Wildcard: Spreadsheet-Driven Customization of Web Applications
Many Web applications do not meet the precise needs of their users. Browser extensions offer a way to customize web applications, but most people do not have the programming skills to implement their own extensions. In this paper, we present spreadsheet-driven customization, a technique that enables end users to customize software without doing any traditional programming. The idea is to augment an application’s UI with a spreadsheet that is synchronized with the application’s data. When the user manipulates the spreadsheet, the underlying data is modified and the changes are propagated to the UI, and vice versa.

How Autotracking Works
Vue.js: The Documentary
A well produced 30 minute documentary (from the creators of the previously popular Ember.js documentary) focused on Evan You, the development of Vue.js, its position in our ecosystem, and the userbase.
While I think there are still rough edges (like why can’t I put a list in a blockquote? Why can’t I add a class to a link? Why can’t I arrow-key through the block chooser?), I’m a big fan overall. And not just conceptually anymore. I made it one of my 2020 goals to get CSS-Tricks onto Gutenberg, and so I hopped to that right away in January.
How I used React-Loadable to more than halve my React app’s load time
React-Loadable provides you with a component you can use to load a React component later, rather than immediately as you load the React app.
Why the GOV.UK Design System team changed the input type for numbers
To provide users with a good service, government organisations usually need to collect data. Lots of data. The GOV.UK Design System team creates patterns and components that let users enter their data in an easy and accessible way. The last thing we want to do is create barriers to users completing a task and force them to find an alternative method of using the service, such as phoning a helpline.
Should you self-host Google Fonts?
To answer the question in the title of this post: yes it’s better to self-host as the performance gains are substantial. Of course your mileage may vary as it will depend on your exact site so test, test, test, but I would imagine it would be the better option, from a performance perspective, for most sites. 另附：Routed Gothic Font
Serverless Attack Vectors
This ~50 minute talk explores what sort of attacks you may come up against when working with serverless architectures and what can be done to defend such infrastructures/apps. 另附：Why the ‘WHY’ matters more than the ‘WHAT’ in Serverless!.
Mathematics for the adventurous self-learner
Self-studying mathematics is hard - it’s an emotional journey as much as an intellectual one and it’s the kind of journey I imagine many people start but then drop off after a few months. So I also share (at the end) the practices and mindset that have for me allowed this hobby to continue through the inevitable ups and downs of life (raising two young boys, working at a startup, and moving states!)
Exploring Transfer Learning with T5: the Text-To-Text Transfer Transformer
In “Exploring the Limits of Transfer Learning with a Unified Text-to-Text Transformer”, we present a large-scale empirical survey to determine which transfer learning techniques work best and apply these insights at scale to create a new model that we call the Text-To-Text Transfer Transformer (T5). We also introduce a new open-source pre-training dataset, called the Colossal Clean Crawled Corpus (C4). The T5 model, pre-trained on C4, achieves state-of-the-art results on many NLP benchmarks while being flexible enough to be fine-tuned to a variety of important downstream tasks. In order for our results to be extended and reproduced, we provide the code and pre-trained models, along with an easy-to-use Colab Notebook to help get started.
V8 release v8.1
Today we are releasing React 16.13.0. It contains bugfixes and new deprecation warnings to help prepare for a future major release.

