Week 2 Update
Feels like a week in the abyss, not really sure what I have got done this week.
I designed some websites which is basically most of the week, design is something I really enjoy but it’s questionable wether there are any results at the end of it, the time just runs away from me, I have tried to time box it, and going forward I am going to set an amount of time to work on design and stick to it. I also had a play with some new tech, astro, cronitor and html.
I did pick up cronitor this week and implemented in some of the cloud flare worker jobs I have, I really like it, I have looked at other metrics and logging solutions before and they are pretty overwhelming, I’ve used new relic quite a bit and that’s a beast, cronitor is really simple and easy to use, I am just posting to endpoint, they have lots of sdks in different languages but for my use case it was easier to just use their telemetry endpoint directly.
It also supports website monitoring, I get a nice view that everything is running correctly, it also has a generous free tier so I have not had to stump up yet.
I also had a jump on the HTMX bandwagon, If you don’t know what HTMX is, its tagline is
“high power tools for html”
“a small, simple, and ultrafast web framework for the Edges”
