Yes, I rick­rolled Jenn Schiffer. Twice.

Before I get on with that, I just wanna say that I’m ex­tremely grate­ful for the sup­port I’ve re­ceived for Jsoning. This useless” npm pack­age I cre­ated a while ago, for stor­ing data in a JSON file safely, **recently hit 18k monthly down­loads and 29k to­tal down­loads! STAGGERING NUMBERS!

I kinda owe it to my good friend SudhanPlayz, who used it in his pop­u­lar mu­sic Discord bot. I had a lot of fun with this new achieve­ment of mine, in­clud­ing a post in the GitHub Discussions of the said mu­sic Discord bot’s repos­i­tory.

Pure sat­is­fac­tion is when you can start a post in a fo­rum by say­ing that you’re the au­thor of a pack­age, and no one slaugh­ters you for say­ing that.

Although there’s not much of a dif­fer­ence on the num­ber of stars the repo has, there has been quite a few new pull re­quests and in­di­rect con­tri­bu­tions through Discord. So once again, thanks for all the help and sup­port.

Other than merg­ing PRs and pub­lish­ing changes to npm, I haven’t ac­tu­ally done any­thing se­ri­ous ex­cept for a mi­nor Glitch app that con­verts screen­shots into MacOS-like mock­ups, based on this cool tool. I did get a new idea for a pro­ject though, one that is a lit­tle bit un­usual from what I do and some­thing that is use­ful even for non-de­vel­op­ers. And I’m pretty sure it’s Product Hunt-worthy. I’ve been re­search­ing (read: watch­ing YouTube) on what stuff I should use, and af­ter watch­ing a few Fireship videos, I de­cided to build this won­der­ful idea us­ing Vue (as usual, no Nuxt), SASS, and re­mo­tes­tor­age.js, a cool con­cept that my good friend about­David in­tro­duced me to. I’ve never used SASS in a pro­ject be­fore, and I’m in­ter­ested in see­ing how it turns out. After watch­ing a se­ries of Fireship videos, I got a good un­der­stand­ing of what mod­ule bundlers are and how they work and that Webpack is slow, and now good­bye Webpack.

Rickrolling Jenn was re­ally fun, first was via a video through Discord that caught even me off-guard. The sec­ond time was on her stream (CAUGHT IN 4K) when I sent a YouTube video URL to an al­ter­nate rick­roll video and she fell for it.
