I’ve recently released my first browser extension: Omnivore List Popup! It’s available for Firefox and Chrome (and other Chromium-based browsers, like Vivaldi).
In the past, I’ve been using Pocket for temporarily storing pages (as a read-it-later tool). Recently, I switched to the open-source app Omnivore. But there was one problem: I really missed using my favorite browser extension In My Pocket, which is only available for Pocket’s API. So, I built my own extension to replicate my favorite functionality from In My Pocket for the new Omnivore platform!
So far, I’ve received good feedback from the Omnivore community, and I’m a happy user among a few other users (according to the extension stats)!
As the name suggests, it’s a small library of chart components for React. So far, there are only two charts available: a simple bar chart with labels and a pie chart (without any labels or legend). The bar chart component is an adapted and cleaned-up version of a component I’ve used for landing pages in the past. It’s basically just a bunch of styled HTML. The pie chart component is brand new and the first SVG-based chart in the library!
Here’s another roundup of my favorite websites that I (re-)discovered in the recent months. As in the last post, all of these pages are special to me because of their creative design and/or great content. If this year’s roundup had a theme, it would probably be “bold”.
This post documents my journey to find a cloud storage provider that is better than Microsoft OneDrive and migrating all my cloud files there.
In general, I want to store (some of) my files in the cloud for these reasons:
I want to have the data available on different devices (mostly a MacBook and an iPhone).
I want to back up the most important files, so I don’t need to worry about losing access if I lose or break my devices.
I want to share specific files and folders with other people from time to time (for collaborations or just to share a folder with images or videos).
All in all, I’ve accumulated around 1 terabyte of files in the last years. This includes:
Photos from different cameras and smartphones (~750 GB)
Music projects, including recorded and processed audio files (~170 GB)
MP3s with music that’s not available on any streaming platforms (~45 GB)
Design projects, including assets and exports (~25 GB)
Backups from other devices, video game save files, etc. (~22 GB)
Videos and video projects (~17.5 GB)
Text documents, scans of letters, etc. (~1.5 GB)
With this amount of data, I’ve run into the storage limit of my current storage provider, Microsoft OneDrive. With my Microsoft 365 Personal subscription (69€ per year), I’m only entitled to 1 TB of storage (plus some extra gigabytes from some special discounts or events).
I recently went through my slides about webapp accessibility and gave them a little update and expanded some sections with newfound knowledge. I wanted to share the slides here as well to make them more accessible to everyone who’s looking for them. So here you go!
