Angular 2 is terrible

“We used Angular 2 for our frontend. I was not involved in this decision, and I came to work on the frontend relatively late in the project. This post is not meant to be a comprehensive review of the framework, but rather a collection of observations after using it for a little more than two weeks. I don’t claim that using it for two weeks makes me an expert, and welcome any corrections, but for what it’s worth, I consider using Angular 2 one of the biggest mistakes for our project …

Laravel Blade directive for conditional HTML classes

Sometimes you need to add classes to HTML elements conditionally, and when you try to do that you almost always end up with messy syntax. Here’s the example in Blade:

<article class="post post-{{ $post->slug }} @if ($post->featured) post-featured @endif @if ($post->sticky) post-sticky @endif">

I am again an individual with my own creative ideas, perceptions, values and beliefs. It may take me a while, but from what I believe – I’m now able to express such beliefs again. I am no longer part of the collective  iCult machine whose dirty, worn-out, greasy and naive internal mechanisms of bullying, harassment and mind-games push out shiny and polished iPhones every year ….”
