!
Need a decent self hosted photo sharing app now.
Average at best.
Not the artist. Web developer. If something is broken, it's probably my fault.
