Laws of Simplicity as Originally Typeset — maeda.pm

The presentation download linked in his article is an awesome reminder towards simplicity. Thanks John for putting it out there for all of us. 

A friend of mine was looking for my early sides regarding the Laws of Simplicity, and I found some old parts that look like they’ll do just fine. Via Google Slides they are here, and as a Keynote file they are here. If you want a PPT, just export the Google Slides and you can […]

Gutenberg -project

Gutenberg

This is the first post I am trying to write using the Gutenberg plugin for WordPress. I am going to keep this short and sweet as I am testing it as well. You have to try this plugin demo understand the potential of this plugin. So far the demo is great. For a developer preview, this is mind blowing. These are very early stages of development and this looks very promising for the future of WordPress.

If you are a WordPress developer and you haven't tried to use this plugin to  test your plugins/themes, you should start today. It is pretty stable considering it is a developer beta release. 

You can get the plugin here. Don't go by the ratings on the plugin repository. The development of the plugin happens on github here and feel free to contribute to it. 

Tour de france theme updated

Few years back , six to be precise, I was fascinated about chrome and its features so much that I created a chrome theme for tour de france. Now, I don’t use chrome, except for testing purposes. Safari rocks my life these days 🙂

That said, I was pretty surprised that my theme had 500 weekly users as on date. I was mind blown by the audience that the theme receives after 6 years of dormancy. Given the Tour de France season now, I thought I will give it some love. I did a minor update to the theme. Given the friendly chrome developer I am 😛 , I wanted to ensure that the chrome web store policies and  other conditions are met. I made some minor tweaks to the theme and updated the screenshots.

Unfortunately, due to lack of time, this theme isn’t retina optimized yet. Yeah kinda non starter, right? If you are one of them. Sorry! The minor update was not so minor when you consider that I spent 3 hours fixing things to adhere to chrome web store standards. But optimizing is a time consuming enough that I could work on creating a new theme than change this one. May be I will get to that later one of these days.  The theme still great for the tour de France season. Until the next big update, please try out the theme and let me know how it works for you.
