  1. It’s been, uh, an unexpected three years
    oh my god twitter doesn’t include alt text from images in their API
  2. AirDrop is my favorite social media app. No pressure to post, no likes or feeds, you just see which of your friends are using their phone near you.
  3. Made a couple of Alfred workflows yesterday: one to quickly grab the size of text, another to open @tot_app github.com/j-f1/alfred-workflows
  4. It was fun (and a little bit stressful haha) to build the graphics for this! Check out the @observablehq notebook I used to make them and try your hand at making your own if you want :) observablehq.com/@j-f1/brown-class-of-2026-regular-decision-acceptance-graphics @the_herald/1509668616848904193
  5. Super excited to see this! Some of the coolest things I built while at @Neeva 🧵 @Neeva/1504111623740473344
  6. Also, for the five people who want to be able to await a JSX expression inside of JSX, that now formats better :) @PrettierCode/1503953341587820544
  7. I made an @eleven_ty template language extension for JSX! I designed it to resemble React syntax at a high level, but you don’t have to use any client-side JSX and it’s pretty easy to do async processing in your template ✨ npmjs.com/package/eleventy-hast-jsx

  8. Thread (7 tweets) where I explore how Swift enums work in general, and how Optional works in particular. Swift is neat! @jed_fox1/1477433842927611907
  9. Updated my prompt to tell me how deeply nested I am:

  10. This brief interruption to your irregularly scheduled tech content is brought to you by the world’s only* ice skating marching band. I had a ton of fun trying to stay simultaneously upright and on beat last night with the rest of @BrownUBandStand! ⛸🥁 (*probably) @TylerDumontNews/1466905862937718796
  11. Built with @observablehq + @d3js_org. The live collaboration feature was super helpful! @li_goldstein/1459204858251292675
  12. Picture-in-Picture for arbitrary content is such a genius idea! @YoinkApp/1439991174891286534
  13. I made a fun little tool yesterday: a parser for decoding C/Objective-C type strings. Now you can quickly find out that c12@0:4@8 is the type of a method with the signature - (char)arg1:(id)arg1! observablehq.com/@j-f1/objc-type-decoder
  14. I do interactive rebases fairly often so I thought I’d try my hand at making a GUI for editing the git-rebase-todo files…

  15. There’s only one popular programming language with that particular value in it…

  1. …in reply to @TejasKumar_
    @TejasKumar_ @kentcdodds I checked Kernighan’s book “The UNIX Progming Environment” (from 1984, he’s one of the creators of Unix) and it looks like it’s short for “user file system:” archive.org/details/unixprogramminge0000kern/page/64/mode/2up

  2. …in reply to @suchipi
    @suchipi @kentcdodds Interesting duality — extracting a function limits the things it can depend on, nesting it limits the things that can depend on it.
  3. …in reply to @AryanJabbari
    @AryanJabbari @dan_abramov But you can do 10000..toLocaleString() (What’s happening is you’re allowed to have a trailing . in number literals so you have to have a second . to indicate that you want to access a property of the number. Yay syntactic ambiguity!)
  4. Really liking how @FiraCode v4 makes the @yarnpkg progress bar look!

  5. …in reply to @jsngr
    @jsngr When you flash the Shuffle with Square’s custom firmware, it lets you accept payments offline. You input prices by dictating into the mic on a pair of EarPods. You then use a standard 3.5mm cable and a web app to sync via a laptop when back online. It has incredible battery life!
  6. Cool @github iOS app features: long press • the notifications tab to open the filter options • the explore tab to focus the search bar and open the keyboard
