On this episode: Updates from Dave's shed, camera options for streaming and Zooming, Discord chats, Headless WordPress block editor musings, custom form controls with ElementInternals, going from a coder to a team leader, and container query updates.
We're talking about threading in Slack or Discord, the continue reading button on a website, Axe software - also a sponsor!, cost benefit of time spent on work, what a day in the life at work is like for Chris and Dave, and musing about whether conferences are going to be a thing again.
Evan You chats with us about Vite. How is Vite so fast? What about tree shaking? How do you convert various formats into ESM and what does Evan recommend? What is the future of Babel? And what the first 2 minutes of a Vite project are like?
Dave's got YouTube dreams, a conversation about Babel, trying to generate a goldilocks level of source code a la Backbone and Underscore, power washing WordPress websites as a career, and an update on Dave's desk.
Nolan Lawson talks with Dave & Chris about his emoji picker element and how styling a Web Component works, why documentation is important, constructable stylesheets, how to build with Svelte, React or other frameworks, and the accessibility story with Web Components.
We're officially on Patreon now and we'd love to have you come join us in the ShopTalk Show Discord and help shape the future of the ShopTalk community. We also talk about Dave's office situation, Notion competition, Elastic Search, how should someone specialize to get a job, and breaking news on the pop up element.
We answer your questions about using a headless WordPress set up, changing WordPress themes and what happens to custom post types, those share buttons on websites, and talk about the 3 recent fav articles that came across our RSS readers.
Dave and Chris talk about recent pandemic purchases, publishing video on the web, more sharing of convoluted processes, some menu bar app ideas, reinvigorating HTML, and writing good git commit messages.
