I’m going to do a stream this afternoon of some client work, working on a big ol Vue component with some Vuex action, within a prototype.
I’ll start at about 15:15 UTC.
🎧 I’ve always been fond of Echo Park by Feeder. Such a beautiful album: https://open.spotify.com/album/2AqgHBVRkki14FLTOK2eU7?si=vH66nqcDRAuiQmlS0LBAxQ
My Bonsai Tree is no longer. The poor little tree boi died.
I am a terrible plant parent.
I’m super digging people creating feed of their Feedbin likes, so I’ve jumped on the bandwagon.

Thanks to Dave Rupert and Robin Rendle for their work on this.
This Google Fonts subsetting thing is cool. Append your url with
&text=with the characters you want.
- With subsetting (~21k): https://cdpn.io/andybelldesign/debug/95773da82c7eaf769a6a9fb86c563c9d
- Without subsetting (~11k): https://cdpn.io/andybelldesign/debug/b993258f2a59ce956eae99d94fe48ab5
I only use Playfair for headings on the new piccalilli site and I’ll still serve the font locally, but generating it like this is hella useful.
Nice work, fonts team!
On the WIP piccalilli site with Playfair Display (900) and Courier Prime (400):
- Before subsetting: 55kb
- After subsetting: 17kb
Fonts served locally still, but generated with Google Fonts instead of Font Squirrel.
I could almost fit one React in that space.
A slice of apple pie is $2.50 in Jamaica and $3 in The Bahamas.

I’m going to do a stream this afternoon of me starting the post/tutorial template on the new https://piccalil.li site.
I’m also giving Firefox another run.
I’ll start at about 15:00 UTC.
Some advice for both designers and devs.
Your first pass at something will almost always not be optimal, but you’ve got something to work with and iterate on.
Brute-force the solution and then optimise it after, instead of complicating things from the outset.