Go 1.14 is released
The latest Go release, version 1.14, arrives six months after Go 1.13. Most of its changes are in the implementation of the toolchain, runtime, and libraries. As always, the release maintains the Go 1 promise of compatibility. We expect almost all Go programs to continue to compile and run as before. Module support in the go command is now ready for production use, and we encourage all users to migrate to Go modules for dependency management.
CouchDB 3.0 Now Available
CouchDB is a mature, JSON-document oriented NoSQL database, and one of the earlier modern generation of databases to be called ‘NoSQL’. 3.0 is an interesting release designed to path the way to a FoundationDB-powered version 4.0, with a curious side effect being a drop in the default maximum document size from 4GB to 8MB. 另附：StormDB: A Tiny, Lightweight, JSON-Based ‘Database’.
The Facts: Mozilla’s DNS over HTTPs (DoH)
The current insecure DNS system leaves billions of people around the world vulnerable because the data about where they go on the internet is unencrypted. We’ve set out to change that. In 2017, Mozilla began working on the DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) protocol to close this privacy gap within the web’s infrastructure. Today, Firefox is enabling encrypted DNS over HTTPS by default in the US giving our users more privacy protection wherever and whenever they’re online. 另附：Securing Firefox with WebAssembly.
Let’s Encrypt Has Issued a Billion Certificates
We issued our billionth certificate on February 27, 2020. We’re going to use this big round number as an opportunity to reflect on what has changed for us, and for the Internet, leading up to this event. In particular, we want to talk about what has happened since the last time we talked about a big round number of certificates - one hundred million.
Your new web notifications experience is here
At Universe, we introduced a new web notifications experience for GitHub. After months of testing, learning, and iterating, the new web notifications is now the default experience on GitHub.com.
The fastai book - draft
These draft notebooks cover an introduction to deep learning, fastai, and PyTorch. fastai is a layered API for deep learning; for more information, see the fastai paper. Everything in this repo is copyright Jeremy Howard and Sylvain Gugger, 2020 onwards. These notebooks will be used for a course we’re teaching in San Francisco from March 2020, and will be available as a MOOC from around July 2020. In addition, our plan is that these notebooks will form the basis of this book, which you can pre-order. It will not have the same GPL restrictions that are on this draft.

Curveball - A typescript microframework
At Bad Gateway we’ve been using this in a variety of (mostly API) projects for the past few years, and it’s been working really well for us. We’re also finding that it tends to be a pretty ‘sticky’ product. People exposed to it tend to want to use it for their next project too.
NodeCG is a broadcast graphics framework and application. It enables you to write complex, dynamic broadcast graphics using the web platform. NodeCG has no graphics or drawing primitives of its own. Instead, NodeCG provides a structure for your code and an API to facilitate moving data between the dashboard, the server, and your graphics. It makes no assumptions about how to best code a graphic, and gives you complete freedom to use whatever libraries, frameworks, tools, and methodologies you want.
Hex Engine is a 2D Game Engine for the browser, written in TypeScript. It is designed to feel similar to React. Hex Engine implements a variant of the popular Entity-Component-System model, adapting it to make Components radically composable. In Hex Engine, every Component is a function, and Components can call special Hook functions to define their behavior in the game engine.
Panolens.js is an event-driven and WebGL based panorama viewer. Lightweight and flexible. It’s built on top of Three.JS.
Gestalt is a set of React UI components that enforces Pinterest’s design language. We use it to streamline communication between designers and developers by enforcing a bunch of fundamental UI components. This common set of components helps raise the bar for UX & accessibility across Pinterest.
Portable and lightweight cross platform application development framework. In electron and NWjs you have to install NodeJs and hundreds of dependency libraries. Embedded Chromium and Node creates large overhead and makes even simple apps like “hello world” considerable in size. Neutralino offers a lightweight and portable SDK which is an alternative for Electron and NW.js also with many advantages. Neutralinojs vs Electron vs NW.js

Understanding the rules of Composition in interface design
The rules of composition are used by people in many spheres, the most basic of them — painting, music, literature, architecture — but how does that concept apply to UI design? For all the time I’ve read about Composition, I especially liked the book “Typography” from Emil Ruder.
在工作中遇到了自己的兴趣，是一件非常有缘分的事情。与石窟的缘分，起源于二零一六年的夏天。我前往位于印度马哈拉施特拉邦的 Ajanta Caves 和 Ellora Caves，追寻佛教艺术。当我在 Ajanta 看到 1号石窟「莲花手菩萨」的蛋彩画时，心中不禁难过了。这令人平静的艺术，竟落到如此残败。阴暗中，潮湿混合着浓烈的蝙蝠尿味。从那时起，总想着在未来的旅行中，能够为石窟艺术做些什么。机缘总是悄然而来。四年后，部门决定团建去敦煌。那是我第一次去莫高窟，背着赵声良院长《敦煌石窟艺术简史》就出发了。
